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 our class we have done a project that could have endangered us all. We were dealing with organisms that could've killed us if we were unsafe and did not get treated if infected. Now you're probably wondering what were these eigth graders doing? We were observing the bacteria in our school. Another objective was figuring out where was the most dirty place in our school. Out of the four locations we swabbed (sink, water fountain, ceiling, and urinal) we found that the urnal contains the most bacteria. The next location was the water fountain, following the sink, and after that the ceiling. I conclude that there is indeed bacteria in our school and depending on the location there can be millions.
