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.

We found the Mossman! He exists!! Background story: At the end of May, on our 8th grade week-long Odyssey field trip, we were taking our school bus to the Hoh Rain Forest. On the way there I saw what I could only describe as a Mossman. I told our bus driver and on the way back to the camp where we were all staying, Camp David Jr., we kept our eyes fixed on the side of the road where I first spotted the Mossman to no avail (well, those of us not driving did most of the looking). Then today driving to the Sol Duc Hot Springs with my family I see Mossman! I made my wife turn around and stop long enough to snap these shots of Mossman. Now here's the weird thing. The road to Sol Duc is not the same road we took to the Hoh so there are more than one Mossman in the Olympic National Parks!! There must be a whole tribe of Moss people!! At least now I know I wasn't crazy and I really did see Mossman.

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.
