Science Cell Stuff
In science we are learning about cells. We used microscopes and we looked at different types of cells in it. Some cells we looked at were: animal, plant, and protest. We also took the DNA out of strawberries. That was really fun but for me it was REALLY gross!!! How we took the DNA out of strawberries was we took a strawberry. Put it in a plastic Ziplock baggie with a little bit of water and smashed it. Then, we got just the liquid parts out and we put soap in it. After that, we stirred the soap and strawberry “juice” together. Then you took some cold alcohol and put it in with the soapy strawberry “juice” and we had to make sure that the alcohol was put in VERY slowly so it wouldn’t just mix together. Lastly, we watched the DNA float up and we took it out with an eye dropper thing. We ended up putting it in a plastic cup in the sunlight so it would evaporate and Mrs. Kosters said that we would do something with it later. One other thing we did was take a test on cells. That is about all we did in the past few weeks in science class.

I write almost everyday, and would never give it up. My latest story so far that I'm working on is going to be called Wanderer, but it is not even close to being finished and once it is, i still will have to edit it. I have won a novel contest, which I am so excited about because then all i have to do is edit the novel, find an editor and get it published. I hope to grow up to be an author. I like homework and school, but I do not like the stress of it all, which i find kinda strange. I do not work well in groups, all my teachers and close friends know this fact quite well. My nickname in a Manga club that I joined, located at the East Pikes Peak library, is Silence which fits me pretty well.
