scientist in school

Hi last week we had scientist in the school! We did fun experiments like make small chemical explosions and make purple turn into a piney red color, we also made a liquid with water and red cabbage powder and it smelled really bad. These are the ingredients we used for the experiments, red cabbage powder, baking soda, Epsom salt, flour, vitamin c and water. We did  experiments to find out what was in the misery powder. First we put it in water to see if it would turn into a liquid goop like when we put the flour into water and it made a liquid goopy type of thing and we also looked if it sunk to the bottom like the mystery powder. Then we mixed the mystery powder with some vitamin c powder and cabbage water to see if it would erupt like the baking soda and the vitamin c powder mixed together and we added cabigge water. It did erupt and it did sink to the bottom for the flour test. So we figured out it was flour and baking soda!

two of the same (my two paragraphs)

Hi today I will be talking about my two paragraphs. You may be thinking what two paragraphs well it’s my       1. mask paragraph   and my 2. Minecraft paragraph . So in english class we had to write two paragraphs about two different things that my teacher found in the news in two different  articles. So we all had to write a paragraph about masks and Minecraft. We all wrote about the same two articles but we all wrote about them differently and with our own opinions. I feel like I did a better job on my Minecraft paragraph than I did on my mask paragraph because I explained  my thoughts a lot more. In my minecraft paragraph I used a better hook and also used a better introductory sentence. I also feel like I also didn’t do such a good job in the end few sentences in my Minecraft paragraph because I feel like I rushed through them. Also near the end of my Minecraft paragraph I feel like I didn’t use as many transition words as I could have.  So just a quick recap of why I feel like I did a better job on my Minecraft paragraph then my mask paragraph. 

  1. I used more transition words
  2. I used a good hook
  3. I had a good introduction sentence 
  4. I expand my thoughts more

So that’s why I feel like I did a better job at my Minecraft paragraph. Thank you. the end!!!

Minecraft paragraph

What? You don’t know what Minecraft is? Then I’m going to tell you why it’s a great tool in education. To begin with, it gives kids a break. What I mean is that you get to play a video game but you still have to learn how to play, build different stuff, play with your friends, and learn science. Secondly, on the education side of Minecraft, you can learn more science. For example, you can make a balloon out of latex and helium. Although I don’t know a lot about the education side of Minecraft, I know you can still build more. You can also get rare blocks and get all sorts of other cool things. Coding is a good thing in Minecraft but it is also good in the real world. It is a good life skill, it is a good thing to know in science too. Yes, Minecraft is a great site but it should not be used all day because it’s the teacher’s job to teach us, and we also should not be on our devices all day. Therefore, Minecraft is perfect to teach us cool things and to help us learn but it should not be used all day at school.

Omelette recipe made by Georgia

Hi I’m Georgia, I love to cook and bake. These are some of my recipes that I have thought of and I’m going to make a recipe every 1 or 2 weeks. 

Omelette recipe:

 Made by Georgias 

 For the recipe we need: 

3 eggs 

Just a little milk or cream (around 2 Tablespoons Tbsp)

5-10 cracks of black pepper 

Salt (you do how much you want) 

1 Tbsp of chopped chives 

1 small tomato cut into small round circles 

1 or ½  small red-orange or yellow pepper (diced)

Black olives (2-3 Tbsp) 

Cheddar cheese ( shredded) 

½ of a small onion 

One cutting board 

A knife

2 or 3 bowls 

A fork for mixing                                                                                                                                                    

Stuff we need to do for omelet : 

 First chop the onion, tomato, pepper ( red-orange or yellow) chives, and cheese if you have to shred it. Then you want to crack the 3 eggs into a bowl mix with a fork. Then add the milk salt and black pepper and chives to a bowl with the eggs.  Heat a pan at 2-4-6 (that is the temperature) with some butter.  Then put the egg mixture into the hot pan with the butter melted. do not mix! The eggs. Let the eggs sit in the pan for about 20 seconds. Then with a spatula just pull the eggs at a side up and then tilt the raw egg into that spot (you only have to do it once or twice). Now the egg only on the bottom should be cooked, not the top of the egg! Now add all the ingredients to the middle of the egg cheese, onion, red-orange or yellow pepper, tomato, and whatever else you want. Finally flip it so it looks like a toco, and flip side to side if you want it to be cooked more. (MY OWN RECIPE) (Georgia)

Mask Paragraph

Why it’s more important to wear a mask than it is to not wear one? 

