Plant blog post #2

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.

 

  1. Plant the Wisconsin fast seed
  2. Put it in a sunny spot
  3. Water it everyday
  4. Record what you see ( opinal)
  5. When your plant grows flowers pollinate
  6. When you have seed pods and you think there ready pick them.
  7. Take the seeds out of them.
  8. 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

CU- france

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!

 

CU- Scarsdale

Politics

 

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.

SA

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.

 

Beliefs

 

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.

 

CA

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.

 

Economics

 

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.

 

Closing

 

That is all the reasons why I plotted all those things. I hope you enjoyed learning about scarsdale and looking at my map.

Plant blog post #2

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!

Plants post #1

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!

Maglev post #3

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

 

Maglev Post #2

Today we started day #2 of our maglev trains. We had some problems and some successes. The success is that we got one side to levitate. We used little disk magnets on the bottom of our train. So then when we tested it out we saw that one side levitated. We had six disk magnets on our vehicle. We put three on each side of our train.   We put them on the dotted side so they would repel to the track magnets. We only got one side to levitate but that’s better than nothing!

 

We also had some fails. There was one side of our train that did not float.  We learned from our mistake that disk magnets work better than strip magnets for our vehicle. Because of our fail we flipped the track magnet around to see if it would levitate like that. We tested it out and it still did not work.

 

My goal for my next design session is to get the left side of the train to levitate. I don’t know how we’re going to do it. But, my team always finds a way to fix things!

Maglev Train Response #1

A maglev train is a train that floats above a magnetic track. There are magnets on the train and track. The train floats about ten c.m.  above the track. The train can float higher depending on how many magnets there are on the track. For my group at first for the track our track only had one layer of repelling magnets so our train didn’t levitate. For our train we stacked disk magnets on top of eachother. That was a fail. So then we put other magnets on the bottom of the disk magnets and flipped the strip magnets around. Then the train levitate

 

Today on the tracks we put strip magnets on our track and for the train we put disk magnets on the same side. Then we put our train in out box and then we saw then it could levitate! But, before that we did fail . We put the magnets on repelling sides and then…… the train repelled and it floated! Everyone in my group cheered.

 

At first my experience in my group was ok. But, then when things started to come together my experience was great! We used a few tweaks and a lot a tape to make this possible. We’re not done yet though. We are working on moving our train across the track quicker and with a light push. It challenged us to make the tweaks because we didn’t know what was wrong at first but the we figured things out!

Jeremy changes from selfish to giving

Guess what I am a literary essayist. This is my first  essay I ever wrote.It took a lot of revisions to make this my best work. It took ONLY two weeks so this is probably not going to be my best literary essay. I spent a lot of time tuning this whole thing up and I hope you can see that. Yes, this book is not PERFECT but I tried to make it the best I  can make it be. I really hope my effort and work all paid off. This is my first literary essay I ever wrote and I am really proud of my self I never new I could go this far in my first peace. I hope you agree with my claim and like my essay.

Here it is…….

Those Shoes”

by Maribeth Bolths

In the book “Those Shoes” by Maribeth Bolts Jeremy changes from selfish to giving.

In the beginning of the book Jeremy is selfish when he wants to be the fastest runner again.He says to his grandma, “I want new shoes.” But grandma said there is no room for want just need and what you need are new boots. Jeremy doesn’t care what his grandma says all he cares about is new sneakers. Then at recess Jeremy has a hole in his sneakers. Mr. Passkey gave Jeremy new shoes and he didn’t even say thank you or care that Mr. Passkey gave him new shoes.This shows me that Jeremy is being selfish because the only shoes he will accept are those shoes.

Also, in the beginning of the book Jeremy wants to buy shoes that are too small for him. For example he made his grandma go to four stores just to buy those shoes. In the first store they had those shoes but they are too expensive then they go to three thrift shops and in one of them Jeremy sees those shoes. He buys those shoes even though they are to small for him. Grandma is not happy about that. Jeremy doesn’t care. Jeremy knows his family is poor but he still buys those shoes. This shows me that Jeremy is not thinking clearly about those shoes.

At the end of the story Jeremy changes from selfish to giving. For example when Antonio and Jeremy were playing basketball Antonio jumped and a loose piece of tape came right off his shoe. Jeremy had two pairs of shoes. “I’m not going to do it.” Jeremy said to himself three times. He wasn’t going to give Antonio  his new shoes that were too small for him. Then later that day Jeremy went across the street to Antonio’s apartment building. He put his new shoes in front of Antonio’s door rang the doorbell and ran away. The next day Jeremy saw Antonio smiling at his new shoes. Jeremy felt happy looking at Antonio’s smile. This is important because it tells us that Jeremy thinks that a friend is more important than any old pair of shoes.

 

My Expert Book- Becoming An Expert On Planets And Stars

I am a published author! I have written a book that I am a expert on. My book is about planets and stars. This book took so much time to make, about two months.  I chose this topic because I know a lot about  planets and stars.The assignment was about making a book with captions, text features and elaborating and don’t forget making this book the best it can be. The most important thing to do to make this book successful was to name my chapters and order them in my book. It is about understanding planets and stars in an whole other way. In this nonfiction book it’s not just facts, facts ,facts facts. There are also ideas. Like the whole idea of the story is to really understand what stars and planets are. You need an idea for the facts.  I learned all about planets and stars from my sister. I have been interested in them since I was six and I am almost nine, so almost three years now. I read books about planets and stars. I read my sister’s book on planets and stars. I learned some stuff on National Geographic on planets and stars. I learned not to mention the word “I’ in my book.  I also learned to add in statistics expert words and how to organize my chapters. I also learned that in my introduction  to explain what the whole book is about to dry and say a least a few sentences about each part of my book to use fancy word and explain what they mean in the glossary and adding pictures that describe what your saying in the book.  I learned how to organize my information text. I put the information in my chapter that fit in my chapter name. i learned to use transition words like also, and, another reason, because, and one way. I also learned to use expert vocabulary, like insted of saying some lions live in groups you can say, Lions live in groups called prides. I have all of that in my book! I hope this book inspires you to read more about this topic when you are done reading this book. I hope you love learning about planets and stars in my book to! I love this topic and after you read this I hope you will love them as much as I do and I hope you can see that planets and star are very interesting.
