Tuck takes Winnie out to the pond to explain everything to her because it explains all about the life cycle. It explains about the life cycle because Tuck tells how the water is different everyday because it keeps on moving. Like the life cycle of people. We people change everyday, sadly for the Tuck's they are stuck. Not changing looking the same forever. Tuck needs to get it through Winnie's head that it's not right for everyone to be stuck and dropped out of the life cycle.
Tuck takes Winnie out on the lake to explain everything to her because it is soothing out there and there is not much noise. It would calm her down and not make Winnie get excited. It would make me very calm, except that I don't trust any rowboat. For example, a soothing quote in the book is," The skit was a ragged blaze of red and pink and orange, and its double trembled on the surface of the pond like color spilled from a paintbox." That would calm me down just thinking about it.
The reason Tuck takes Winnie out on the pond to explain everything is because the represents what he is talking about. The thing he talks is the cycle of life so he refers to the river in his explaining that it has cycles to. He said when the water passes throughout the river then it goes to the ocean. Sometimes water gets stuck in the pond he that is just like the Tucks stuck away from the cycle. He also told her that if there was a way to get back on the cycle he would do it no matter what.
I think that tuck took winnie to the pond beacuse she needed to know what it was like to live forever. Also it is like the pond is a symbol for the earth. It has a lot of different shapes of life just like the earth. They may be different but they all are changing together. So I think tuck took her out there to show what it is like in the real world and how it is to be unchanging.
Tuck took Winnie out to the pond because it was easier to understand what he was talking about, when he was referring to the animals,plant-life,and lake.Tuck told Winnie that everything is a big wheel,it is constantly turning and it is always changing. But,in the Tucks case when they drank from the spring their wheel just stopped.Tuck also said that he wishes that he could get back on that wheel and he would do anything for it. It was easier for Tuck to take Winnie out on the lake because everything on that lake goes through that wheel,that wheel is called the life cycle.The frog goes through the life cycle and so do the plants;they die.Also, Winnie doesn't want to be in that cycle but neither does she want to pass.That's why the frog plays a big part in the book and it really symbolizes the book and the chapter.
I think that Tuck takes her out on the pond because he wants to explain everything to her in a quiet, peaceful place were its nice and calm because just a little while ago she got a little more worked up and she wanted to go home even more so he wanted to keep her calm. Also because he was also describing how life was a wheel just like the current in the pond and he was relating things to the pond so thats another reason he might have wanted to take Winnie out to the outside in the pond. I also think that he just wanted to get away from the family to explain it to her because the family might interrupt and say different things and I think that he thinks his explanation is the best because he is probably the oldest and he has experienced a lot more than everyone else.
he takes winnie out on the pond to tell her why to not tell anybody about the river. he does this because if people new about this they would be lining up ready to drink. they dont know how terrible this is. another reason tuck took her out on the river is so she could now how terrible it is. to explain not to tell people because she doesnt know how bad it is
I think what jesse was trying to say is death is part of your cycle.when he explained about the water cycle new water comes in and old water goes out. It is like when babies are born and people die. and he is saying they are stuck on the same spot on the life cycle.
Because the pond is full of life, and life is what Tuck is talking to Winnie about. He explains that life goes in circles, and that life changes every day. He gives some examples from the pond like the bullfrog. He then explains how they are not part of the circle of life, that they are just like stones on the edge of the road. He tells Winnie that if she told Winnie the secret to the people of Treegap they would all drink it and then it would be to late.
The reson Tuck takes out Winnie to the pond is because the pond is a good place to show examples about what he was saying. There he could use the example about the boat being stuck in a better way. Same about the water and how it is all connected to a wheel but they weren't. The pound was a good place to show Winnie how it isn't that amazing to live forever to not be part of that wheel anymore. It is a good place to shoe examples.
Tuck took Winnie out on the pond because water is a spinning wheel. It goes in small streams and eventually gets to the ocean after a while. The ocean water evaporates, and the water that was evaporated, falls back down to the surface. Life is also a spinning wheel. You start out young, then you grow to be old, and eventually die. New people are born again, and the cycle starts all over again. The Tucks aren't on the wheel anymore. They got dropped off, to stay their age and live to see the last of the earth. The pond was a great way to start the conversation. Winnie just needs to understand that nobody should drink that water, ever. Also, the pond is a little more private to talk about such serious things. That is why Tuck took Winnie out on the pond.
