Sir Edmund Hillary RJ Jaczko By: Timothy R. Gaffney
Timeline 1944 Hillary joins Air force during WW II This is courage because he could get killed. 1974 Climbs Mt. Cook (12,349 ft) this is courage Because that was his first climb so it could be dangerous 1952 Hillary climbs Cho Oyu (26,750 ft) A peak west of Everest. This is courage because that is a very tall mountain, in the top 10 tallest in the world. 1953 Hillary reaches the summit of Mt. Everest (29,028 ft) It is courage because that is the tallest peak in the world with very little natural oxygen
Timeline 1960 Hillary does tests on Mt. Makalu, high-altitude physical condition. That is courage because if something goes wrong then someone could die. 1958 Hillary sets out to cross Antarctica's Polar Plateau. This is courage because of the bitter cold and the chance of frostbite. He climbs Mt. Herschell (11,000 ft) in Antarctica. This is courage because it is so cold and the altitude raises the stakes 1981 Hillary attempts to climb Everest again. This is courage because Mt. Everest is tall and he is climbing from a different side this time.
Character Traits One trait that Hillary has is passionate. Passionate is red so the slide is red. He is passionate because He has climbed many mountains and if he didn’t get to the summit then he would try again later. Another trait was courageous and that is also red. He is courageous because he climbed the coldest, highest, most dangerous mountian in the world.
Hillary is goal-oriented and that color is blue. He is goal-oriented because if he had a goal to reach a peak then he would at some time or another. He is also persistent, that color is blue. He is persistent because he would try until he reached the summit. He tried at Everest twice before he reached the summit. Edmund is very inspiring and that is yellow. He is inspiring because he was the first person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest. Another trait is intelligent and that is orange. He was smart enough to avoid ice falls and avalanches on his way up the mountain.
If Edmund was to have a special room I think that it would have ice picks, a map of all the mountains he climbed, a bee keeping suit, and the news paper that had the story of his climb up Everest. The ice picks would be there because they are one of the most important tools in climbing. The map would be to remind him of all the climbs he had. The bee suit would be to remind him of home and bee keeping. The news paper would be to show that he was the first person to accomplish an amazing feat.
Award Climber Of The Year Award I think that he should get this award because he was the best climber when he climbed Mount Everest. It was one of the biggest feats ever accomplished.
Summit Café Summit Salad Salads are tasty and a healthy choice. Appetizers Entrées Desserts Hillary Hamburgers Meat is a good source of protein and energy which all climbers need. Peak Pudding After reaching a peak you might want a delicious pudding as a tasty snack. Belinda Bread Belinda was Hillary’s daughter lost in a plane crash and this bread is to commemorate her. Sherpa Soup Sherpas lead Hillary on his climb up Everest. They are important to climbers. Celebration Cake Being the first to climb Everest you get to have a celebration, don’t you? Himalayan Herring Fish is a tasty meal and can last ling in the cold weather of the Himalayas. South Pole Pizza Pizzas are warm, and I bet that would have been nice on the south pole. Artic Apple Pie There were artic temperatures at the peaks and at the south pole.
I chose Superstar by Lupe Fiasco because it is about people wanting to know the story and everybody wanted to know the story of
Mt. Everest when Hillary got back. Also the song is talking about cameras flashing and microphones, which people had at the base of Everest after the climb. People tried to buy the story for thousands of dollars.
