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.

What happens to the energy in a battery when its getting charged and other stuff like that that i am supposed to write about.
Well, first you insert the battery into the charger and you plug it in and electrical energy goes into the battery and turns into stored chemical energy. Then when you hook the battery up to the light as it runs through the wires it becomes electrical energy again and as it enters the light it becomes light energy and heat energy. When you hook it up to the motor it does the same thing except it turns into mechanical energy instead of light and heat energy.

I think that this an over all great blog post. It was easy to understand what was going on because you described what was happening(changing the kinds of energy)as you went through the steps. The part that I thought was best was when you compared the light bulb and the motor.

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.
