Biography on the left (by Lauren): Telemanta: Pioneer of Adwan When Telamanta was eight, her family was poor and had no money for schooling. Other children would pass her at her mother’s laundry business (a few tubs with soapy water) and taunt her, quizzing her with hard questions and throwing dirt on the drying clothes. Finally, it got so bad that Telamanta couldn’t go outside without school going on. When the war reached its peak, the family left to go overseas with Atmar Bevrot. Having no friends, it was Telamanta’s chance to start fresh. The war was a big influence on Telamanta’s family. Since they were poor, they suffered under starvation, exhausting work, and totalitarianism. When Atmar Bevrot announced that he was going to leave, Telamanta’s father and many others begged him to take them. Atmar consented. When Atmar tood the families on the sea, they did not know where they were going, but they had to find somewhere safe. The ship, called Merdilast, sailed for a full year before reaching Adwan. Along the way, enemy ships had shot at it, ruining half of the rations. Three people died. After she crossed the ocean with Atmar Bevrot, she searched with him and his crew to find a new place to settle. At first, they couldn’t settle in the east, because they were not used to the annual floodings. Later, people would grow mish rice there. They traveled southwest, halfway across the country. For them, the rains weren’t enough to grow their staple crop, telnun. Later, they would be able to exploit the perfect conditions for the grain. Finally, after all the time following the side of the mountain range, they traveled into the mountains. Telamanta was very pleased and asked Atmar if they could stop. There they started Adwan’s civilization. When Telemanta traveled as a child with Atmar Bevrot, she helped get them feed by finding birds and nests. When a horse fell ill, she would nurse it back to health. When they settled down, she helped domesticate some of the local animals, such as the kelpe. This proved to be a great advantage. When she finally settled down in Alderig, she started an inn. The farm behind it still supplements the food for the Blue Dier Inn, a landmark in Adwan’s history.

After that happened he was adopted to the Osaga family. When he was adopted his life changed, because of the new way of living. When Kasuki was with his first family he didn’t get education, but he did when he moved in with the Osaga family. Kasuki’s emotions were almost over about what happened. But he had missed his parents. He would pray for them every single night for them to come back. As Kasuki turned twenty-one he moved on, but whenever he heard about sand storms, he would remember the memories of his parents.

That night even though he was only 11 he wakes up in a cold sweat because he had dreamt that they (his family) would move to a forsaken land. The next morning his father told him they would sail across the ocean. His family followed the compass needle to the west for several weeks and then. Land! They saw their new home. The compass had spoken the truth. When William Greenbold stepped off the ship that had brought him there, his clothes were of silk and satin, but as exploring went his clothes tore more and more. When he came back from his trips the rest of the expedition found him already coming back with scars and tears in his clothes. William came up with an idea and it was to make more clothing out of animal skins. After a day or two of hunting and skinning and sewing he finally had some decent clothes. The leather pants and the crude fur vest made him look more native than white man. Some of his men were so fooled by his appearance they jumped off into the brush never to be seen again. William Greenbold became accustomed to close encounters with snakes, poisonous bugs, carnivorous plants, savages and rebel ruffians. But once he became too accustomed to a native. Once he was walking and exploring when he stumbled across a small tunnel. He followed the tunnel down to a cave with wall paintings of people chasing large animals with spears. He had never seen these paintings. As he crawled back through the tunnel he heard a threatening cry. “AYEEEE!” A savage ruffian charged him with a spear. The spear broke two ribs and a shoulder blade. William fell, badly wounded. The cries made by the triumphant native attracted William’s comrades who killed the native and got William to safety. William Greenbold I was on a scouting trip when he and his brother were taken prisoner by natives. The night he was to be sacrificed he and his brother escaped and made it to branch camp. That very next day his branch camp was attacked by rebel natives all but William, Oliver and Granky were killed. The trio was taken prisoner and marched to the rebels’ camp. The next day they escaped from their foes by starting a fire in the tall grass. That afternoon they accomplished the second thing in this new land and that was climbing to the tallest point in Yanoane by accident.

Uukana is a five-cent shop on Bul Street. We got paid twenty cents an hour, but that wasn’t enough to pay for the food and house, so my sisters had to work also. My mom stayed at home and do whatever moms do when they are at home and the men are at work. I joined the military when I was about twenty-two, so I just got out of college. I did it because I didn’t have a house or money so it was a good choice. I was in the military for three and half years. My wife and I were saving money up for an apartment. We were living in her sister’s house. Her sister had cancer, so we had to leave. When I came home my wife and I had $52,000 between us, and her sister pitched in a little. When we got our apartment, it was a good month. Once we moved in we had a little money left over. Then The Core gave me an award and $40,000. I didn’t have a job, so I had a lot of free time. It took me about fourteen months to write and to get it in the store, but I did it. The book was a bigger hit then we thought. (120,000 copies in two months!) You can only get the book on-line and in South Doe-kida. Besides the money and fame, people notice me more. The book is called “My Wild Life.” It tells people of Doe-kida who I am, who I was and who I will be. My parents always took me as a serious person even though I was really funny. Now my wife thinks I am always joking around, but I tell her I’m not kidding. I was always and I still am an important person to my wife and family and Doe-kida. I’m important because of what I do for my country, like serve in the war. I ran for President (last) and even started my clubs, groups and fundraisers for cancer and AIDS, etc. People in Doe-kida respect me a lot and will keep respecting me, even after I die.

