Mr. Gonzalez's Science Classes
We have three 6th grade Science classes and two 8th grade Science classes blogging here from the Pacific Northwest in Chimacum, WA! Sixth graders are learning a bit about Mt Saint Helens, environmental science through fresh water ecology, and physical science this year. Eighth graders are learning about life science this year. Please join us as we learn Science by exploring our world.

Instructions for putting an image on your Blog's Control Panel:
First, you need to create an avatar (see my list of avatar websites) or take a picture of yourself or use a picture of yourself. (Only upload a photo of yourself if you have permission to publish your photos online. Ask you parents if you don't remember what they circled on your Informed Consent Agreement.)
Use PicGhost or Picnik to resize your image (thumbnail size might work but avatar size is the best).
Picnik might be easier than PicGhost so try that one first. If you use PicGhost then go on the next step otherwise go to Step 10.
PicGhost requires that you have an account to download your resized image. If you can't do that, then keep going...
Take a screen shot of your image (Shift, Apple - or Command - 4). Your image will be a .png file on your desktop.
Use Online-Convert to turn your .png file into a .gif file that will work on your ClassBlogmeister blog.
From the Image Converter section choose Convert to GIF from the drop down menu.
Click on Browse to choose your image from the desktop (or where ever your file is - documents on PC's most likely).
Then click on the Convert File button to start the conversion.
Download the new file and upload that .gif file from the Control Panel of your blog!
About the Blogger
I started my teaching career in South Central Los Angeles teaching in modified to full bilingual 4th and 5th grade classes. Then I moved to WA State where I have taught mainly 6th through 8th grade. I have enjoyed the culture clash but notice that kids are the same everywhere :o)
My areas of interest are science and technology but I also love studying ancient cultures and learning about different peoples and cultures.
