Here we see a picture Archer drew of an alien who most closely resembles the letter M. He has labeled the elements of his portrait: eye, eye, nose, mouth, "alien," "space," and "light." As you'll see, stars form an important theme in his alien-related work this week.
In case you were wondering about this M-shaped alien, Archer has provided a fact sheet.
- What is this alien's name? The nail
- Where is this alien from? space

- What was this alien's life like before it came to Earth? A good life that is fun

In non-alien schoolwork, Archer imagined what this happy little boy wanted from his friend the tree (did they read The Giving Tree?). Answer: "an apple. a love heart. and a blue ball."
And finally, I was intrigued by Archer's definition of freedom -- and I believe I agree with him, though I would mark him down for redundancy.
I think freedom is: going to school. Going to school is what I think freedom is.
