Read Smore About It

You Are What You Eat
One place your food can come from is a slaughter house. Many workers who have jobs at these slaughter houses are treated horribly. The conditions are dirty and unsanitary, and many workers are hurt on the job. These workers get paid little for what they do and are completely unappreciated. They barely make enough to feed their own families. I think you should consider this before you eat because you should not take the food you have for granted.
Dear Future Citizens of America...
Dear future citizens of America, I am Alice Paul. In the 1910's, my fellow suffragists and I fought for your right to vote. Us women were treated unequally and were seen as not qualified enough to do the same things men could do. But i knew women could be just as successful.
The victory of winning the right to vote took more than 70 years. Suffragists put a lot on the line to fight back, children, husbands, family, but they were courageous and strong and knew it was the right thing to do. We protested outside the White House with signs, chanting together, through horrible conditions trying to raise awareness. Some of us were arrested and jailed, and asked to pay a fine. But we didn't lose hope.
In 1920 the sadness and hard work was all worth it. What us suffragists had been dreaming about for years was finally here, women gained the right to vote. I hope you use this letter as inspiration in your life. My advice to you would be to never let anyone tell you you can't do something. Keep dreaming and work hard and you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
Sincerely, Alice Paul
QUIET! KNOW YOUR PLACE SHUT YOUR FACE!

NEW DANGERS OF WAR
Poisonous gas is being used to kill soldiers during attacks. This gas is highly destructive and can kill many at a time. Gas masks are the only thing that can protect you from these disastrous fumes.
Machines guns are also being used, these new high tech weapons can fire multiple rounds much faster than regular bayonets. Tanks are very large, protective, strong and reliable. They are pieces of equipment that transport soldiers and protect them from enemy fire.
This is a warning to everyone, these new methods and weapons of war are very dangerous and if we don't educate ourselves about them now, we could be in for trouble.
After hundreds of years of following the same rules, wearing the same corsets, and having to cover your arms and legs, I think it was time for a change. These young girls came in and did just that. They didn't do anything wrong, they just wanted to have some fun!
I think what made this time so carefree and fun was the new upbeat music, elaborate dance moves, and extravagant clothing and beauty choices. This really set the tone for the future women, that they didn't have to follow something just because it was what was supposed to be acceptable. The flappers showed that they were just doing what made them happy.
"The Golden State"
The 1906 earthquake was very destructive. Hundreds of people were killed, and thousands of buildings were left in ruins. This massive earthquake showed as an 8.3 on the scale.
"The Lone Star State"
In 1901 there was suspicions that there was oil under 'Spindletop Hill". So men starting drilling to see if they could hit any. As they kept drilling, nothing was showing. But one day oil shot up out of the hole and into the air. It spewed for nine days until it could get under control. 100,000 barrels shot out per day. This created The Texas Oil Boom.
