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.

THE WORLD IS AT RISK!
"Water is one of the most important resources we have." (thanks to water webquest) People can survie weeks wihout eating food, but without water we would day in just a couple of days. Water is used for many sports such as swimming, boating, and fishing. Despite our dependenceon water we use it as a dumping source,nd do very very litte to protect the little water supplies we have. Water pollution ruins our lakes, rivers, and oceans! Water is called polluted when stuff like chemicals in it. Humans have the most dependence on our water resources, we also have the ability to control water pollution. When heavy metals filter into the water , it is really bad for water life. Humans are affected bt the heavy matals ingested by the fish and shellfish, causeing health problems and sometimes you die. The affects of water pollution are farreaching and affect not only the environment, but human beings and animals as well. Water pollution is stuff in the water that isn't supposed to like poop, garbage. Some sources of water pollution is farmers because they use poop and fertilizer that works it way down to the water and ships cause they can leak oil. A consequences of water pollution is fish dyeing!A thing that can be done to improve the quality of water after it has become polluted is water treatment plants. actions that can be done to help prevent water from being polluted is farmers trying to use less poop and fertilizer and people throwing trash away instead of throwing it on the ground.
We learned a lot of the same things about water like pollution last year in science. I also consider you awesome because one of my best friends is also named Bradyn.

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.