I think Tuck takes Winnie out to the pond to explain everything to her because the scenery makes it easier to explain. For example, several times in Tuck's speech he makes refrences about the animals, plants, and even water around him. I think the scenery of the pond helps him explain the concept of living forever to Winnie because the pond has animals, fish, toads, frogs, water, and just lots of life that changes around them, and that helped Tuck explain that everything is part of a wheel , like a lifecycle, changing and growing, and how the Tucks were stuck and had been removed from the wheel.This is an important part in the story because it really does help you to understand why living forever isn't good, because you no longer will live a full really happy life. Also in my opinion it wouldn't be good to live forever because of many things, but I already wrote about all that in our other journal entry.
i beleve that tuck took winne out on the pond because it was calm and suthing. colors that she saw seemed to sooth them. for exaple in one of the sentence tuck started to rush just like we said in class. however on the pond when tuck said something it was calm. it said this on chaper twelve the sentence ended saying tuck said calmly. this is why i think tuck took winne out on the pond
I think Tuck took Winnie out on the pond to explain everything because of the wildlife. Everything on the pond is alive and growing. This shows winnie how beautiful life cycles are and that she wouldnt want to miss out on it. If she would drink the water from the spring winnie would never experience new ages. The pond shows the circle of life and tuck is persuading her to live it.
Tuck takes Winnie on the pond to talk about the cycle of life. He compares moving water in a stream and the spinning of a wheel to the cycle of life. Tuck tells Winnie that living forever is not as great as people think it is. He tells Winnie living forever is like being a rock on the road. Tuck says if he could die like other people he would. He is trying to convince Winnie not to drink the elixir of life.
Well....... I think that Tuck brought Winnie out to the pond because the ocean and river and streams there are like a cycle. First you start in a stream and then you become a river. Then you flow into the ocean. He was trying to say that life is a cycle too and you shouldn't jump off of it. You just have to stay and watch everyone go by. Tuck said that the water is always moving but us Tucks we stay right here, just like this boat. That is why I think that Tuck brought Winnie out in the river to tell her about the spurt, and explain their lives.hadley
I think that the reason Tuck took Winnie out by the pond was so that he could talk to her in private, just them. It said in the book that Tuck could explain what happened really well so he wanted to tell her face to face what really happened, he also knew how important it was that she didn 't run home and tell everyone becuase it was cause chaos so he needed to be able to truly tell her why it is so important. I'm not sure but I think that he might've figured out that the man in the yellow suit was listening from when Winnie told them about him so he tried to go out by the pond because there was noone around and if there was you'd be able to hear them.
I think one of the reasons tuck took winnie out to the pond to tell her is becuase "the pond has all of the awnsers". another reason is because it is ver peaceful and quiet. also, when you are somewhere peacful you can concentrate better so tuck can explain. these are some of the reasons tuck took winnie to the pond to explain everything.
I think Tuck took Winnie out on the pond because when he was explaining he could use examples from the out side. And it was more peaceful outside. Or he thought that she would be distracted from the bad stuff and will focus on the goods in such a wonderful place.
Tuck takes Winnie out to the pond because the pond is like the Tucks. they can not be damaged/hurt like water, if you shoot a bullet into water does it leave a mark (no). Just like the Tucks. When Tuck shot himself in the heart, bullet went right through him. The pond is always trying to get to the end of the cycle (ocean) so are the Tucks but they can't. The have been taken of the cycle off life.
Tuck takes winnie out to the pond because he wants to talk to her in private and not wake up the rest of the house. Also Tuck took winnie out to the pond because the pond is a big part of the Tucks. They love their pond and can do whatever they want. I also think Tuck takes winnie out to the pond because Tuck can only be himself out there and feels safe only when he's on the pond. Tuck wants to be honest to winnie and he can only do so taking her to a private place where he feels comfortable.
Oh yeah I wrote more then some of your students, we are still better because we always put the amount of sentences you wanted. Also you had a lot more fun with us then with them i bet. Right??? LIKE A BOSS I BE, FLYING IN THE AIR YOU SEE, WHEN YOU LOOK UP ALL YOU SEE ARE MY FEET.
