This week in french class we all had to make are own little city it had land mark and streets which were labeled in french and we had to present to the hole class and here is my presentation.

Matter project

My matter project was about plastic manufacturing and plastic in the ocean. the reason why I decided on plastic was because I know it’s one of the biggest problem in the world right now besides for covid-19.  this is my big paragraph I made and my kahoot.

 

 

    How do you feel when you hear about plastic manufacturing and plastic in the ocean? When I hear them I think of air pollution and sea animals dying. You might wonder why air pollution? Well when you make anything in a factory there is smoke that comes out of the top of the factory and it’s called air pollution. Why are animals dying from plastic? It’s because they’re getting trapped in it, and they are eating plastic and plastic has chemicals in it so basically they are eating chemicals. So yes, there are some good things you get from plastic like, medical equipment, reusable water bottle, garbage bags, silicone straws, silicone cupcake pans, silicone spatial, silicone molds, silicone muffin cups and pretty much anything made from silicone because it’s reusable. But there’s also  negative implications you get from plastic like full landfills, animals dying, plastic in the oceans, plastic in tap water, and plastic also doesn’t decompose. Did you know that there is more than just plastic in the ocean and air pollution like there’s so much plastic in the ocean and washed up onto land like bottles,bottle caps, grocery bags, face shields, masks, milk cartons, styrofoam, straws and so much more. Also did you know by 2050 there will be 5 billion tons of plastic waste. Over 700 species of marine animals have eaten plastic or are stuck in the plastic that is in the oceans, and also sadly dying. Finally did you know that every day around 8 million pieces of plastic make it into the oceans. There’s still so much plastic in the oceans. I’m saying plastic is bad for the world even though there are some good reasons to have it. You don’t have to fully get rid of it just use less of it.hope you have a good day! Save the oceans and save our lives.

so this is my big paragraph have a good day.

Innovation Day

           Innovation Day

    Solar panel / solar energy  

                 Enertree  

                            Georgia smith & Talia Waggott

 

Introduction  

For our project we did solar energy.  We had to do a lot of research to find out if you could store solar energy.  We learnt that you could keep the energy in a big battery so you can store overnight.  So you can charge devices or anything else you want to plug in. You could also use the power from the sunlight in the day to watch tv at night.  Now that we told you our main topic we are going to tell you about our project.  For our project we decided to make a prototype electric tree that you would see in the beginning of the movie “The Lorax”.  

Lorax – Disco tree

 

Empathy paragraph

Well we were making this project we got frustrated because it became very hard to think of an idea.  Then we thought of the idea to make the dico tree. ( Lorax – Disco tree ) but we would make it in a  more modest version  with led lights so you can make it into any mode with a touch of a button.  Maybe we could build a model with led light and a little solar panel for fun one day. 

 

Ideate paragraph 

We are deciding to make an electric tree with lots of different functions like disco mode and different colors.  We also  want it to look really cool.  We will add fireworks, a projector, outlets  and come with 5 puppies. At the top of the electric tree there will be a  solar panel and  a battery will be at the end of the tree to keep the solar energy so you can use the energy from the day at night. The diso mode and the collar will come from led lights that are in glass balls. This idea came from the lorax.

 

written explanation   

For our explanation of what an enertree is, it’s a metal tree with metal branches.  At the end of each branch there is a big hard plastic ball with led light strips in them.at the end of the tree there is a place where there is a charger port, led light controller, a place to get the puppies out of and a big battery to keep the energy in.

How to make a cootie catcher

This is how i make a cootie catcher.

  1. make a square out of paper (colored or regular paper).
  2. now take the square and fold it into a smaller square by folding in the the 4 corners.
  3. flip over the paper and fold in the corners again.
  4. turn it over and you will see 4 little squares. (so you did it the right way).

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)
