This dot represents helping people to learn how to read. The reason this dot represents that is because some people can not read and that makes me kinda sad. I love reading. Reading takes you places in your imagination and if you can’t read you can’t go to that place. That is why I made this dot. (MB)

My dot shows a fire truck because the fire people help people house got on fire. When a house catches on fire, the firefighters get in their truck and go to the house that is on fire. The person that calls the fire department needs to know where they live. The fire department can get the house safely. (MB)

I made this dot because I care about nature. This dot shows a tree, a stream, and a flower.
It takes place in nature. I will make my mark by helping keep nature clean by recycling. (JC)

I made this dot because I care about the environment. This dot has a sun, a nice blue sky, and a bunch of trees. This is taking place in a forest somewhere in the world. This is going to make a difference in the world because as you can see, it doesn’t have any pollution in the air. It’s also is a nice day in the environment and it’s nice and peaceful. (JH)

The Dot shows that I want people to stop killing animals that are endangered species. Pandas are dying because people are pushing their living space smaller to put houses there for people to live in. Pandas are dying because they do not have enough bamboo to eat. They can't reproduce fast enough. (CJ)


I made this dot because I want to change the world.  I made this dot because. I wanted to help children that can't afford things like clothes and water and food. If I put my mark in a continent it would be Islam and it would help children that were affected by all the wars. Also,  I want to help the adults in Islam that were hurt in the war. If there are any other people that need help with other things. (AL)

I made this dot to help pick up trash. I made it to show that I pick up trash. I pick up trash at my house. Whenever I see trash at my house I pick it up. The reason that I pick up trash is that I do not like to have a lot of trash around. I am trying to clean up a lot more places. (MG)

I am at a river sitting, and I see some people throw trash in. I want to stop pollution in rivers so we have clean water. It is a river and it is clean a dumps pollution in it - I  said stop.
I make my mark on the world by stopping pollution in rivers. We only have so much water that we can drink. (LH)

I drew a truck that has a camper attached to it.

The reason I drew a picture of a camper is I enjoy camping with my family. I camped in many different places. One of those places was City Park in Oelwein. I feel very happy  when I go camping with my family. (AH)

I drew a picture of my mom, dad, sister, and my little baby sister.  We are a family. I love my family very much. They mean the world to me. (AS)

This will take place all over the world because some people are homeless and hungry. I made my dot this way because people need houses and food. I made this so people can have homes and food. (GK)

Dots to Improve the Earth

My Mark on the world is to pick up trash. Why? Because it can help with the overall earth's health. Like we need to get stuff out of the lakes, rivers, seas and oceans because if any animal that lives there or goes there will get very sick and die.  We can pick trash up in lakes or just the ground. It doesn't matter where it is- just do it! (DAC)

We shouldn’t pollute the earth with our cars and the gas and all the smoke. We should pick up trash all around the school and everywhere, then our earth wouldn't be so polluted. We could stop and tell people to stop using diesel. They should stop doing burnouts to stop all the smoke spreading. We should tell everyone to pick up trash because all of this could fill up the earth. If it fills up, we could have no place to live. The trash would be everywhere. Gas and oil could get in the air and it and make it smell bad. If we don't stop this, our earth could be like this forever. (CB)


If you cut down a tree at least replant them- we are running out of trees. Trees = oxygen
If people cut all of them down, we are not going to be able to breath. The tree cuter people need to replant not just leave the stump there. Replanting is very important and if we don’t there won’t be any trees to help us breath and live longer. (JS)


I am going to tell you how I will make my mark on the world. I would like to clean up around Iowa. I can start by cleaning my community. Then I could start cleaning other communities, with the help of other people. I want to help because if people pollute places, and nobody cleans those places, Iowa’s not going to be like it was before all the pollution. I think everyone wants their home to be clean. But, I’m not going to be able to clean all of it by myself. If I can gather others to help clean, I think that we can make a mark on the world. (ES)

The reason why I made this Dot is because I think the world’s lakes and oceans need to be cleaner than they  are. I am the one who drew this dot about picking up garbage around lakes. My mark is me picking up garbage around a lake. The scene where I am is by a lake. Another reason I made this mark is because people don’t care about what they throw in our water resources. I hope this helps understand more about my mark. (BE)

I am making a difference in the world because I am picking up litter. It is a responsible thing to do. Without a clean environment, we wouldn’t be alive right now. I pick up litter at Platz Park. The park has a lot of trash. She is going to keep picking up the litter to help the world and the environment. (FB)

My Mark on My Future World...
It is a house with a heart to help other people that need help and to go around the world too. It is in Oelwein, Iowa. I love to help people that talk in different languages around the  world. It is something that I like to do to save people that are hurt. My mark is to help other people  that needed help in Oelwein, Iowa. My Mark on the World is do something that is nice- to help other people that need it. ( MR)

I say my dot is the best dot in the class because nobody knows what my dot means! I almost laughed when I said that. The symbol on my dot means college. I wanted to write the word college on my dot because I want to go to UNI college when I get older. The symbol is written in Japanese. I approve my writing. (DP)

My mark on the world is to have a good job in the UK because I want to make a mark in a different place. The reason why is to have my family proud of me. I’m going to start making my mark when I have money to fly to the UK. I want to have a family there. (KM)

My Mark on the World- I want to make an Operating System like Windows or OSX. I would first would need to find out how to do it, after that I would need to find a way to make it, and then distribute it. It may cost a lot of money, especially for the amount of disks I would need and the price of the programs to make it. It definitely won't be an easy task (or a cheap one) but I would like to do it (eventually). I also would need to get stuff to run on it. (CS)

The colors in this dot inspire me to do things. I am going to make my dot in the somewhere to dig. I want to make my dot there because I like to dig for things like rocks or gems. I want to look for the biggest dinosaur skeleton. I like dinosaurs because I like to think about how some creatures lived millions of years ago. (NC)




My Mark on the World... I will play football so I can donate to places that took care of me and educated me. Maybe I’ll farm so people can taste food when I was younger. Like farmers sell corn and that was good. I will play football so I can go to places that I’ve missed because I moved. (DV)

My dot is a house with a heart in it, pointing to music, a brain, and a math book. It means that out of my home, or myself, came music talents, and academic things.

Right now she isn’t feeling good. (CD)

My mark on the world is to stand up for girls. I stand up for girls because many girls can’t read or write all over the world. What I drew on my dot is an arrow because it represents Stand Up for Girls. I also drew a book and a paper because lots of girls and boys can’t read (book) or write (paper). I see myself making my mark in Africa, Europe and Asia and all over the world. (MBW)
