Alex's Journal

This is my story that I wrote for a Space Colonies Class. I took this online class as part of my homeschool curriculum. It is from the Gifted Kids Network, and you can see all the cool things they created on the GKN Student Blog Site. If you sign up for the Summer Enrichment Animal Planet Class, you can actually talk to me the author of this website.

Master Lox Returns

It was a horrible sight. Fires flashed. Money was lost.
Master Lox and his henchment destroyed the portals.

The only one who escaped was one Funkey, Scratches, who had the power of music. He managed to escape through a portal before it was

At the other side, was Kelpy Basin. He was looking for his relative,
Twing. When he got to her home, the door was broken.

There was a note. "We took Twing. Sincerely, Master Lox.
(P.S. Funkey Island)" Then, Scratches knew what he had to do.

He went to visit his friend, Glubs. He asked him to take him to
Funkey Island so he could save Twing.

When he got to the island, it was heavily guarded. He used the power of music to defeat the guards.

He traveled through forests and over hills till he found a castle made of
crystal. When he found the entrance, it was locked. All of a sudden,
a laser killed Scratches and somebody threw Twing's body over the castle

The End.

This epic poem was dictated and written by Alex Foyt, and not edited by anybody.

It was inspired by Funkeys and by the epic poem of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh tried to get eternal life, but instead, returned to his town as a wiser man. In a way, Gilgamesh is immortal because his name was written on the city walls.

Mesopotamia Stuff

Mesopotamia is the land between two rivers, the Tigris River and the Euphrates River. Now, you can find Iraq - the place where they are fighting over car gas and religious reasons - over there.

In ancient Mesopotamia, there was a load of fighting. We know of their fighting, because of their cuneiform writing. They seiged other cities. They rode in chariots. They had bows and arrows. Scribes told about ancient Mesopotamians who were advanced for their time.

We also know something about the ancient Mesopotamians because of huge scuptures of the Lamassus. The Lamassus has the head of a human, the body of a lion, and the wings of an eagle. It guards palace gates. All together, this massive scupture is so strong that it can guard palace gates from evil spirits.

Ancient Mesopotamians were an advanced, and interesting, civilization.
