    Day 21 Ecodome

    Posted by on Dec 14, 2016 in Grade 8, Science 8 | 0 comments

    Day 21 Observations When we checked to see if our two crickets survived and when we opened the ecodome it was very warm inside which was very interesting. We only found one cricket body, but the other cricket was no where to be seen we thought that it was decomposed which is why there was no trace of the second cricket. My partner and I thought that the two crickets died of starvation since there was one body that was still whole and the other cricket that starved was decomposed. We also checked the surface and it looked like the roots from the plants actually settled into the ground and the roots started to grow this shows a very good sign as it means that it could produce oxygen for the crickets. The surface also had water as well that didn’t go in the dirt, it was just flowing around the ecodome. On the plants we saw there was mold growing on them and at the moment we could not tell if that was a good sign or a bad sign. The quality of the ecodome was better than the last two as our plans to grow the roots worked. Changes Made For our next ecodome my partner and I decided that we should remove the...

    Ecodome Day 9

    Posted by on Dec 14, 2016 in Grade 8, Science 8 | 0 comments

    Day 9   Quantitative For our ecodome my partner and I observed that there was too much water in our ecodome which made the dirt very slippery and it gave the crickets a higher chance to slip into the holes of the ecodome. Since the crickets had a very wet surface with many holes it could fall into it had a high chance of dying. Qualitative The quality of the ecodome is decent, but could use a lot more work. The places where we put the rocks for our crickets were poorly placed and it blocked passages the crickets use to walk through. With the picture on the right we wanted to have a good and stable surface for the crickets, but we made a mistake and the surface gained a lot of holes. Sadly our crickets tried to escape using the wall, but at the time there was water dripping down which made it very slipperly and hard for the crickets to climb. After the cricket failed to escape it slid down into the hole where it stayed there and died. Survival Our crickets survival wasn’t a very strong one as they both died in the ground of the ecodome. I was thinking that our crickets could last up to about a day until...

      Observations of ecodome: Quantitative For our ecodome my partner and I saw that there was too much water in our ecodome which made the dirt very moist. It seemed like there was a flood that was the main reason why our crickets died. The source of food was also very poor as we only had one plant to feed two crickets. Qualitative The quality of the ecodome is sort of what we imagined, but could use a lot more...

    Ecodome Day 1

    Posted by on Nov 7, 2016 in Grade 8, Science 8 | 0 comments

    A lot of soil (Grass Soil) My partner and I chose to use grass soil as it gives the crickets a good moving surface and its also an easy material to work with. We will also try to grow roots inside of the dirt so then the plant can produce oxygen for the crickets to breath in. 3 to 4 plants This gives the cricket food and it can grow from the soil if it receives enough treatment. Also...

    What did you do? Good/bad?   I feel like I did a very good job at using the quotes I had in my possesion as I used them in the right moment as it really helps sooth the writing, and I kept things really simple I used vocabulary that middle schoolers can understand as that is my target for the audience. I feel I also gave a great level of detail with the three teams as I also backed...

    Research Process  I feel like I had a huge success when it came to making research I found a lot of solid information when I was researching, but sometimes I found some information that seemed a bit sketchy and it looked like I couldn’t trust it. I also had trouble when I was getting the cites since Easybib sometimes doesn’t want to do it’s job so I had to use another website called son of a citation. When I was...
