time spotted with orange. Finally, you start animating! Meet Zuck. He is a professional Disney artist and he replied with some awesome answers to ques- tions emailed to him! First, he is a merchandise artist at the Art of An- imations resort. He is part of the sketch artist team that draws one of a kind sketches for the guests and he works 8 hours, 5 days a week. He loves his work because he gets to go to Walt Disney World every day! An animator is an actor with a pencil. Like an actor on stage he or she has to have feelings, emo- tions and personality to make a good drawing. Yes you have to be a good artist with experience with drawing, but when you make a character or a special effect come to life you have to understand the movement to tell a good story. This applies to animals as well. That’s the most important; you have to learn to use the colors to ex- press your art! It also helps to take courses in acting or storytelling again, an animator is an actor with a pencil. Yes you can draw Ariel, but if the scene calls for her to be depressed and if you don’t know what that means or how to draw it, then you just have to draw a nice picture of Ariel. There is so much competition that you need to be the best of the best to get a job with animating. They produce hundreds of sketches per year sometimes he has 15 orders from guests and sometimes he has none. His work is like a snowflake, no two days are the same. He works alone in the resort but he does communicate with a company artist site. Behind the Scenes of Animating (from page 1) P AGE 2 G RADE 4 N EWS The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean in the world. It covers about 20% of the world’s surface which is about 135, 613 kilome- ters of the coastline. It reaches the continents of North America, South America, Asia, and Austra- lia. The Mariana Trench is the deepest portion of any ocean on earth. It goes as deep as 36,301 feet. A few islands spread across the Pacific Ocean such as Tahiti, Fiji, and Hawaii. In Latin Pacific means peaceful. In addition to fish, the Pacific Ocean has many species of animals like whales and dolphins. Baleen whales can grow up to 100 feet long and have special teeth. Their teeth are like combs that help them eat small creatures like plankton. The parts of the whale include the following… dorsal fin, dorsal ridge, anus, slash guard, rostrum, the blowhole, axil- lae, the median notch, the fluke, mammary glands, umbilicus, Uro- genic slit, pectoral fins, and the Ventral pleats. Another animal found in the Pa- cific Ocean is the dolphin. The parts of a Bottlenose Dolphin include the dorsal fin, the melon, the beak, the toothed beak, the eye, the ear, the flipper, the light colored belly, the flukes, the median notch, the grey skin, and the blowhole. Unlike other animals dolphins are very in- telligent. Dolphins eat meat. Dol- phins are also very friendly to hu- mans. An orca is a type of dolphin, not a shark or a whale as some peo- ple think. Corals are not plants, but they are tiny animals called polyps. Jelly- fish and Corals are in the same fam- ily. Polyps live in colonies. The reef of a coral reef is their skeleton. It is illegal to sell or damage coral. Cor- als grow two centimeters per year! Under Da Sea By Mikayla S. and Meghan O.

Even though the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians had their Thanksgiving in October, when George Washington declared that Thanksgiving should be a holiday in November.

Many people get confused and think its three years or three months, but it’s really three days. The purpose of Thanksgiving is to celebrate the magnificent help that the Wam- panoag people gave the Pilgrims for sur- vival. The celebration took place at Ply- mouth Plantation, dur- ing October 1621. The Pilgrims decided to give thanks for their first harvest. They in- vited the Wampanoag people to the celebra- flower. The Pilgrims also sang religious music and songs. There was plenty of food for everyone. The Wampanoag’s brought tur- key and deer, and the Pilgrims brought vegetables from their gardens. I bet you are wondering why the Pilgrims celebrated Thanksgiving in October and now it is cele- brated in November?
