It’s tomorrow! Today we picked the seeds out of our seed pods. Most if our seeds were brown. I took one seed it was a good size and I’m so excited to plant it! We planted the Wisconsin fast Plant. The name of the planet really dose describe it! It only took 20 something days to do this! And look at the results!
Here is the process for growing Wisconsin Fast plants.
- Plant the Wisconsin fast seed
- Put it in a sunny spot
- Water it everyday
- Record what you see ( opinal)
- When your plant grows flowers pollinate
- When you have seed pods and you think there ready pick them.
- Take the seeds out of them.
- Do this prosses over and over again.
Hey, have you ever wonderd how the Wisconsin Fast Plant gets planted in the wiled? Well i have the ansser for you, when the seed pods grow they are on the plant but when they get old then the plants will fall of and get re-planted. Also, animals can eat the seeds and poop them out. The last way is that you might be eating a fruit and then you spitt out the seed you are planting a seed.
my group and I and…….. My seed pods
To start this we had to pick our our country and partner that we wanted to work with. After that we hit the books! We had several books to do our research with. Then in all of the five cultural universe we put our info in the one that fit in our packet. When we finished that packet we started making our tour guides. When that was finished we started making the ACTUAL comic books.The five cultural universals are politics, social aspects, economics, beliefs, and cultural arts. The title of my book is called CU-France.my favorite part of the project was making out characters because we could get as creative as we liked. I found a few things challenging. One is that when you insert a picture you have to make sure that it is exactly what you are talking about and describing. Like when we THOUGHT that we added in a picture of the louvre it turned out to be the white house! Also we had to make text boxes, and what was challenging about that is that they had to be the same size and they had to be in the same spot. The last thing is the animations. We had to make a boat and then we had to make it come or fly in some how. It had to be in a spastic way depending on what side your boat was facing. Also we had to know that difference between slide into the left and fly into the left. But finally we figured it out. I hope you enjoy my book!
There are a lot of cultural universals. Let’s start with Politics. My parents set the rules in my house. Thay set rules to make everything fair and to make everyone healthy. One rule is no computer an hour before bedtime. They set this rule so we pay attention in school the next day. Plus looking at screens all day isn’t good for your brain. These are the politics.
I go to school at Heathcote. School is seven hours a day. For the whole week it is 35 hours. My favorite subject is writing. One the weekend I go to church. I also play softball and basketball. We use my kitchen the most in my house. It is very blue. We use the kitchen the most because that’s where my mom and dad cook. I live with my parents and two sisters. To celebrate birthday parties we go out. I like to play the game prodigy, it i sa math game.
We have some beliefs too. We celebrate Christmas. We celebrate eid in December. We celebrate it to celebrate Jesus birthday.When I’m older I want to be a vet, because I want to be close to animals and make them feet better. I also celebrate Easter. I celebrate it in March. I celebrate it because it’s the day Jesus rose from the dead. Every year we celebrate christmas eve at my house. My family believes in educations. I stamp costs 50 cents. A gallon of milk costs 5 dollars. I travel on car, plane, train, and boat. I plotted the church on my map to represent this.
These are my cultural arts, my favorite movie is pants on fire because its so funny, my favorite food is popcorn because it has a great flavor and it’s so chewy to me, my favorite color is blue, and I play the piano, I have been playing for three years now. I have one pet. It is a frog. I like to listen to music by Ed Sheeran because it’s calming. Those are reasons why I put these reasons on social aspects.
They are a lot of Economics in Scarsdale. For example there are goods, store, services and many more Economics. One is “ Balducci’s Food lover’s” Also in sevases there are schools like, fox Meadow, Green Akers, and Egwood. These belong in economics. That is why I put them on my map. Also, Lord And taylor sells goods. That is why I put it on my map. Also the highway is in Economics to because, that’s how we transition.
That is all the reasons why I plotted all those things. I hope you enjoyed learning about scarsdale and looking at my map.
This is reflection number three on our plants. Lately we have been pollinating. Pollinating is where we act like insects and pollinate the plants by getting polon on the pistol and put it on another plant pistil. After we polonated we noticed that our pistils are getting fatter. When there fat enough we will grow seeds in them and it will become a seed pod. We are getting some seed pods from pollination. They don’t all grow the actual seeds yet but soon they will.
I Have two quotes. A quote is what our plant is held in. One of them is controlled the other is manipulated. In our controlled our plants are green. Our highest plant measures 11 cm. Our shortest is 3 cm. It became three because it did then we cut it and hoped it would grow. In our manipulated our plants are doing really well.Our highest is 14 cm. Oir smallest is 6 cm. Most of our plants are green. We are growing some seed pods to. We Also have some flowers..
I think that we are going to be growing seed pods in every sell. I think that after this week that our plants will grow even taller. Maybe they will grow to 30 cm! Probably not but that IS possible. These plants never stop growing because when the seeds fall out of seed pod new plants start growing. I’m so excited to see what our plants will turn out at the end.Well I’ll find out soon!
This is blog post #2 on plants. In our controlled we are growing flowers. Some of our plants are dying. The highest plant measures 11 c.m. The shortest is six c.m. long. Most of our plants are green, but the ones that are dying are brown. Our healthy ones are bright green and most have flowers. The change with our plants since the start is that now they have flowers and in the beginning they had no flowers. What a big change!
In our manipulated our tallest plants is 15 cm tall and our smallest is 6 cm tall. We are noticing some flowers in each cell of our plant. Most of them are green. None of them are dying. We are manipulating natural sunlight. The change with our plants since the start is that when we first started with our plants they had no flowers and the highest measurement was 5 cm, but now we have lots of flowers and our highest is 15cm.
These things happened because we took good care of our plants. We also solved a lot of plant problems. When we realized that our plants were not growing flowers we put our plants closer to where the water got sucked up and then three days later we had flowers! Also, when our plants were drooping we got our teacher and asked for something to hold up our plant and she gave us sticks. I wonder how our plants will turn our at the end. Soon we’ll find out!
It is the third week of our plants. The first thing we did when we started planting was add the wicks, the wicks is something that soaks up the water and the water goes up into the plant. After that we added soil. Then we added the fertilizer to help our plant grow. Then we added a [inch of soil. After that we added the actual seed. To top it all up we added more soil. We did that twice.
We needed to find out a scientific question. My groups question was will our plant grow better if we put it by the window sill for natural light. Our other plant was under a lamp. My hypothesis is that our plant by the window sill will grow better. The heist plant in controlled is 11 c.m. In manipulated it is 16cm.
Our manipulated is doing pretty well.It is growing higher then our controled. We started growing some flowers. Its really exiting to see new things happening to our plant. Maybe the flowers will turn into a fruit! Well will find out soon!
Our first track we planed is very different from the one we have now. We thought that’s if we placed stript magnets all over the track on the south side and put the train on the south side then the train would levitate. But we were wrong. Also on our track we only used stript magnets and we layed about four on our track.
Our first track plan
We had a lot of problems. But, one stood out if them all. We only got one side to levitate. We tried everything but nothing worked. Then someone in my group had a really good idea. “ We should flip this magnet on the track and maybe it would levitate!” The person said. So we did that and then……………….. It didn’t work. So and then someone else in my group noticed that the train and the tracks don’t line up. So then we lined it up and then………… It worked!!!
My group working together
For our final design we did lot of things. There were two stript magnets in our track far apart from each other. On our train we put strip magnets on opposite sides. We had stript magnets that reached both sides of our train. e only had one layer.
In the beginning I felt really frustrated because we only got one side to float. When we tried to get it to float but it didn’t then I was mad and sad. But then when we got both sides to levitate, I was really happy!</span
