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 2010 we use loads more energy than we used to use. We don't have enough trees to absorb the carbon dioxide that the houses emit.
Insulation conserves energy by keeping heat/cold inside so you don't have to use a heater or AC.
I learned to be safe with energy to keep the electrical sockets enclosed. I learned to stay away from electricity when you have water.
Fuels like gasoline pollute the earth. But fuels like vegetable oil fuel don't pollute the earth.
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.
