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 i know:
They have shells
They have been around scince the same time as the dinosaur
There are freashwater, saltwater, and land snails
They have both sprem and eggs and when reproducing both snails get preago and lay eggs ( animal plant has videos of this... Its weird.)
They are prenocturnal witch means they prefer night but do come out in the daylight occasionly
They burn in salt
And leave slime trails so they dont get lost
You can eat them ( BUT DONT!!! Eww...)
And they carry bacteria i think...
I would like to know:

Why there so weird
What those eye ball thing are... And why there so fun to poke!
If i was right about what i know
What they taste like
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.
