 Marley 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. Mr. G's Blog Mr. G's Class Facebook Page

My hypothesis was correct because 1 battery lifted 1 washer, 2 batteries lifted 4 washers and 3 batteries lifted5 washers. something would change is going slower so the washers don't fly off amd hit you in the face. I liked doing series because the washers lifted up faster! Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:20 PM GMT • comment • Reads 949

To lift more than 9 washers: Series 3 batteries Nail? 2 wires Short string/distance Complete circuit! Article posted June 11, 2012 at 08:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 941

(28 including this one) 22 are school based about what I have learned and 7 are like blog challenge ones. I have received 19 comments but most of them are my own. Hahahaha! The post that got the most comments are my 7 random facts and what I like. Probably because people don't want to read about science stuff. I like writing 7 random facts because I want people to know about me! I have changed my blog colors to make my blog look fun and. I have shared 1-3 people's blogs Article posted May 17, 2012 at 07:44 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1201

You can change the surface type, area, and the weight. In 6.1 we changed the surface type. It changes a lot! It had friction because there was contact of the block and the different surface types. In 6.2 we changed the weight by adding more blocks.it changed by very little. In 6.3 we changed what way the block was placed. It didn't change at all. Because the weight of the block and the surface type never changed. Friction is really cool! Article posted May 16, 2012 at 07:50 PM GMT • comment (1) • Reads 1097

For example like 2 sticks, or writing! Variables are a big part. Variables you can change are the surface type, weight, and the surface area. If you slid it on a ice cube it would be slippery so it would stop right away. Friction is really cool! Article posted May 11, 2012 at 08:00 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1010

Pulling rubber band and letting go is a lot of force. Weight is dependent on gravity and mass is dependednt on weight. So in conclusion, i learned weight is how much gravity forces down on you and mass is what something is made of. I leared elastic force!

We have a lot! Insilation Conserves insilition inside. It collects energy so its warmer inside. To be safe from energy you should stick things in outlets, have things plugged in when your not using them, dont put things on top of cords and have things near electrical wires. Trees give us less carbon then everything. Houses usemost carbon. Article posted April 11, 2012 at 08:13 PM GMT • comment (1) • Reads 1233

Then we learned about the salmon life cycle.then we learmed about chimacum creek and water quality. In microinvertebrates I learned that there in our creek and there is intolerant and tolerant to pollution. In salmon I learned the cycle. It starts with eggs, then alevin, then fry, then parr, then smolt, then adult, then spawning adult. For chimacum creek I was D.O. We measure D.O. by mg/L. We got a scrore of 8.125. And thats gooood! pH is good too we got a 6 which is in acidic. Turbitys average is 44.7 NTU. Nitrates average is 0.3 mg/L. Ammonium average is 1.6 but thats impossible because its really bad. Flow rates average is 1972.8. Temperatures average for water is 37.1 and the air is 44.7. Our creek is doimg really good because they are good averages. So yes, our creek is doing really good! Please dont spit, litter, or pollute our creek! It is our creek and we have to take care of it! Article posted February 28, 2012 at 09:06 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1200

We put the tree in without j-rooting it. Then we put the soil on. And we did the tug test. then we successfully planted a tree. Thank you everyone who made it possible to plant trees.

Orcas, sea lions, and seals are predators to the adult salmon. Humans also kill salmon for food. Then they go back to their birth place and start spawning.

Parr eat fish eggs, crustaceans, young fish, and worms. It's dangers are gull and other birds of prey. They need non-polluted water.

They feed mostly on zooplankton until they're big enough to eat aquatic insects. Some salmon live in the river up to three years. Some go to the river as soon as they leave their nests. Loss of habitat along streams, rivers, and bays is one of their dangers. Article posted January 6, 2012 at 09:21 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1323

Gravel they become a fry. They need fresh clean water. The need trees for shade and gravel or another substance to hide so they won't get crushed. Their threats are gulls, dippers, and sculpins.

The WATER CYCLE is reall important. If we didn't have the water cycle the world would always be dry because the SUN would keep it dry. The order is EVAPORATION, CONDENSATION, PRECIPITATION, and COLLECTION. Evaporation is when the water evaporates in the air. Condensation is when the water forms into a cloud. Precipition is when the RAIN, SNOW, or HAIL falls out of the sky. Collection is when all the water reunites together in oceans and lakes. That is what the water cycle does. TRANSPIRATION is when the water from the plants evaporates into the air. You can also call "water going into the air" water VAPOR.

 Article posted November 3, 2011 at 08:54 PM GMT • comment (1) • Reads 2020 Look at the caddisfly!  this is a stonefly larvae! My team and I found it  We are not sure if this is a mayfly or a stonefly because its legs are cut off! We got a score of 21. We got that score from finding bugs from a jar, which came from Chimacum Creek. Then we found 4 different bugs in the very tolerant then we multiplyed that by 4 and we got  16. Then we got 1 in tolerant and multiplyed that by 2 then we got 18. Then we got 3 in very tolerent and multiplyed that by 1. Then we got a total of 21. The score means we got potentially good water quality.  Yellow jacket creek got 25 points so it got potentially excellent water quality so its healthier then Chimacum creek.

Water Pollution is in our waters causing people to get diseases. Water pollution is contaminating our water everywere! Sources of water pollution- Chemical: because farmers use chemicals to hinder bug infestations or other diseases from damaging thier crops. Industrial waste: the construction industry is also at fault for contaminating the water with cement, lubricants, and plastics.Oil pollution: also oil spills are damaging our water! Oil can't dissolve in the water so it make big clumps of oil floating it the water. Marine dumping: there is also surface water pollution on lakes oceans and rivers. People litter cardboard, nespaper, foam, aluminum, and a lot of other stuff. There is also groundwater pollution. Eutrophication: groundwater pollution is often caused by pesticide contamination from the soil. This can infect our drinking water and cause huge problems. Oxygen depleting: microorganisms this live in the water feed on biodegradable substances. When too much biodegradable material is added in thewater the number of microorganisms increase and use up the available oxygen. This is called oxygen depletion. What does water pollution do to us? We can get diseases such as typoid and cholera. There is more health problems such as poor blood circulation, skin lesions, and vomiting. In fact, water pollution is said to be the leading cause of human death. To stop this from happening we should recycle paper, plastic, and glass bottles. Also we should NOT litter! It is not healthy for our water (OR planet!) If we stop littering, not use anyting with polluting dyes, or have oil spills, and we recycle, We may be able to stop water pollution!
