 Esther! 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

The effort distance, effort force and the amount of work decreases When we use the lever.The farther we were away from the fulcrum the more all three of them increase. 2. They make are life's easier by decreasing the amount of work we have to do. 3. The motor could lift more washers using the lever than when it was lifting by itself. we moved the motor so it was opposite the sled on the other side under the lever. the motor could not lift the sled and 10 washers, so we took some off. our motor lifted 5 washers and the sled. so my conclusion is the motor lifted more washers using the simple machine, (lever), than it did by itself and it took less effort and work when using the simple machine.

The light bulb lit up, kinda dismiss. 5 The light was brighter 6. The light was bright 7. The light was really bright=http://! 4.the more weight there is on the motor the more electricity it generates. 5. The electricity is coming from the string pulling on the motor really quickly as if the motor was running. The more weight ( washers) that pulls on the string the faster it will go. The more speed the more electricity. 6. # of washers. Weight of washers Distance fell. Work 4. 1.0. 107 cm. 10.7 5. 1.5. 107 cm. 71.5 6. 1.58. 107 cm. 68 7. 2.0. 107 cm. 53.5 7. The more weight on the motor the faster it goes and the more electricity the Motor genertates 8. i think the light bulb would be waaaay brighter if the washers had a shorter distance to fall,(shorter string).More washers,stronger motor. 9. i think you should... 1) multiply the weight of the washers by the distance they fell. this is the work. 2) now divide the number you got for work by the time it took for the washers to fall. this is the power. 10. yes you can i think because you could connect the wires to the battery set up.the energy would flow up the wires and the washers would fall and the light bulb would light up.

If you used one block and slid it on ice there wouldn't be a lot of friction because the block would have nothing to grip on. if you added more blocks i think you would be adding a little bit more, because each block added is more weight pushing down on the ice.

Slang use of words is replacing the real ones.Words like "Gonna", and " "is whats becoming normal. Schools are not doing as much as they could to make sure kids know the proper language. I think knowing and using the proper English language is important. When time comes to apply for a job they will not just be judging how well you can preform in the position, they're also listening to how you talk. if you sound like you've just come off the streets, chances are you won't get the job. This is why I believe using the proper English language is important. Article posted November 23, 2012 at 05:44 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 1288

A UFO? the door flys open. in comes 9 freaky looking creatures. they all start talking at oncs but the words are all togather. they say "our names are" then they each say their names "heat" "light" "sound" electrical" "kinetic"elastic" "gravitational" "nuclear" chemical. do you know us? " i looked around the room at every one. but the were all under the tables. its not a earth quake! "take them!" electrical said. "they need to know us!" so i watched all my class mates being loaded into their space ship. so thats the reason im the only one here today! whats that you say mr g? every one else is here? never mind then......
