 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

Energy , but that's because I responded to someone but I think it's because Energy is very important and is always used . 7 Random Facts , It was the easiest but fun ! We should do blogs like that more often ! YES ! I got tired of the templates so I decided to be creative & Change the colors ! No Widgets that I know of ! Not enough ! I don't know how to check and look at that ? Article posted May 17, 2012 at 03:13 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1032
 Article posted May 16, 2012 at 03:33 PM GMT • comment • Reads 786 What I know about Friction & Force ; When we were using the block and the Spring scale the Wide side had the most Friction , So I believe that wide sides have most Friction, The Shortest side was after the Wide side and then the the Long side. 6.1 - I learned Different Surface types have different amounts of Friction . And I learned more mass something has the more Friction it has. 2- We used Spring scales to weigh a Wood block . 3- I learned there are 3 different Variables and I learned to make sure you know which one is which , Because they get confusing.

Also , We should be able to text if were done working . But if people are using their phones when their not supposed to be teachers could take them away or give them a warning ! So , I would enjoy being able to text or take pictures in class , That would be fun ! Article posted May 7, 2012 at 03:30 PM GMT • comment • Reads 1104

They hardly used any energy at all . 2 - Well insulation can be heaters , air conditioning and all kinds of things but some heaters & Air conditioning have to be plugged in . But I'm pretty sure things that are plugged in take more energy . 3 - I learned to not put your fingers in sockets because I've done it and it hurts . Also , Some things will shock you if you don't plug them in or take them out right . 4 - Trees & Oil . Article posted April 19, 2012 at 03:34 PM GMT • comment (2) • Reads 1064

First we tried a light bulb , We charged the battery for 3 minutes and the light bulb lit for about .. 10 minutes ? Then the next day we charged the dead battery for 3 minutes and attached it to a motor and the motor ran for 7 minutes . Since the motor didn't run as long as the bulb that means the motor uses more energy . Motors use mechanical energy & light bulbs use light and heat energy !

You measure D.O with a probe , you put the sensor in the water & it gives the the amount of D.O . Turbidity Turbidity is Based on how clean or dirty the water is , high turbidity can kill fish and fish start to abandon habitat and plants will die . Chimacum creeks average of turbidity is in the 30's . Ammonia Ammonia can be found in many cleaning products .Ammonia is a colorless gas & strong smelling . The formula of Ammonia is NH3, means it consists of one atom of nitrogen and three atoms of hydrogen . Nitrates Nitrogen is In the air ,and is a gas . It can cause a sickness called Methemogoblin . Plants can not use nitrates it's not good for them . N2 is 78% of air . Flow rate Flow rate is based on how fast or slow the water is going .Flow rate is measured by a probe with a propeler . Air flow rate is one other type of flow rate . Flow rates average is 1.3 cubic meters per second which is good . Temperature temperature is very important to water , if its to cold or to warm fish can die. It takes longer for deeper water to heat up because there is more water . In the summer if the temperature doesnt get over 50 degrees ferenheit then the fish will be fine . Ph Ph is Positive Hydrogen , Which is H2O . Ph ranges from 0-14 , 0-6 is Acidic , 7 is Basic (well, 7 is pure H2O, or water, and above 7 all the way to 14 is basic and alkaline because they mean the same thing. - From Mr. G) , And 8-14 is Alkaline ,Human blood is basic so about a 7.3 or 7.5 .
