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 environment effects the organisms because each one has a different environment they live in. In the experiment we had 5 vials filled with things and liquid. We had liquid 2 it was tap water, Vial A had red sand, Vial B had yeast, vial C had polyacrylate a.k.a. "orbies" a new children toy. vial D had radish seed and vial E had brine shrimp. If you put an organism in a different place it will take it a while to adapt or it might even die. The brine shrimp died and molded in ours. Some living things might have appeared non-living (like yeast) doesn't mean they were tho. They were most Likely taking a little slower to grow. The yeast was taking longer to grow so we didn't find out until the next day that it was breathing.
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.
