This week and a few before we have worked on solar cars. A solar car is a solar panel attach to a motor on a base. we got to decorate it as well. how it works is the solar panel is attached to two wires that you have to clip on to the wires that are on the motor. when it sees/hits sunlight it will move. If you didn’t space the wood and stuff properly it will not go.
Who discovered solar panels?
When did solar panels become a thing?
Where were the made/founded?
Hi this is my first blog of this year!! This week was….. LOC! This year we spent two nights and this year I did the high ropes course. while I was doing the ropes course I was so so so scared. the post felt like the where swaying, you had to clip yourself in to like change it and it looked a bit old and rickety. I did have fun. I did cry. and I do want to go back! We played a game called protect the fort and you had to go through training and the protect the fort. No one person was the leader. Everybody was included and I hope every body had fun!
When was LOC made?.
Who made LOC?
Are the consolers names real?
This year was the…BEST YEAR EVER! In science at least ;). My favorite lab we did was figuring out who wrote the “sporking cat” note. What I liked about it was how you could see the colored ink move from the reaction. My least favorite lab was… none I liked them all! The most interesting topic was the ocean and how it is suffering, not that suffering is fun or anything but what is really happening in the word. It was really interesting to watch some videos on the ocean to get a better under standing. I also really liked the biomes. I liked to learn about different places and biomes to know that there is more then just city a country. there is a whole other world like the dessert, rainforest and a whole ocean!
I wish we spent more time on owl pellets just because there is still a lot I don’t know about owl pellets. How do they form? How long do they take to form? What is an owl pellet? Is an owl the only bird that has pellets? I also wish we spent more time on plankton! We did spend a lot of time on it but I thought it was so fascinating! I thought it was so cool how you can’t even see them but then how do they eat? I also wished we spent more time on elements but we also spent a lot of time on them this year. I wish we learn a lot more then 11 elements but 11 is a lot. I wish we learned about animals and there origins, that sounds crazy but cool! Science helped me out with learning what is pretty on the out side is ugly on the out side. Like invasive species. Look Out!
I HOPED YOU ENJOYED ALL MY BLOGS!
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
This week was really chill besides Heaven. A bird hit a window,broke his neck and died. We named the yellow baby bird heaven,hoping he or she would go to heaven. With a name like that he/she has to be! My class and I found a out of the way place in the woods to barry our dead friend at. We got to hold the bird and its neck was so lose. The bird was soft. The bird was gorgeous with its yellow wings. My class dug a for Heaven and said our last good byes. We had flowers we put on it to show our respect. I miss Heaven and it hasn’t even been a week. I not really sure what kind of bird Heaven is other than a yellow bird.
This week we sifted compost with the kindergarten. I found 20 worms and 50 peanuts. We took these big sifting blocks and got shovels and we would load it into a wheel barrow and later but it in buckets. We had to put it in a bucket and bring it up with a partner and the buckets were supper heavy. My class got to dip our heads in Cedar lake! My hair looked super bad and I had a track meet.
Why were there so many peanuts?
What is the importance of the worms?
What is the easiest thing do decompose?
This week… was TAPESTRY!!! Now you might be thinking, what is tapestry, well Prek-8 does a big performance for anybody who comes. This year the theme was Sports Game Show.

This week we did an ultimate tornado drill simulation with fake blood, a lot of makeup, a firetruck, fire people and most important acting skills! Coach,Miss Pittions and three of my friends. I was covered in cold,sticky blood. It was all in my hair! Mostly because I was rolling around. It was so funny because coach was saying…” I hope track isn’t canceled!!!!!!!” Miss Pittions was banging a trash can against the door. When the firemen came in they had the brightest and biggest flashlights. The firemen put me in a stretcher and it was so FUN!

You might think its a big animal like a Hippo , Elephant or Lion but actually it is a mosquito! You might think ” oh thats not the most dangerous!” But a mosquito carries diseases from one human to another or one animal to another. Once the mosquito killed 2.3 million people from spreading malaria! But don’t worry the chance of you getting it from a mosquito is 40% chance not as likely today. Just carry some bug spray with you!.
What is the oceans most dangerous animal?
What is earths least dangerous animal?
What part of the human body is the mosquitos favorite?
What would happen if you don’t sleep? The first day you don’t sleep you would be alright… in the morning. But you brain wouldn’t act normal because I can’t recharge and shut down. But your brain produces a chemical called dopamine you you still have a bit of energy. Now you brain is going to shut down its prefrontal cortex which controls your reflexes, impulses and decision making . On the second day you should start do have dark spots under your eyes giving you the appearance of a zombie or really really ill. Your immune system can’t function well without sleep so you have more chances of getting a cold or a flu. Day three without sleep is were things take a turn for the worst. You will start imaging things. Without sleep you could die from exhaustion! But if you don’t sleep for awhile, all you need to recharge is twelve hours of sleep.
= get sleep!!!!!
What is the best sleeping temperature?
What Is the most hours that we are able to sleep?
How did Sleep get its name?
I took a trip to a place with crystal caves and I am going to talk about It. In the caves it was wet and cold. The reason it was wet is because when it rains it seeps through the limestone (top part) forming the stalactites. It takes 75 years for it to grow 1 centimeter. ( thats along time ). The stalactites will drip with water and that means it is still growing. Now when stalactites drip on the ground they form the stalagmites (which are on the bottom). When they are dried the crystals are really really sparkly. It looked like glitter! This Is where I went!!!
