- The gum experiment was fun but gross Alicia and I worked together. Alicia chewed gum for three minutes and we measured the Density and volume every time to see if it decreased or increased. The main question of the experiment was Did the gum increase more or decrease more. Alicia chewed the gum for three minutes every time, I was the timer person When the time was up we measured the density with a scale and graduated cylinder. In conclusion, the gum increased because of the saliva and sugar.
Neil Armstrong was born August 5, 1930
Made it to the Moon July 20 1969
Neil Armstrong died August 25th 2012
Armstrong went to college and studied engineering
Neil Armstrong have a degree in aeronautical engineer
Neil Armstrong raised the expectations, the hopes and dreams, of every human on Earth. Thanks to him, we all believe that humans can achieve great things — that we can learn about our place among the stars — that we can all reach up and out — that we can fly, and change the world.Aug 25, 2012 from Purdue What did we gain from going to the moon?
So what did we get from going to the Moon? … The exploration of the Moon—the rocks and lunar dirt the astronauts brought back, and the scientific experiments we performed on them back on Earth—upended our understanding of how the Moon and the Earth were created and how they interacted.Jul 20, Ringed by footprints, sitting in the moondust, lies a 2-foot wide panel studded with 100 mirrors pointing at Earth: the “lunar laser ranging retroreflector array.” Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put it there on July 21, 1969, about an hour before the end of their final moonwalk.
This week we learned about biomes, I think biomes are really cool because of their nature . The Taiga biome contains an animal called a Links it is like a cat mixed with a tiger. The Taiga biome is made up of a large area of woods and snowy mountains. I think it is really cool that the Links Live in north America . There are more than 400 links in the world but, their numbers keep going up and going down unfortunately they are in danger of going extinct. The links eat small animals such as pheasants and rodents . Links live in colder weather where it snows in North America. The taiga biome is located below the tundra biome. The taiga biome is the worlds largest land biome this biome usually has short wet summers and Long winter. The Taiga biome Forest contain fern and pine trees. I like the Taiga biome because it has a mix of Forrest and snow because nature is one of my favorite things.
This week we talked about how different things grow on trees. So we decided to do a play that every year the six graders Do .We invited the fourth grade ,The play was about a fungus suspected of killing a tree’s husband because fungus grow on trees. I was the introducer I asked the fourth grade is the fungus was just doing his job or if he killed the tree and they all told me their opinion . I had a great time doing the play
This week Gus and I got put together to Make a plant bottle so we got soda bottles. And followed basic instructions and when we we’re done with the bottle we filled it with Dirt on the top section and then used a water absorbing string hot glued it to the bottom and a top . We put rocks and put in our plant. Then we got some worms that we found Into our soil and got grass seeds and watered it and poured water on the Stones . I can’t wait to see how much the grass growd
This week we got to read about parachuting cats it all started from malaria first there was malaria and it was killing people so people had to spray this chemical. But then it started killing para Seltick wasps. so peoples roofs were getting destroyed so they sent
in live cats to parachute down to-kill the mice on the other things that also got affected because they didn’t want people to get the disease and it would make it spread more which wouldn’t be good. So we got to retell the story either by drawing it or using a website Cold storyboard that .I chose board that and I think it is a really cool and fun website.
Dear Miss Cuttatree,
I am a saw whet owl.
Where I live: This owl breeds in northern United States, and further southward in mountains. They winter throughout the breeding range, and southward across the United States. Saw–whet Owls inhabit all forest types in Washington state and southern Alaska eastward to Nova Scotia.
It is important to keep our homes, we can help you with mice and rodents. Without owls the food chain will be off balanced . also Some animals will become over populated . These animals are important to farmers because they kill/eat rodents. that kill the farmers crops and helps keep a balance in the food chain.
My description, I am a small broad owl with a short tall i may seem small but pack a punch .
We have several adaptations that make us effective hunters. We have sharp tips at the edge of our wings so it muffles out the sound from prey or predators. I have big yellow eyes in a brown color size 7.1 8.5 inches.
thack you for lilsnig
This week Audrey and I dissected owl pellets which are sort of like hairballs they contain bones and hair we found a big skull. I think we found a pretty good variety of bones. I wore some gloves so my hands wouldn’t get dirty. We made a creature with our bones we use two big rodent Skulls that we found on the top part. And worked our way down we sort of made octopus tentacles with all of our little bones. We got to watch this cool movie called hoot I thought it was funny we haven’t watch the whole thing yet. I have a lot of questions about the movie, that I’ll probably find out later on. I’m also researching about the whet owl I think owls are cool. I’m glad we’re doing these activities so I can learn more about them.We also listened to this funny song about adaptation. My three questions are what types of owls live in Michigan. What climates do owls live in. In addition, are they illegal to hunt? In conclusion, I had a awesome week and look forward to learning more about owls
This week Lars and I blew up Alka-Seltzer. We used 15 mils of water with a half a pill then a quarter then a whole one. we figured out the more usually makes it explode quicker but not as high and usually less makes it explode slower but it goes a little bit higher.
The reason why we did experimenting with Alka-Seltzer, It is to learn how chemical reactions work. we used the flagpole to measure how high up it went. we tried to catch it In the air, it was fun to experiment with Alka-Seltzer I never did it before. my 3rd question is, what else can you use besides Alka-Seltzer to make it explode and how much mils of water are you supposed to use to make it go higher? And why do you have to use Alka-Seltzer For the experiment. What Else I liked is watching a video about that hopping mouse and how it could turn poison into a Pan killer the mouse is pretty much invincible I thought it was really cool.
