Alex Rider: Super Spy

 Pigeon Man

Did you know that fourteen year old spies exist? Well they don’t unless you read the Alex Rider series. I love the series so that’s why I chose the main character of all the books.  In this blog post I will be sharing some learner traits that I think made Alex Rider who he is now. 

First of all, I think that Alex Rider’s most recognizable learner trait is definitely risk taking. I think he is a risk taker because he always gets himself into situations that are very dangerous. An example being when he was in the hot air balloon in England fighting one of Scorpia’s best men, after he discovered that what Scorpia’s Operation Invisible Sword was very lethal ( read the 5th book to understand more ).  

Another learner trait that I recognize in Alex Rider is industriousness because he gets his job done every single time. He never loses focus on what he has to do but it’s usually because whatever he is focusing on would have to be hard to forget because for Alex Rider it is something like a nuclear crisis or madmen with bullets flying all over the place. 

I think that his third most recognizable trait is confidenceEven though at some points in the books he is lacking the confidence to do something, he always finds and he is much more confident for even getting himself into situations like that in the first place. Some examples of his confidence are when he was trapped in the concrete  room while Venice was flooding and yet he had the courage to go down through the floor boards. Because there was no foundation, he fell into a hole full of water but there was a pipe. Long story short, he built up the courage to swim into a potential death trap. 

I want to conclude my post by saying how Alex Rider has shown that you can build up courage in any situation you are in no mater how difficult it might be. he shows that you can do anything even stuff you cant imagine yourself doing and yet you actually can, just like Alex Rider.

The Life Cycle of Water in Winter

As you know, winter is near and Halloween is past, but I never thought winter would be right at our doorstep.

It is November 2nd, just two days after Halloween and it’s snowing. No, it’s half a blizzard out there. I have never seen this much snow in November before. Besides that fact, I looked out the classroom window and thought, what would it be like to be a snow flake?

At first he’s just water vapor floating high in the sky and the temperature is -2 degrees Celsius, but hes not snow, Not yet.

All of a sudden he collides with a speck of dust. Now his water vapor has a surface to form ice on (science) and now he’s bigger but still merely a speck of ice.

Now hes colliding with more water witch means more ice soon he is heavy enough to start falling. He floats slowly but he’s gradually getting  heavier and heavier because he is colliding with bigger ice particles.

Now hes a snow flake, drifting down, down, down.

Now he can see the small town. The town’s only lights are the street lights. He is getting closer to the town now. Finally, he reaches his destination. He lands on the soft ground. His journey is now over…until he melts back into water and evaporates to become rain.

So now you know my version of the life cycle of water in winter, whats yours?
