Empier of the sun

Empire of the Sun in my eyes was a very good movie. This movies was at the same time informative and exciting. I learned many things from this movie. I am glad I watched it.
In this movie there were many symbolic events.

At first it was confusing to figure out who was really the main character of the movie. But after a few minutes of watching it I was able to figure it out. The main character of the movie was a 9-10 year old boy named Jamie. Jamie came from a rich family, his father was a prime minister. They lived in japan in a large house. In his house he had 4 or 5 maids.
When the war started Jamie and his parents were trying to leave the city. They had to get out their car because a tank was gonna crush their car. That was when Jamie got seperated from his parents.

When he seperated from his parents i think thats when the biggest change happened in him. He depended on his parents as do almost all children.
Without his parents by his side he seemed confused and lost. he was more adapted to having a family to go back to when in need and to care for him. But when he seperated from his parents it was a shocking change for him. He had to act and care for himself. With the help of nobody but himself. In the beginning of the movie he started as a bratty spoiled rich boy with a giving rich family.

To a child sepreated from his parents in a empty mansion alone. Having that drastic change in his life was a major part of the movie. 
Later on in the movie he became friends with some American guys. I think that was the best thing that happened to Jamie in the situation he was in. They seemed to be good but bad characters in the movie. In the beginning they brought him in their little brotherhood fed him and quickly turned into his guardians. But further on in the movie one of the American people named Bassie Jamie met were going to leave him behind. At the concentration camp Bassie became a very good friend to Jamie. He helped him out and was one of the key things that helped him survive through everything he went through.
In a way Bassie and the guys with him who were also American became Jamies second family.

Throughout this whole movie one thing that Jamie was looking for was a family. In getting moved from place to place was putting him in a bad situation each time. He would start a family one place and move and try to start a family in another place.

Service Learning Gardening

Gardening for service learning we could first look up different types of flowers to plant for next year at the National Constitution Center. We also could look at the location of where we are going to plant at and draw out a map of the different locations for the different type of flowers. Next we can go and look for different places that have tools that we could us like rakes and shovels  and rocks to make a brocade to section off the flowers to separate from the different flowers if their in rows.
