A new kind of Freedom

What convinced Johann to go to America?:

The wilderness of America. And also if he stayed in germany they are in grave danger. Because the duke's cavalry have come into their town and shut the church doors. But still the people wanted to go so the church members will meet in secret. But if they got found they will get arrested. So it is more safe if he moves to America. People were excited of the plan of the new colony called ''Holy Experiment". All different religious people can join. It was the only place in the world that had a new freedom. For all people to worship. When Johann heard about this new colony he thought America sounded wonderful.

How did he feel about the decision later?:

He was really happy to stay at America. Every day seemed like a adventure for him. He thought nothing was more amazing than Philadelphia. It was filled with lot's of wonderful things. He just enjoys America so much. He likes the things there the people there and everything else. He had a totally different living in there. His favorite time was Market day. Usually the whole family could ride on a wagon to Philadelphia.

Molly's Dream

What dream does molly have?:

Molly's dream is to be free, and not to be a slave. Just to be free. Now her mother have passed away. So there father is working very hard, but they are very poor. So he had to ask Molly and Willie to go to America to work there. But molly didn't want to go. But if she worked hard there and earn alot of money, she will be able to come back to her own land and be free.

What will she need to do to make her dream come true?:

She will have to try really hard to find a job and earn money for her family to live. Then good things will go back to her, so she will be free. And her family won't be very poor anymore. And they wouldn't have to move to other places to find a better job ,and a better living. Just one moment,molly will have to go through the hard feelings. Then they will have a happy life. They can stay with there family all the time. They won't have to ask there young kids to go to other countrys and work there to earn there money . And they won't be slaves or servants. I think those people who work hard for there family,always deserves something good. You can do anything if you believe yourself that you can do it. And remember god is always with you.


1.Why do people move

People move to other places because many of them are poor. They are escaping from there own country. But to move they can't just go in to that country. People called customs agents have to check on you when you arrive to another country. Just even for a short vacation. That is how strict they are when you just even come and visit a country. They will have to always check on you wherever country you go. There are a lot of immigrants in America. So they move to different kind of places. But like people from China they are living in china for years and years so they don;t really move to other places compared to America. That's why the population of china is a lot. Because there are a lot of people living in china.

Essential Questions

1. Why do people move?

Some people move , because they are poor. So they go to different kind of places to find better shelters, and food for there living. But sometimes even they move to other places, they can't
find good shelters for them self. But for them to move they will also have to pay money for the trip. If they move it will also be better education for them. But sometimes for little children it is not that easy to move and travel to places. I think the people who move will have a very good living. If they were used as slaves , and if they move I think they will have freedom. And feel like they are free from the world.

2. What do we do when other people don't think,act,or speak the same we do?

Some people might not want to learn how to speak and communicate to each other. But others might want to learn how to speak, so they can communicate to others. So it depends on the person. Everybody thinks a different way. Some might wan to think hard for things they do, but some might not want to think so hard. But they are both not really wrong if they can do the thing at the end. when people act they have to first think but some might not be able to think. So sometimes they can move to other places to learn more faster.
