Mr. Gonzalez's Science Classes
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.

In my group, we looked at aquatic bugs under a microscope. :) After that, we started researching them. Our group found a stonefly and a scud. I like the scud. The scud looks kind of like a potato bug shrimp thing. It's grey, and really fast.The stonefly was creepy. They look like weird earwigs with anxiety. They squirm like worms.The stonefly is intolerant to water pollution, but that earned us four points, and the scud is tolerant to water pollution which gave us two more points. After that, we scored our creek. We got 21 for our creek's score, and Yellowjacket creek got 25, so Yellowjacket creek has a higher score than Chimacum creek. We gave our creek 21, because of it's quality. Chimacum creek, however, has a lower quality than Yellowjacket creek, although they came close.That's pretty much about all I have to say.
About the Blogger
I started my teaching career in South Central Los Angeles teaching in modified to full bilingual 4th and 5th grade classes. Then I moved to WA State where I have taught mainly 6th through 8th grade. I have enjoyed the culture clash but notice that kids are the same everywhere :o)
My areas of interest are science and technology but I also love studying ancient cultures and learning about different peoples and cultures.