When Crowka was moving to a different country, he passed a field full of ballcrams. He saw one puff up and it looked like a Wazark ball (a big Wazark ball). Then he got a thought that if he’d play Little League Wazark, he might have a fun time. So his dad worked for two whole years to sign him up and he loved it. At the age of 25, Crowka tried out for the Gotrok Wazark team and didn’t believe in himself, but he was actually not that bad. He heard he made the team nd he was very excited and after that he loved to practice and then came his first game. He was running to the goal with three guards behind him. He didn’t have that much confidence in himself. Well, he made the point to win the game. He took a shot at the net. The guard dived for it and he missed.

She just did a triple back flip off of the pigmy trampoline and landed square on the uneven bars. Then she did the star move! Oh… I am so sorry I don’t think you know what the star move is! Here I will explain it to you. First you stand with your feet on the lower bar and your hands the higher bar. Once you have established your balance you let go of the high bar with your hands. About a millisecond before you hit the ground you bend toward the lower bar and grab it next to where your feet are. The next step is to let your feet off of the bar. You will swing under the bar with your feet first. Then once your entire body is underneath the you let go of your hands and land on your feet. The reason it is called the start move is because you land with your limbs outstretched. To other people it looks like a star. Oh, I have to go. I will see you tomorrow!

This scene is about the time when Andy is giving Dwight his sword and will be in jail for 25 years. The war started over the death of Mr. Ed F. Truck Vanderhoozy the 3rd JR. Ed was an admired man of DOE-KIDA he was the president at age 31 and won twice in a row. It was a dark day when Ed passed away but now most people have gotten over it and some still wish he was never diagnosed with cancer. Cancer wasn’t the problem but ill tell you what was. You’re probably asking why is Andy going to jail it’s because he pushed Ed trucks casket into the ocean and that will bring up more questions like how’s Ed Truck. Well that’s why I’m here. Ed truck was the governor of doe-kida and died because of that man in the background. If you are wondering what will happen well for Dwight a hero a star or even a walker doe-kida ranger. For Andy he will be in jail for 25 years.
Shallow Lake Habitat of Truantenaka

Return to the big map Created by Theresa. Listen to the audio for this diorama. Text: In this Truantenakan shallow water Lake Habitat you will see wildlife you won’t find any were else. When a Nunca dies its life is only half over, it returns to the soil by decomposing into nutrients. The process goes somewhat like this 1. Dies 2. Sinks to the ground 3. Decomposes 4. Is absorbed by another living thing Once it reaches the bottom the plant or animal slowly begins to decompose. Then the round toothed eel comes along and eats it then it poops it out. Once the round toothed eel does that the plants can absorb the nutrients. When the Nunca fish dies the round toothed eel comes along and eats it then when the eel poops the Tuter grass can absorb it. The Tuter grass provides the amount of filtered sunlight the Aky-Aky plankton need to survive. Then all types of shrimp eat the Aky-Aky plankton. Then the shrimp are eaten by fish. When the fish die the round toothed eel comes along and the cycle starts again.

Return to the big map Text with this diorama: Welcome to the oasis in Karataki. Today you’ll be learning about the nature around here. Let’s go and explore! Under the blazing hot sun, glowing up there like a hot fire ball up there in the sky with clouds gently moving. It is oasis that’s glimmering under the sun. There you can find natures creation. The Elf Owl looking for its prey, high above the dunes. The dunes changing shape from this way to that. Around the oasis there are the palm trees, the water plants such as the Hasado, the Repei and the Hertei. There are the cactuses that are called the Yeila (the small cactus) the big straight one is called the Fertuy. The one that looks like a palm tree is called the Silene. You see the elf owl gliding, the plants here and there. The big dunes and the swirling, white clouds flowing. You also see the sandy dunes. And the puddle like oasis. Cactuses behind and in front up here and the big bright sun too.
Underwater scene from Argetvatan
Made by argybarg
Created by Connor. Listen to the audio for this diorama. Text for this diorama: In Argetvatan near the surface you would find all kinds of things. You would see fish, coral, seaweed, sand, and maybe crabs! You’d also see tons of shells and maybe some clams or oysters. In Argetvatan if you were close to a coral reef you would see the beautiful colors, red, blue, green, pink, and purple. If you felt the coral you would feel slime and it would be soft! Argetvatan’s coral reefs can be even prettier. They can be a mix of colors! In deepest Argetvatan you might find some angler fish! The way you can tell if they’re angler fish is if they have lights coming out of their heads. Other than that you would see mainly dirt, rocks and maybe a few fish. Who knows? You might discover some new things if you come help us. Besides we could use a few helpers. See you there!

These 19 students (plus , who missed the photo) made up this continent. We spent a lot of the year exploring the empty space of their continent, But the students claimed their countries and really started production in February 2007, with this museum what was open for a week in June 2007. These are 4th and 5th graders at Chautauqua Elementary on Vashon Island, Washington. Hover your mouse over a student's face and you'll find a link to the board about that student's country. Do the same for the map and you can visit the map and dioramas area. This is part of a classroom museum from an invented continent, a classroom project at Chautauqua Elementary on Vashon Island, Wash. Visit the project page to learn more.
