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.

in our minipond and some thing that looked like paramecia but they might have been some kind of plant cell. We also found Paramecia and Amoeba in our min-pond and they are Unicellular organisms which can survive on their own without help from any other cell. But the elodea in our mini-pond is multi-cellular and they can't survive on their own they rely on other Multi-cellular organisms so they rely on each other.
This is a picture of a few chains of elodea working together to live.
This is a really cool picture, I wish we could've had this much clarity. You must have had to use a lot of light to get this.

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.
