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.

Who will win??!!
Okay, Yellow Jacket creeks Score on how clean it is.It got 25 points. Our score (Chimacum creek) Got 21 points, I know bummer right? But don't worry how clean our creek is going up all the time. Both of the creeks put up quite a fight the scores were very close as you can see.
The scoring criteria is easy to understand. First,each group got together and started to plug in microscopes to the computers,We used a program called "Mixscope" so we could see all of the tiniest parts on the computer screen.We took twissors and tried to find bugs in the little samples Mr.G provided for us.Then,we took snapshots of the bugs in the water.Everyone tried to identifie each bug.Also we added up the total score of our bugs. If you red my last blog you will understand how we scored them thanks for reading my blog.
Great information to know. Our 8th grade class has been using the microscopes looking at cells and organisms! Its pretty fun! well anyways keep enjoying science:)