        It’s better and safer to wear a mask then it is to not. Here’s why most people don’t like wearing masks? First, it can be itchy, expensive, uncomfortable, hides facial expression, fogs up glasses, is deftly hard to breathe in and you most likely need more than one in a day and these are the ones that i know. The reasons I don’t like wearing a mask are it is  very uncomfortable, it fogs my glasses and is hard to breathe in. But, it also has its perks. You get to see your friends,  it protects you from all dangerous germs. It keeps you safe from Covid 19 and a lot more. Masks may be uncomfortable but they keep you safe and that’s why you should always wear them.

תיקון עולם

 You know when you go on a bike ride and you see the smoke coming out of a car. That is air pollution. It is bad for the earth.  

 

אתה יודע שאתה יוצא לרכיבה על אופניים ואתה רואה את העשן יוצא ממכונית. 

זה זיהום אוויר. זה רע לכדור הארץ.

 

To help make the world a better place we should start walking more, bike more, crapol with friends and family so you do not use as much gas,use the bus, get an electric car (rather than a gas car) and a lot more. 

 

כדי לעזור להפוך את העולם למקום טוב יותר אנחנו צריכים להתחיל ללכת יותר אופניים crapol יותר עם חברים ובני משפחה כך שאתה לא משתמש כל כך הרבה גז להשתמש באוטובוס לקבל מכונית חשמלית ולא מכונית דלק ועוד הרבה יותר.

 Why making your own food is healthier for you 

 Hello Mrs. Bennett and fellow classmates.

 Hi my name is Georgia. If you know me. you would know I love to make all sorts of food like soups, salads, cupcakes and more.  I’m going to talk to you about why making your own food is healthier for you! Have you ever read the ingredients on the back of any packaged food that you have bought at the store? Well the label on the back is called a nutrition label. You know how some of the ingredients are weird and you don’t know what some of them are?  Like there is an additive in cereal called trisodium phosphate. It is safe if you eat small amounts of it. But If you eat too much, it can be harmful because it can cause kidney disease and or heart conditions. Not only is cooking your own food a great activity, it helps you learn new life skills, you know exactly what ingredients are in your food and I am going to tell you all about this.

 I love to cook for my friends and family. For me it is a fun activity and is good for my mental health. When I am cooking my mind is happy and calm. It’s a good break from my wild brothers. When I cook I create and make food art. For me it’s like an art class except instead of paint it can be icing, chocolate or cake batter to name a few,You can also have fun with friends on a playdate virtually or in person by doing baking challenges with the same recipe. Using my creative mind I decorate with cool techniques that I find on Youtube, cooking books and cooking and baking shows. Cooking in your spare time can help with your mental health or mood because cooking and baking can make you happy. Especially when you get to see the end results. It’s an even better feeling to get to share your food with friends and family for them to enjoy too.  

learning new life skills (learning brain health)

When you bake you can learn life long skills. I have learned how to make a fondant flower. It took a lot of patience and some practice to get it right. Following instructions is also a big part of baking because if you are making Fondant and you do not do it correctly it can become very hard, it may crack and not be shapeable. It can also sometimes be difficult. But you just have to keep going and not give up.  Learning from failure and learning to bake also means you will also learn how to use an oven, knife and learn how to shop for the right ingredients. Also learn how to read the recipes and follow them. 

controlling the health of the menu and ingredients. (physical health)  

In making your own food you have the control over which ingredients you are going to use and how healthy your food will be. Firstly when you make your food you know exactly what you put in. There are alternative foods that you can use. For example if you can’t eat eggs there are different foods that you can use like: bananas, yogurt, apple sauce, tofu, flax seeds, water, sweetened condensed milk and buttermilk. Also for sugar there are alternative foods like: Stevia, honey, maple syrup, molasses, coconut, sugar  and more. Try to stick to healthy habits like eating healthier and try to workout more often. Control your ingredients and choosing healthier ones. Salads will make your menus healthier.  You can also search different substitutes for fats, flour and more .

In summary, cooking is fun. You can do it with your friends or, when there is a pandemic it can help occupy your time. Cooking uses our creativity, it’s also an art. It is colorful and full of textures.

Cooking allows you to learn new life skills. You learn to read the ingredients where  to buy them and understand the directions on how to use them. You learn your way around the kitchen, how to turn on an oven, how to chop with a knife and how to clean up, well sometimes.. You need to be patient when you cook or bake, you will learn from mistakes. Most of all cooking really helps teach time management. You need to know to know if the lasaga needs to go in before the cookies.

Cooking and baking your own dishes lets you know exactly what ingredients you will be eating and it allows you to substitute ingredients to make things healthier.

I hope that after hearing from me today, if you haven’t tried to cook or bake, don’t be scared or shy to try. Now better than ever it’s a perfect time to step into the kitchen and test out some delicious recipes. 

Thanks for listening!
