Air masses are labeled based on two things; if the air is dry or moist and the temperature of the air. If the air mass is formed over land then it is dry and called Continental. If the air mass is formed over water then it is moist and called Maritime.

We can all make a difference :)





If we can do these 3 simple things to help the Earth, why not start now?



Reduce, Reuse, and RECYCLE!

Hydroelectric Energy is energy produced by water. The energy is produced by a hydroelectric plant, which has a generator. The generator is located in a powerhouse that is connected to power lines that give energy to houses, buildings, etc. Hydroelectric Plants do not hurt the environment.





According to the video, the United States is the fourth country with the most hydroelectric capacity in 2008. The United States will save $22 billion in oil burning if we change to hydroelectric energy.

My brother said something really weird on Saturday morning. He regretted it afterwards but, he said he wanted to go to school and didn't want to stay home. I thought it was weird because on Friday he was so glad school was over! 



I promise I didn't knock him over the head to make him say that but, he said it. My parents were surprised to because they don't like waking up for 10 min. and driving for 5 min. to school and coming back.

Don't get me started on how Astronomy was for me ! 



Astronomy was a pretty hard topic for me. 



My favorite topic in Astronomy was when we learned about the galaxies. I started to have a lot of questions about the universe and how it could be part of something else. I used to think that Earth was the biggest but, I was wrong. 



I was stuck on the seasons but, I understood it after some of my friends explained it to me. I wanted to learn more about the stars. It was an interesting topic.



 <--- Remember that stars don't really look like this !

Can you believe that 2010 is already over? If you don't believe it, you have to anyway 



2010 went by pretty quick for me ! 





During the holiday break, I didn't really do anything. My cousin from France came over to visit for 6 days and we explored New York with him. I am not much of a New Yorker until this break because I have never went to any part of Manhattan except for Chinatown. 



 Visit m&m's world, it's awesome !

Our class was learning about The Big Bang Theory the other day. I wanted to know more and I found this video:











The history channel is GREAT !


I watched it more than 2 times to understand what was really happening in the video.


Hope I'm not the only one that watched it again !

Stars can give birth to other stars?



Do the death of other stars mark the birth of another?



Check it out: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/11/101119201429.htm



1) What was the star birth sparked by?



2) What did these young stars bring to old galaxies?



3) What were long strands of dust composed of?

 Look a little like Earth?





If there can be a planet out there that can have the looks of Earth, then why can't be there be life out there that looks like us? There is a lot of places in space that we haven't looked and there can be life anywhere. The Goldilocks planet has the perfect distance away from the sun just like Earth. Life could be on that planet.

 Earth has been taking care of us since the day we were born into this world. Have we been helping her in any way?



 <--- She is trying her best to take care of us. We need to take care of her.

Have you ever heard of the Andromeda Galaxy? Let's just say it's a large galaxy that might collide into the Milky Way billions of years from now.

Hello. My name is Irene. I am in one of the 8th grade Earth Science classes. I love to play handball but, after I moved to Long Island there wasn't much time for me to play. I tried out for sports like volleyball and basketball last year. I love to play the piano, dance, sing, and listen to music. I don't like doing homework but, as a student if you don't do your homework, your grades go down. I love ice cream!
