What's in the Bag?

There's a game called "What's in the Bag?" where you try to guess who the person is by pulling out the items or artifacts in the paper bag one at a time. The items are random things that are important to the person. For example, if we played the game and pulled out a (1) football, (2) Bronco Jersey (3) Super Bowl ring, (4) map of Indianapolis, Indiana...who do you think would be "in the Bag? Peyton Manning, of course.

Now, imagine you are putting items or artifacts in the bag for people to try to guess that you are "in the bag." What items or artifacts would you put in the bag? Tell why that item is important to you? Be specific, give details, try to imagine us pulling that item out of the bag as you describe it.

Next, I would select a Halloween mask, that would represent Halloween, my favorite holiday. After the mask, I would place a Jack Skellington bobblehead in the bag.

  16. What’s in the Bag?

    If I were to choose what people would pull out of the bag to know who I am I would want them to firstly pull out my dog’s collars. I would choose to have them pull out my dog’s collars because of how much I love my puppies. The next thing that I would like to be pulled out of the bag would be my favorite book Pegasus and the Flame of Olympus. I would want them to pull out the book because the book fits my personality and who I am. They would also know that I love books. The following thing that I would want them to draw out is a picture of the world. I love the world and all I want to do is save it. Additionally I would want them to put a lacrosse ball inside the bag because that is one of my favorite sports. It would let people know that I ( or the person that put all the stuff in the bag) that lacrosse was important to me. Finally, I would want to put in my ski boot. Skiing really completes me. I love winter, so that can also tell people that.
    I want everyone to know who I am by my bag, and that’s what I think I just did.

  22. For “The Bag Project” we are suppose to choose 3-5 things to ‘put in the bag’ for my things in the bag first of all I would choose a green marker because I did this color test (ridiculous) and my color was green which means someone who is logical, can say mean stuff, does not care about things, and is smart. First of all, that's a perfect example of me plus I love to write in colorful markers. Next, I love to read so much I would choose it over TV if its a good book. I would throw in a book maybe The Hunger Games. BEST BOOK EVER. Finally, I would throw in a picture of a dolphin because my brother JD when he was little he could not pronounce his name so he said dolphin which he could pronounce. So that's why I would throw in those things in the bag.

  25. What’s in my bag?


    What I would put in my bag would be my Family,Music,A Troublemaker,A Friends and,An Educational Person.I’d put these things in there because they’re things I like and things I need.


    I need my family because I would be lost without them and not have anyone in life to be close to.I like family because I like to talk to them about problems,and they can really help me at times.Second of what I would put in my bag would be Music.I like it because it’s close to me personally and I can make,listen to it and love it.A Trouble maker would probably be because it helps me solve big and small problems.That’s even though I don’t like people like that who make problems.Friends most definitely because they help like family though trails and they’re just cool fun friends.And they’re fun to hangout with.An eduacational person would be fun to have around to solve problems within math and other places.Also with trouble makers it would be fun.

    So that’s what I would put in my bag!

  26. If I were to have a bag to describe my life I would but four important things in that bag. First, I would put my stuffed animal turtle. I think that turtles are a sign of peace and perseverance and I think those are great qualities. Second, I would have my broncos charm bracelet. The brace one, reminds me of home and two, I think that there’s a lot of people who like different teams that aren't the broncos and I think that It’s important to remember where you came from. Third, I would put in a tiny pig with wings made out of glass. The pig reminds of when people say “when pigs fly” as in it couldn't happen, now I always think anything can happen.Fourth, I would put in my Christmas snow globe from Phoenix, Arizona. The snow globe reminds me of all the good times I've had there and my cousin Billy who lives there.
