What’s the matter project

For class, I did a project called what’s the matter in our world. The goal was to choose a sort of world problem and I chose plastic pollution. I made a podcast with my awesome sister about my topic. I will put the links below: (the first link for part one does not work)

part 1 plastic polution

part 2 plastic polution

In this lesson I learned a lot about plastic pollution and how it harms everyone. Plastic pollution is a very serious matter.

What surprised me most about this is that the plastic also harms human health.

This was a super fun project and I really enjoyed it. It was so much fun to record with my sister! in the future, I hope that plastic pollution stops. But until then, everyone can help by recycling!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

 

Wonder Choice Board

For class, we were reading the book Wonder about a kid with a facial  problems named August. For homework we were told to do some things related to the book. I made a school on a fun game I play.  I made a few dorms, a chem lab, a small school farm, and more! The book is about inclusion so I made the world public so others could see what I created! Here are some photos:

Interactions of Indigenous peoples and europeans

In social studies we are learning about indigenous peoples. In class we did a project where we made a type of indigenouse house. I chose a longhouse! Here  is my project:

  We also learned about the three sisters. The three sisters are a group of vegetables. Corn, beans, and squash. The corn stalks supported the bean vines, while the low lying squash kept the ground moist and stopped weeds from growing.

my sister is a robot a short story by meadow

  Chapter 1 

My sister is a robot. I can tell. Why else would she need all those robot parts? 

Sometimes I hear her say:oh! I need to charge! Also she always wins computer games. I always lose. IT’S NOT FAIR! Whenever I try to spy on my sister I trip or pull something by accident, which sets off an alarm. It always ends in me getting punished. I try explaining this to my mom and dad but they won’t listen. So I decided to make a plan. A flawless plan that will expose my sister as her true robot self!  

 

                                             Chapter 2 

Everything is in place. I am feeling great and ready to go! I am so excited to show my parents that I was right all along! My sister doesn’t suspect a thing. Oh! I check my watch, it’s go time! 

First, I carefully sneak over to my sister’s room. Now I stand in the doorway with a big grin on my face. Suddenly I hear a noise! Bring bring bring! My sister turns around and stares me straight in the eyes. Uh oh. I didn’t plan for this! I dash toward the bathroom and my sister follows me. But then right there in the bathroom sink is the bucket of water I filled last night! I speed up and grab the bucket. Splash! Yes! I say  a bit too loudly. My sister is really soaking and mad.then she takes off her wet sweatshirt. My eyes widened. Mom dad I called out desperately. She’s a robot! She’s a robot! Soon I heard the sound of feet coming up the stairs. Mom dad look! I called out when they were  fully up the stairs. Honey,those are your sister’s new robot pj’s my mom said. My sister grunted and went back to her room.

 

 

                                          Chapter 3 

Later I went into my sister’s room. This time I didn’t activate any alarms. Sorry, I say in a really quiet voice. My sister turns and hugs me, sorry she says to. I think i deserved to get a sorry i say out loud. My sister gives me that sister look that no one in the world can stand. Fine i say.

 I still think she’s a robot. But I will make an exception only this once. 

                                            THE END

rocks and minerals cookie experiment!

In class, we have started a new unit in class. rocks and minerals!

To start, we watched a short video about geologists. then, we did a cookie experiment!

Our task was to use 2 toothpicks to excavate the chocolate chips out of two chocolate chip cookies. the cookies were different though. one was hard and the other was soft. we also had a sheet where we wrote our predictions.

I predicted that I would find ten chips on the top of the soft cookie and four on the bottom.

In the end, my conclusion I found nine chips on the top and four on the bottom. I was off by one chocolate chip! Just one!

Innovation day project

For Innovation Day my class and I are doing a project with pulleys. Miss.M gave us three options:

  • flagpole
  • drawbridge
  • barn elevator

I chose an elevator with a  compound pulley. This means a pulley that can hold heavy stuff.

My Hypothesis was it would work great because my pulley system would be sturdy.

My conclusion was that my Hypothesis was correct.

I did need to add some improvements because at first a dried line of hot glue was blocking my elevators track so I moved my elevator and it ran more smoothly.

Helpful tips for caring for a cat!

Helpful tips for caring for a cat

                                          

                1) Preparation  

 

Before you get a cat you have to make sure that when your cat comes to live with you it will have what it needs. To do this, you will need to catify your house. Start with the basics, a food dish, a water dish, a cat tree and a scratching post. After you have got and placed those items,

You can go ahead and add some extra stuff to make your cat’s new home shine! 

 

                                                     2) Picking the right cat   

 

Picking the right cat is not as easy as it seems.first you should pick the breed of cat you want.your cat should be one that you think best suits yourself. The best place to get a cat is the animal shelter. Most of the cats there had a hard life and are waiting for a new home in a better place.                                                                                                                                                   

 

                                                   3) Getting to know your cat             

 

When you first bring your new cat home, he or she will probably be a bit scared. After a couple of days, your new cat will get more familiar with their surroundings. You can keep a journal all about your cat. In your journal you should write about what foods your cat likes and doesn’t like, what your cat’s favorite hiding place is, and some other stuff about your cat. After you are finished writing in the journal you will know a lot more about your cat!     

 

          

                                            

                                                    4) Exercise

 

 Enough exercise, in combination with a complete and balanced diet, is a vital part of their ongoing health and happiness. As well as enjoying the physical benefits of activity, your cat will also be more mentally stimulated.   

 

                                      

 

                                            

 5) food  

Food is very important for a cat. You need to make sure that  your cat has a balanced diet.

For example, you can make a schedule to tell you what foods you should feed your cat each day. 

 

                                                THAT’S THE END FOR NOW!

                         HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT! IF YOU WANT ME TO RIGHT SOME MORE 

                        YOU CAN LEAVE A COMMENT. BYE FOR NOW!

The mayan’s science and technology

 Hello, I want to tell you a bit about the Mayan’s science and Technology. The Mayan civilization used and created many pieces of technology including the calendar, chocolate, rubber, medicine, and math.

 

The first one I will share with you is the calendar. Back in the Mayan times they had more than one type of calendar. They had three calendars! On their calendars, there were some hieroglyphics that represented the date and the month. 

 

This is different to today because we don’t have three different calendars.

 

The second one is chocolate. Chocolate was first discovered by the Maya, who used it as a glue and sometimes food. The Maya didn’t use sugar and water, so the chocolate tasted bitter. Now, we add sugar and water so our chocolate tastes sweet.

 

Mayan advancements in technology tell us that they were very smart and independent.

 

We are able to learn about Mayan technology because we now have the internet.  The internet gets all this information from archaeologists. 

Beneath this, there is a picture of a Mayan chocolate mug.
