MY BLOG

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.

We will measure how many times a snail goes for a specific food namely 4 trials for each snail. Record which food the snail goes for. Candy, hot dog, lettuce, cheese, cardboard . Prediction: Snails will prefer lettuce. Step 1: Set up Cardboard x-shape Step 2: Get cardboard wet Step 3: Place foods in 4 sections of x Step 4: Make data table. Step 5: Place first in center. Step 6: Record results for trial 1 Step 7: Repeat for snail 1 three more times and then do 4 trials with second snail. Make sure to record data. Step 8: Report findings on blog Article posted May 2, 2012 at 05:21 PM GMT • comment • Reads 854

One will be in the dark 22 hours a day. another one 24 hours of light a day and the last one 12 hours light and dark. I will record growth for a week.

I predicted that There would more bacteria We got from the toilet. I was corrected. The evidence for this is that the most colnies and the largest we located here. We had one area or fault in preparation and that was we cracked the augor which was a nuitriet derived from soy. We observed after preparation 24 hours later and 48hours. Only the toilet, water fountain and sink and colneis. The sink Had no evidence of bacteria. Bacteria is every where. I wonder if we had observed for a longer time if the bacteria would continue to grow. Article posted February 3, 2012 at 06:12 PM GMT • comment • Reads 963

On a larger scale the earths temperature over the last 65 million years ago, rose, then decreased sharply very sharply.then stayed roughly constant. Then rose sharply and decreased again.(as shown in Fig 1 &  2) On a way larger scale of 540 million years has risen and fallen while going though Glacial Periods and high temperatures. Note: about 150 years ago there was a rise in temperature, although this about the first recorded controlled use of fire I do not believe these two events are connected. (I was joking there) My opinion is that rate of warmth may have been accelerated but i do not believe there is enough recent data to show so. What the Carbon dioxide is doing is causing Ocean Acidification. Ocean Acidification is the name given to the ongoing increase in the pH and increase  in acidity of the earths oceans caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide is the atmosphere. Usually when the carbon molecules in the air in increase by 4 one will diffuse into the seawater. mean about one quarter of carbon dioxide in the Earths atmosphere ends up in the oceans. This increased amount of carbon messes up the chemistry of marine organisms. In shellfish this messes up the chemistry of their shells. The carbon bonds with the calcium and creates CaCo3    which when in highly acidic waters dissolves. This means do to carbon dioxide the water become more acidic. This carbon is adsorbed by the shellfish and there shells become weaker. Long story short that's very bad. Fig 1 fig 2 fig3 Article posted September 29, 2011 at 04:38 AM GMT • comment • Reads 1900
