Judicial Branch

If I was in one of the branches, I would want to be in the Judicial Branch. One reason why is because I could pick how long I wanted to serve. Another reason why is because I would be able to share my opinion to others without them interrupting. Also I could argue with statements without being disrespectful. I would also have some power to make people follow the Constitution in court. I would also be able to treat innocent people fair without argument. I would be able to look through laws to see which ones stuck with the Constitution. I would be able to pass fair and legal laws according to the Constitution.the-judicial-branch-1-728

Amendment Eight Acrosstic

Amendment eight assures that the bail price will not be set to low or to high.

Money from a trial is returned to the person who paid to be bailed out.

Eighth amendment forbids you to torture, burn someone alive, drawing quartering, and you can’t take hostages.

Needed was this amendment because of how the British disciplined them.

Don’t have to pay excessive bails.

Money as in bails can’t be to high.

Eighth amendment also applies to individual state governments not just the federal.

Neither excessive bails or fines can be imposed.

Trial to see if you are innocent or guilty.

Excessive fines won’t be forced on you.

It is sometimes reffered  to amendment VIII as in Roman numerals.

Guarantees protection from cruel and unusal punishment.

Harsh  punishments are not allowed.

This amendment was thought of because of the cruel and unuasal ways the British were treating them.

Coding

I think coding was very interesting. Sometimes it was difficult and sometimes it was easy.The Star Wars one was the hardest I had to have help on those levels a lot. I would rate coding at a 8 since it was difficult but fun.

American Flag

I think Betsy Ross made the flag because every time I bring up the subject her name is mentioned. But I thin Francis Hopkinson designed the  flag because of a readers theater we did in class where General George Washington told Mrs. Ross that Francis Hopkinson had designed and also because of the historical receipts.
