 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

Well it all started when two rivals is the state of Washington. The rivals are the University of Washington ( UW or Udub for short ) and Washington Sate University ( WSU or Wazoo for short ). Now the mascots for the teams are the Huskies ( UW ) and the Cougars ( WSU ). Now since there rivals they decided to make it more fun so each year they have the Apple cup which is when they play a football match at each others stadium last year it was at WSU this year it's the Huskie Stadium at UW and the winning team gets this trophy. The reason it's called the Apple Cup is because Washington State is famous for it's apples our state fruit. Anyway my money is on the UW Huskies but I have a friend who's more of a WSU fan so this is going to be interesting so are you a WSU or UW fan? So I got nothing else to say but GO HUSKIES=http:// Article posted November 20, 2013 at 05:17 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 72

What we did is that we put different things in thease beaker things ( yes I know I said thing.) and labeled it in alphabetical order from A to E then we have 3 groups of different teams gets a certain liquid. Liquids 1 2 and 3. Mr. G. Didn't tell us what the liquid and substances is until the end of the experiment. Heres what the liquids where. Liquid 1: salt what ( teams1-4 ) Liquid 2: sugar water ( teams 5-8) Liquid 3: just plain old water ( teams 9-12) Now here's what's in the beakers and the answer to if they where alive or not and what happened in each liquid. A: red sand (non living) so it didn't do anything in any liquid B: yeast ( no evidence of life in any liquid so I'm still fuzzy on this one). C: Polyacrylate crystals A.K.A. Orbeez ( they grew but crystals can't be living in any liquid bu grew most in liquid 3.) D: radish seeds ( its oviouse that it's alive it grew in only liquid 3). E: brine shrimp A.K.A sea monkeys ( alive of course but only hached and swam around in liquid 1.) Article posted October 31, 2013 at 05:30 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 61

Flowers 2. Potatoes 3. Bunnies 4. People 5. Trees 6. Cows 7. Dogs 8. Salmon 9. Grass 10. Apples ( not the iPad ) But that's only a handful of living things don't worry there's more. Now here's what's non living. 1. Rocks ( but that doesn't mean you can't keep it as a pet.) 2. Mountains 3. Chairs 4. Minerals 5. Sand 6. Paper ( it's made out of a living thing but isn't living) 7. Houses 8. Tables 9. Peanut butter 10. Bacon ( was living) In order for something to be living it needs to have theses characteristics. 1. Cells 2. Food 3. Moves with a purpose 4. Responds to danger and/ or attacks prey 5. Breathes air or water 6. Water 7. DNA If the object doesn't have these characteristics then it isn't living. This information is what we learned in a lab in class. Article posted October 29, 2013 at 04:49 PM GMT0 • comment (2) • Reads 59

Vacccines are taken by injection, by mouth, or nasal spray. Your body develops antibodies that immulizes your body. Vaccines can protect you from diseases but it's not a cure. This information is founded in our life science textbooks. Article posted October 24, 2013 at 05:14 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 80

The food chain is necessary to all living things in order to survive.it starts with producers which are the plants they make there own food.Next comes the herbivores those are the animals that eat the plants.then there's carnivores these are the animals that eat the herbivores but some carnivores such as the killer wake eat other carnivores. The scavengers such as the fox or hyena they eat the scaps or the leftover carcass of the carnivore.
