The Great Depression lasted over ten years devastating the world! The stock market crash, also known as “Black Tuesday”, made people scared. A couple days later, the economy crashed, too. Everybody rushed to the bank to get their money out, but the bank didn’t have enough cash. Just like everybody, the banks had invested a lot of its money in stocks. Many of banks closed. In the USA, 25% of the population lost their jobs.
Now let’s get to the real question. How did The Great Depression start?
After World War I, the economy was booming! People took loans that they couldn’t pay back. No one cared. It was “The Roarin’ Twenties!” People bought new gadgets like washing machines and radios. They also bought stocks in companies. The prices got higher and higher as they were sold from man to man. People couldn’t pay back their loans, so the economy and the stock market crashed.
What are corn snakes?? Read this post to find out.
The corn snake is found all over North America and are very popular pet snakes. They live about six to eight years in the wild but can live about twenty-three years in captivity. Corn snakes are not venomous and are my favorite type of snake!! Corn snakes can grow up to six feet (182 centimeters)!
Like all snakes, corn snakes are carnivorous. They eat mice, small lizards, and frogs. Also, they may climb trees to eat unguarded bird eggs.
Corn snakes usually breed shortly after winter. They lay twelve to twenty-four eggs. It takes about ten weeks until the baby snakes come out. The young snakes use a scale called an egg tooth to slit the egg open. When they hatch, they are about five inches (SO CUTE!!!).
Corn snakes are great pets because they do not get big. Also, they are very tame so people love them! Another reason to get them as pets is that they are rated in the top 5 best snake pets. Lastly, all you have to feed them are mice and water.
Our dad took us to Angels stadium for Star Wars night. When we got into the stadium, they gave us a free rebel pilot rally monkey. Before the game started, CP-30, R2-D2, Darth Vader, and Kylo Ren marched onto the field!! Some girls shot Angels t-shirts into the crowd, too.
We had to wait forever for the game to begin. Finally, it started. The first innings were very short. Luckily, at the end, the Angels won!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!! My brother, John, got on TV while some news reporters were talking about the game. When we got home, it was about 11:30 P.M. We were so tired.
The game was very fun, and I hope we go to Angels stadium again soon.
For the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, we went to Caspers Wilderness Park. We met a couple of our friends. We got to see the solar eclipse though our glasses and a telescope. Also, we went to the nature center there, and we got to pet an adorable snake with big eyes (I LOVE snakes!!)!
When the solar eclipse was over, we went to the playground and played Lava Monster for the majority of the time!! It was super fun!!
What is a solar eclipse??
A solar eclipse usually occurs every three hundred and seventy-five years. It’s when the moon goes in front of the sun looking like the picture below.
