I have never thought about joining the science bowl team. I kind of don't like science because it's hard to understand. When Mrs.Poole asked me to join, I didn't know what to do. She gave me a look at how to play the science bowl. It had buzzers. I knew how to play this because I played it at my trip to Fresno State where they asked us questions. She then told me how to answer. It was a little different than how I played at Fresno State.

She told me we couldn't talk during toss up questions and that we could talk during bonus questions. Then she said the narrator had to say your name like A4 first before you could answer. If you said your answer before he reads your name, it is called a blurt and you give the other team four points. I thought about it long and hard, and finally came to a decision. I decided to join because the winning team from the double elimination round gets to go to Washington D.C. to compete in the National Science Bowl. That made me want to join. Our competition is next week at Fresno State.

Mrs. Poole will be gone next week to go to Arizona. She was a little bit worried that she wasn't going to make it. I'm a little bit worried that she will not make it.
