The Sandy Road- Cause/Effect Paragraph

Cause and Effect paragraph

The reason why the men lost water happened was because of being in a desert. If losing water hadn’t happened, then they would not have felt dehydrated. Due to having to search for water and dig a well occuring, they were very desperate to be able to have fresh drinking water. This explains why before you go somewhere that you know you probably won’t have a lot of water think before you go then you wouldn’t have to do such things these men did trying to get water.


The cause of having to travel through the desert is not easy to define. Some people think the cause is nothing will happen and you will turn out to be perfectly fine. Others believe the main cause is maybe something will go wrong and it will be hard to get that fixed, especially in a desert. Understanding the cause of having to travel through a really hot desert is important because it is supposed to be something to look forward to but the men weren't very happy with the things they had to do to get things in the desert.


The effects of falling asleep while traveling. Then they got lost, no sand during the day are significant because they had no idea on how to get out. One effect of having to dig for water is harmful because if you go days without water you are not going to live. Another result is no sand during the day. Because of these outcomes, it is important that you should never give up because you will find a way to success and you should not just quit something because it is to hard.

Kid President- Description

Kid President



One type of structure is Description, it’s an example of description because he is explaining about how the world needs to stop being boring. He says that because he thinks it is not as motivating so he wants that to change. Another type of structure is problem and solution because he talks about how a lot of things in this world can get boring. So he wants a solution to it and he wants it to be better. Lastly he is talking about compare and contrast. He talks about how he compares how the world is boring and then he contrasts about how fun the world would be if it was less boring.



This video is very motivational because he tries his best to make things better for people and he wants to make a change. He explains how to not stop believing in yourself, he talks about how to be on the same team and act like it. The most important reason is that it will be a big outcome on how much people have learned throughout this video.


First Kid President talks about for the world to stop being boring what that means is that we need some more entertainment and we need to stop laying back and be awesome. Next he talks about The Robert Frost Poem that was about how he always had interesting ideas. Then he talked about Don’t stop believing. He said that because when you want to quit something no matter how good you are you can’t stop believing in yourself. He said Michael Jordan space jam. He said this because he was talking about what if Michael Jordan gave up? He would have never come this far. After he quoted “get out there and dance” he said that because believe in yourself and just show your power how much you really have inside of you. Finally he said Create awesome. What that means is he wants the world to create awesome and get out there and be active. That is what Kid President’s presentation was about.
