From today, I learned that sunlight is very important for our energy. In ecology, we can learn about several different animals and what the animals eat. Herbivores consume energy by only eating plants, and Omnivores consume energy by eating plants and animals. I also learned about the Energy Pyramid and I learned that it shows the energy available for each animal level.
I learned that the carbon cycle could be found in unliving things. For Example.. oceans, rocks, mountains and much more. I also learned that without carbon we wouldn't be able to live, and there would be no life on earth at all. All carbons has moved in several different ways, but one way is photosynthesis.
I learned that Photosynthesis self produces their energy and it is called Autotrophs. I also learned something important the sunlight makes glucose and it is called photosynthesis. Chloroplast in plant cells in where photosynthesis occur. There were more things that was important but in my opinion these three were the most important things of Photosynthesis.
Today in science we made Pangea with Duplo blocks. And the pictures under is what we made. We took two pictures because it shows how it can show that it was one land. It matches just like a puzzle and when It moves it would spread apart to different places. And when it spreads apart to different places it can make mountains, because the land that is moving would crash to another land and there would be a convergent boundary happening. The biggest example of that would be India. Between India, there is a giant mountain. The Himalaya's you might know this bit of information, but the Himalaya's is growing 5 cm a year. Which means that India is still moving! The Himalaya's got very big because India was one of the fastest continents to move than the other ones.
There were two big lands of Pangea, but the one that we made is the biggest one. There is evidence that these were all connected because all of the lands looked like puzzle pieces and the same fossils were in different places which were across almost the whole Ocean. The only way that they would be possible was if the lands were all connected. Another evidence is that there are lots of land movements which are convergent boundary which is two crusts moving into each other and one crust moving down which melts the crust and the melted crust would become magma and that magma would come out of a Volcano. There is Transform boundary which is one crust moving up and one moving down this can cause many earthquakes. The last plate boundary would be the divergent boundary. This is two crusts (lands) moving away from each other. The plate boundary can be an evidence because the crust is moving which could make lands move away from each other.
In class, we made slogans for our product that we have made. Our team name is called the rush and our product is paper roll pencil case with lots of cool designs. We will have a phone holder attached to our paper roll pencil holders, so I made a slogan for our product.
*It can be what it is
*Make it your way
*Try the new
*The rush is going places
If you read this post then you can vote for the best one you think it is.
*What did you know about these forms of government BEFORE we started this unit?
To be honest I didn't know a lot about these forms of governments before this unit I learned it while doing this unit, so everything I learned in this unit was all new and New information.
*Why is it important to learn about forms of government?
It is important to learn the forms of government, so that we could know the history of the government and we would know what kind of forms of governments in the past and some now.
*Which form of government do you think works best & why?
I think that Democracy works best, becuase democracy moves fairly with citizen's opinions and use some of the opinions for their own countries for their country.
Why not mummify fruits with house ingredients? Well it was fun making it fun and very enjoyable! The ingredients were 'Baking soda' and also 'Salt' we put it in a plastic bag. Then we put the fruits in the bag for about a week. We went to a field trip for the week, so after the field trip. We came back and got the fruits out and the fruits were all dried!! It smelled very strong, but it was still very fun mummifying the fruits.
Why we mummified fruits was, because we learned about Ancient Egypt and mummifying bodies, so instead of mummifying bodies we mummified fruits!
The three favorite activities I liked in Social Studies were. Mummifying the fruits, because it was really fun and a new experience. It was fun doing the 'See, Thing, Wonder', because we had to look at pictures and some of the pictures were really funny, so that is the second activity that I really liked. The last third activity that I really enjoyed was the wheel of fate we used the wheel of fate, so we could choose who will read which paragraph and it was very fun using the whee of fate!
- What did I learn about GEOGRAPHY & EARLY HUMAN SETTLEMENT from this project?
I learned that water was very important to people in Egypt and they needed water for lots of usage.
- What am I proud of most in my project?
I am very proud that I tried my best for this project and I finished it very well for this project. I tried to make my world look like Canaan.
- What would I do differently if I were to do this project again?
I would open minecraft everyday, finish my world and screencast my world as soon as possible.
- In what area do you feel successful in math?
I feel successful when I am getting hard questions right.
- In what areas are you unhappy with your progress?
I am unhappy with my negative progress, because I am not good at it.
- What goals can you set for next quarter?
I want to set a goal to do at least 10 or 15 topics after school
