One character trait from a character in IAHH is the determination of William MacDonald when he was looking for Ben. William looked for Ben 20 hours a day for the first week. I would use this determination in my life when I am struggling in school or in sports to help me get through it.
One possible theme of Incident at Hawk's Hill is to never give up. In the book everyone in the search party gave up the search but the MacDonald's did not. This shows that the theme is to never give up because the MacDonald's end up finding Ben and bring him back home.

The sixth graders are going away to Camp Michindoh this week.
I went last year and had a lot of fun.
One thing that I remember from camp Michindoh is the games.
The games are lots of fun at Camp Michindoh. One game is capture the fish.
I didn't win but it was fun.

In class today we read an article entitled War of the Worlds. While reading we learned that people freaked out and thought that there were aliens coming to Earth when they actually weren't. We also read an article entitled Fake News, which is about how you should be careful on what you read and that people that have fake news websites make money. Both these articles can relate to each other because they both talk about how you should research what you hear or read. And you can never be too careful when reading to make sure you are not reading anything that is biased.

I think the theme of the tempest is forgiveness because Prospero forgave his brothers after they dethroned and banished him. After all the bad things his brothers did Prospero still forgave them. This is why I think forgiveness is one take-away from the tempest.
