This Week In Science #15

This week in science we did a marshmallow challenge twice. First we did it by not talking we had to use note paper to interact or by making signals so that the person can know what we were trying to say. The second time we got a chance to talk to each other. We also did a video talking about how this year was for us in science. Also, if we have grown in science and what kind of person we are.

This week in science I learned how to interact with people without talking. That was a challenge for me because it was hard not to talk and I always talk. Also, the second time it was hard because it was so many people talking and it was hard to really hear or say anything. It was also a challenge to try to make the spaghetti straws stand up with just tape and a big marshmallow at the top of the figure we constructed.The first time was my teams biggest success I think because we were really committed to trying to make it stand I guess because that was our first time doing it. The second one was okay it stood high to 43 centimeters so I was really happy about that. The very last time we did the marshmallow challenge was fun but difficult because it was such a rush but it still stood high. I have gotten a little better with working in groups, I'm not as controlling like i was before , we always give each other there own separate parts in the activity.

This Week in Science #13

This is a picture of Charlies habitat ( My Spider)

a) If I were to leave the spiders in the tanks but removed all the plants the spider would die, because the plant is glucose, and it sends out oxgyen and we send the plants carbon dioxide and the plant uses photosynthesis and the energy from the sun grows the plant. So basically the spider needs plants for many reasons.

This week in science #12

Thia week in science we created a spider observation log. We watched a video on ant cateprillar mutualism. We also did research on cellar spiders. We researched the different names they are known for. We also fed the cellar spiders.
 This week in science I learned about cellar spiders habitat. We also learned about commensalism, parasitimsm, mutualism and saprophytes.I learned that a decrease in the population of any part of the food chain can interrupt or destroy an entire ecosystem. I also learned that cellar spiders don't have any predators because they try to avoid any. Before science I never knew what any of these words meant.This week in science i learned that cellar spiders live in quiet and dark places such as garages, caves and houses. Cellar spiders have harmful venom in them but if they bite you, it wouldn't be a danger to you because there mouths are to weak to inject throw the human skin. I also learned about the difference between the food web and the food chain from a brain pop video. That we all watched in class. I also learned how the spiders eat. Also that when food is scarce they steal food from other spiders.

This Week In Science #11

This week in science i did an Eco-system of spiders. I also collected ants and other insects to make a stable habitat for the spider. However, i also looked up a cellar spider.

This week in science i learned that spiders eat other spider. They are also found mostly everywhere, except in Antarctica. In my Eco- system we have a flower but spiders need a certain type of flower. I also leaned what kind of insects and bugs are good for that type of Eco-system. I also had to learn what kind of things to get for the Eco-system. I hope to learn even more about a;; types of spiders

This Month In Science #10

This month in science we did a human impact. We brainstormed idea's about waste,transportation, and water. We also watched video's about the human impacts. We were also showed other peoples posters to give us an idea of how to do ours. After we did that we sketched pictures. However we also where given electrical objects and we calculated watts.

This week in science we learned that all water is not as clean as people think. For example, Fish tanks water have feces in it. Also, that there are all sorts of wastes in the world all around you. The sewer is waste, the pollution in the air is waste and littering is also waste. When we drew our advertisements we learned how to make the image more simple. We also learned how to get the image through to people more clear. Another thing we learned was how to ink and keep the font the same size. We learned how to campaign better. Also we learned that trains is the most used transportation. The less you put on an advertisement also makes it much easier.I hope that next time we do this I have as much fun !

This week in science #9

This week in science we dissected animals , my group dissected a perch and a skate. we had to sketch out the animals from different angles from its Dorsal View and Ventral View. then we had to open photo booth and take pictures of it and upload them. then we cut the perch iwe had to first fin where the bladder and liver than take them out.
This week in science we learned how to use the utensils such as the scapel and the scissors designed espeically for cutting flesh. We also learned at is the ventral View We learned how to see if a perch or a skate is male or female. My perch was a female perch and i learned that she was pregnant but most people take that out and make caviar out. in the skate we cut its intestines and we found that the skate had ate a sand crab. how come when my team and i removed its lungs and lever we found some oil behind it.
