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.

Our hypothesis was that the snail is going to choose soil over grass because they like wet climate which snails usually come out when it is raining. Soil hold water better than grass!
For our experiment conclusion the snails ended up choosing the grass 2 out of 5 times and went to the soil 3 out of 5 times. So the snail prefer soil more than grass. We don't really know the real reason why snail would choose soil over grass because snail need food to survive. We think that maybe snail would feel like it's natural habitat because when they travel towards food they would be traveling on soil rather than grass.Our inaccuracy in this experiment is that we used different snails. The first day of our experiment we used a different snail which I chose to go towards the grass 2 times and then the next day we took another snail and it went toward the soil 3 times. So my thought is that maybe it really depends on the snails on whether or not they would prefer soil or grass.
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.
