 Alex the Awesome 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

We used blocks along with scales to primarily measure the force. The reason we had scales was to measure how much friction was slowing down, or speeding up the weight of the object.

 Article posted May 4, 2012 at 09:08 PM GMT • comment (1) • Reads 984 Since both the Avengers and Ghost Rider 2 have been released, I (being the nerd that I am) has to go on a rant on why Ghost Rider should be in the Avengers. If you don't know Ghost Rider is a anti-hero that fights evil in the form of an insane flaming demon with a awesome motorcycle and a chain that, like himself, are on fire. The Avengers are a group of other primary Marvel characters consisting of mainly Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk. My reasoning for why Ghost Rider should be in the Avengers is that Hulk, who like Ghost Rider, is a hero who turns into something of a monster and goes on a rampage. The primary reason Ghost Rider isn't the Avengers is because he has a vengeance type thing going on, and that prevents him from being in the Avengers. Hulk is in the Avengers and also has a vengance type thing going on. Why isn't Ghost Rider in the Avengers even when a great amount of his fan base would probably like him to in the Avengers? I have no idea. You could say that the Ghost Rider has a much bigger mission in which he has to defeat the devil, but there's other villians for him to defeat in order to keep him in the Marvel Universe.

 Article posted April 25, 2012 at 08:51 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1066 The point of this energy blog is to tell you 'wonderful' people on the internets about pulling a cart across the floor with a rubber band. The way you would logically do it is by connecting the rubber band to something on the cart and pull until your elastic force breaks into two non-connected pieces. The way you stop this tragedy from happening is by putting another form of force such as a paper clip or a spring scale connected to the cart and pull it as much as your special little heart desires. PART 2...(sorry for Part 2)....... I now have to explain the specific difference between weight and mass if I want to pass science and grow up to be a sucessful American filmmaker. (I know I spelled it wrong.) Anyway I went off track so lets point out the differences. Mass is, according to Apple dictionary, is a 'body of matter with no definite shape', thats what mass is, its a thing in general. No matter what kind of thing you are, you're mass. Weight on the other hand is the amount of matter that you have within yourself plus the force of gravity. Bye.... Article posted April 25, 2012 at 08:51 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1066

I already have a Youtube channel dedicated to short films and Lego animation called mortsnarg9. This is a short and late blog I made to just to get into specifics about what I want to do.

We made it out of zinc strips, copper strips, blotter paper, a grain of wheat lightbulb and something called copper sulfate solution. We assembled the the zinc strip, copper strip, blotter paper and grain of wheat lightbulb all together and put it in the copper sulfate solution. We bent the ends of the zinc and copper strips and put the the blotter strip in between and held it on with rubber bands. I remember we duct taped two little wires that were connected to the lightbulb to the two strips. We placed the assembly into the copper sulfate solution and the lightbulb lit up. When we put onto a paper napkin it flickered and then never lit up again; even when we put back in the solution. What I can conclude from this is it's not always the same effect in the same scenario.

 Article posted November 4, 2011 at 10:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 2050 We are doing a water quality project that is about our creek. We are trying to figure out if our creek is good, bad or ugly. The way we are pretty much figuring this out is if the bugs are very intolerant to water; intolerant; tolerant and very tolerant. Intolerant being insects and fish that have trouble surviving in polluted water, and ones that are just fine with it. Are creek got a potentially good water quality score. In other words; we got tolerant. But thats a good score, so....yay!!! Article posted November 4, 2011 at 10:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 2050
