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.

How we scored our creek and what we found
How we scored our creek is: we compared yellow jacket creek with Chimacum creek by what kind of bugs and how tolerant they are in both creeks. We got a lot of scuds,maybe like 4-5 in each jar. We got 6-7 cadissflys in each jar. One way we scored our creek VS yelowjacket creek is we added up all the bugs we got and then did some math with it and got 3 different kinds of very tolerant bugs and 2 different kinds of bugs in tolerant and 16 in very intolerant. That is a way we scored our creek and 0 in intolerant. The bugs are tolerant,very tolerant,intolerant,and very intolerant to the water quality and the water pollution in the creek. That is what I have about how we scored our creek!!!
