Another Lost Ecodome and rebuild 2

So for this ecodome after the second one has failed being able to keep the cricket alive for about three days. The cause could be that the plant I used didn’t produce oxygen or the room was to cold for the cricket to handle.

Observations of ecodome:

  • no mold appearing
  • two days

Causes could be:

  • Cold temperature
  • No air to breath in

Ecodome Lost and rebuild 1

When I’m writing this my cricket died in my ecodome, cause of death probably from the heat in the jar or it couldn’t touch the water or my plant wasn’t able to produce oxygen.

I do feel bad about it but I’m planning a new ecodome

Observations of ecodome:

  • no mold appearing
  • two days
  • none
  • negative
  • cause:
  • dehydration
  • no air
  • heat from the sun

 

Ecodome Day 1

So at the time I’m writing this I just finished and sealed my ecodome with my cricket in it. Our project for science this quarter is making an ecodome to sustain life and our test subjects are crickets (I don’t like use them so I hope mine doesn’t die). There is a graph showing my  materials that I used for my dome and why I used it. There is also a photo of the ecodome.

Component Amount incl Units Reasoning
Apple Three slices The cricket can eat fresh and rotten fruit
Plant One To produce oxygen for the cricket (hopefully not to much to hurt the cricket
A bottle cap One To have water for the cricket to stay hydrated
Dirt 4 cm high To have enough for the plant to grow
Gia (cricket) A living being For the testing sadly
Position Half the window One Put the canister on the half of the window to have shade and so on

Journalism Project X 8

This year in grade 8 Language Arts we were assigned a journalism project, we have to write an article about something in our choosing. We would have to explore, survey and interview people about our topic. I chose to talk about Project X a mystery project that our school is soon to be doing, it’s about our realities.

The hardest part for me in the making of the article would be the interview I did with the creator of the project Ms. Fossgreen, there were so many details to jot down to keep up with what she was saying. My greatest achievement would probably finishing my first news article.

Debates of the Best Creation 8

This year in grade 8 Social Studies class a group of people including me had to do a debate against other people about the greatest invention ever invented. Our invention was the light  bulb and we had to that it was the greatest invention ever in the debate. So we had to do research and came up with claims and counterclaims to win against the other team.

In the making of the debate the hardest part of the debate was the research, to look up reliable sources and to cite them, my greatest achievement was finishing it.

Ending Poverty Reflection

We watched a video about poverty where a man was showing videos of people getting out of poverty. The mans name was Hans Rosling  he was a physician, academic, statistician, and public speaker. He was showing a chart of how much poverty has gone down. What was interesting that I saw was it is possible to end poverty in 15 years, the video had helped me to see what is fair and not, exactly how we have too much while people in poverty have so little, my question is that where exactly is the poverty occurring.

I also did my own time chart of child’s birth overtime.

Tutorial Video for Dragons Apprentice

Link

For the video, people in class partner up in three’s and we pick a category to teach the six graders what they should do this year to avoid entrepreneur mistakes with your teammates in the Dragon’s Apprentice. I was paired with Melody and Le Ann and we went with disagree politely, not holding up work until the last minute and listen to your teammates.

We begin off with listening with your teammates, you might not be the type to listen to people and you like going on your own, but you should listen to them you might not know what they could come up with. In the disagreeing politely if you don’t like your teammates idea even after listening to see if they actually might come up with a good idea. You say it nicely to them so they know that you don’t mean harm so then you can explain the alternative. Lastly holding up work to the last minute can be really bad if you hold up your work it can hold the entire team down because of not having your part complete.

In real life this is what the same thing we do not just for the dragons apprentice, listening to people so it will help you, disagreeing politely to people if you don’t like the idea and finish your homework early so you don’t have to panic not finishing it.

Medieval Europe Witches

In the medieval times women were be accused for being witches and they would be burned or drowned, here’s why. One, the herbs they used for healing were against Christianity, when someone gets sick it’s like being punished by god they pray to say like sorry for the saints to heal them. So when the woman were able to heal people, it was like magic and the people were afraid of magic, this was most common in Hungary and various place until 1095-1650 people were killing women who they thought were witches.

 

Second, when you are really good at healing, you get famous among people, but there will be jealous men who will accuse the women who they think are witches. The church was a respected place back then so it support the doctors who accuse the woman for being witches. The women were put into a test by soldiers where they would die both ways, they were tied to a stool and put in a river if they survive they will be burned to death because the people think witches can’t drown, but if she dies it means she was not a witch.

 

Third, their huge knowlege of herbs, this doesn’t seem harmful that much, but it was to some people some of the herbs were unknown to people and they got scared that the herbs don’t belong within the boundaries of Christianity’s rules, so the person using the herbs to heal were known as a threat.

 

In conclusion, this was why a lot of people thought women were witches.
