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.

here's some info about the Water Cycle. the suns warmth causes the water from streams, lakes, ice and soils turn in to water vapor it goes into the air. Almost all of the precipitated water (80 percent). It goes right back to the air because of the evaporation. The rest of the water runs off the land or it soaks into the ground to become ground water. For every inch of the water that seeps in to the ground. Plants get rid of waste by giving off water vapor. And that happens through tiny pores int he leaves. Condensation is the opposite of evaporation. When water vapor is in the air condenses from a gas, back into a liquid and the leaves returns to the surface. Evaporation is also when the sun heats the water in lakes or the ocean.
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.
