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.

Sixth graders got to look for benthic macroinvertebrates (underwater bugs) in samples of Chimacum Creek water brought to us by the North Olympic Salmon Coalition. We used a macroinvertebrate water quality scoring system to figure out what the water quality of our creek is like and here's what we got:

Mr.G! i'm not allowed to sign up for websites! my dad would kill me! he doesn't like me having a blog, even if it's for school. pimpmyspace.org is ok for now, but it doesn't have the right pictures for me sometimes and it's the only website that i know of that allows me to use it's pictures. oh, and there is a way you can change it to where you are notified on the comments. my teacher did it.

it's still pretty fuzzy. if i just want to post a picture i took would i have to, like, put them on a website first and then post them, or could i just post them?

i meant, how do you post pictures that you took your own, but videos would be helpful! anyway, i need to know how to post pictures that i took on my own or saved. i tried to paste them, but they wouldn't show up. it made me really mad, so i used different ones from a website called pimpmyspace.org and used those. they did give permission to use them. it said at the bottom Click to select, right-click to copy, paste it anywhere and my mom said that meant i could use the pictures. what do you think?

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.
