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 we learned.
In science we learned about energy and batteries. We also learned what happens when you charge a battery and when you put batteries in things like TV remotes. When you charge a battery electrical energy comes from the outlet in the wall and into the charger. But when it goes into the charger it turnes into stored chemical energy then goes into the battery. When you plug a battery into something the stored chemical energy from the battery turns into electrical energy and goes through the wires and into the thing you are powering and turns it on.
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.
