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.

We are doing a water quality project that is about our creek. We are trying to figure out if our creek is good, bad or ugly. The way we are pretty much figuring this out is if the bugs are very intolerant to water; intolerant; tolerant and very tolerant. Intolerant being insects and fish that have trouble surviving in polluted water, and ones that are just fine with it.
Are creek got a potentially good water quality score. In other words; we got tolerant. But thats a good score, so....yay!!!
