Famous Person

Hello my trusty grade 7's!

Welcome to your second blog response!

Just a few quick reminders:

1.  Only 12 of you responded last week.  Make sure if you haven't responded, you do today.
2.  Don't forget to respond back to at least two of your peers.
3.  Don't forget to use your school username.  Otherwise, I won't know who you are.

Thank-you and good luck on this week's question!

If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be and why? State the person's name, his/her occupation (i.e. politician, comedian, musician, author, etc.), explain why you want to meet this person and list 3 questions you would like to ask him/her.

Once you have posted your response to this question, respond to at least 2 of your peers. You can ask them about why they chose to meet this particular person, share thoughts and stories, add questions to their list of things to ask, etc.

To get you started, I have included a picture of one person I would love to meet.  Bonus mark for the first person to tell me who he is!  :-)

Mr. Boettger

  1. First of all, that picture is of Nelson Mandel.

    The person that I would chose to meet would be Dr. Seuse. I would chose to meet Dr. Seuse for many reasons. For one, he is an inspiering person for people of all ages. And even though when you're young you might not see it, his books have good meanings. For example " Oh the places you'll go" has a good meaning because it's kind of saying you can do any thing you want. Also, he is good at wording what he writes and I would ask him for some tips on write good pieces.

    That is why I would chose to meet Dr. Seuse if I could meet one famous person.

  16. I would chose Johnny Depp because he is an amazing actor and some questions I would ask him is....
    1. What made you want to become a actor?
    2. Do you enjoy being an actor?
    3. How old were you when you started acting?
    He is a good role modle because in all of he characters he show different affects. Like when he plays the role "Mad hatter" he shows that it is ok to be mad(as he would say and it is like being CRAZY). When he is a vampire as Barnabis Collins near the end he say "you may take me but not my family". That shows he is caring and caring is a good thing so that is why I think he is a good role modle.
