Hello for this blog post I will be talking about how I answered my main inquiry question. At the beginning of the capstone project we were asked to have a "main inquiry question" and sub questions. Those questions were suppose to guide or research. My main inquiry question is what factors contributed to the conflict between Japan and America during WWII? I chose this question because I did not know anything about the Pacific war. which is Japan vs America btw they call the Pacific war the Pacific war because America and Japan were fighting for the Pacific islands. I was also really into my main inquiry question because I had know clue of how/why a war would start. Something that was unique about my question is that my answer was a list of answers instead of one. After all of my research here is my answer one of the factors is POWER. one of them is power because if you want to become a better bigger country then you control the world. another factor is resources. Another factor is resources because they needed more resources. the last factor is Pearl Harbor. Another factor is Pearl Harbor. Another factor is Pearl Harbor because the attack on Pearl Harbor outraged Americans. It outraged Americans because it killed 2,403 people that day (December 7 1941), and it almost destroyed the US Navy. Thank you for reading this blog hope you enjoyed it. 😁👌.
Hello! For this blog post, I will be talking about what we did on mixtures and solutions in school. Mrs Robert switched classes with Mrs Boyer for a period of time. Mrs Robert was the teacher for math and Mrs Boyer was the teacher for science. So, for our science homework, we needed to right a blog post. In the first class, we got a set of games that would prepare us for "messy science". You might think how would that help us for the messy science project? It would because it will give us an idea of how the ingredient would work and science language like compounds and mixtures. And it will also prepare us because it will get our mind thinking about science. One of the games that we played that day was that you had to know the definition of everything (it was like a test). At the end of that day, we were each assigned a video about a dissolvent and a solute. And today in class, we had to come up with a hypothesis on what would happen in the experiment. My group: Maddy, Gus and me were right on the hypothesis. The two experiments that we did were oil with colored salt and vinegar with colored salt. What happened during the oil experiment was that the colored salt went straight to the bottom and it was easy to separate. But, for the vinegar experiment, the exact opposite happened - it dissolved into the vinegar and it was super hard to separate. We were supposed to answer what a dissolvent and a solute were. A dissolvent is the substance that is not liquid in a experiment and a solute is the substance that is the liquid. For example, for my experimenting the solute would be the oil or the vinegar and the dissolvent would be the be the colored salt. Over all this experiment was really fun I really enjoyed the two days of science!
