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.

turbidity is the study of the cloudiness and clearness of water.we check for it because if the water is cloudy,it could be toxins,or acids floating in the water!!!The acids or toxins can effect the water by poisening fish and plants.if it is dead plants in the water,it can block the sunlight from coming in then it would make the living plants sick...we used this little machine and you get a small glass bottle of the creek water (or any water) and you put it in.you hook it up to a labquest and then it will show you the level of cloudiness in the water sample.!!! will finish later!!!!
