My structure

In class we had to make a structure that could stand up to a natural disaster of our choice. Of course it was out of wood and popsicle sticks and it did not have to stand up to a real natural disaster, just a fake version of the natural disaster that we choose. i chose to build a bridge and have it stand up against a flood. i learned that you cant always test everything ahed of time.

Materials

For my project i used popsicle sticks, hot glue, a plastic container,  and wood. the wood was the supports, the hot glue was what held it all together, and the popsicle sticks were the bridge its self. the plastic container is what the project is in. what i used to make sure the “flood” doesn’t cover the bridge is i made the supports and the bridge really high off the ground.

What’s The Matter Project

This is my canva

What we had to do for the what’s the matter project is we each choose a type of pollution and write a blog or video about it. What I chose was plastic pollution. I chose to do plastic pollution because it is killing ocean life. Some animals are even going extinct because they are suffocating in plastic. The link at the top is the video that I made about plastic pollution.

My topic was plastic pollution. In the video I added things like what are the positive and negative implications and what you can do  to help. I also made a save the planet poster. Here is picture.

What I like the best about my canva video is all the ways you can help. I hope some of you look into some more ways you can help stop plastic pollution. If I could have done it differently I would try to make room for all of the negative implications instead of saying “ and more”. What I enjoyed the most about this project is I got to learn more about ways that I can help stop pollution. In conclusion this project was a great way to learn more about pollution.

Science: Pulley System

How does my pulley system work?

How my pulley system works is you turn the pulley stick and it lifts the elevator.

My hypothesis:

I think when you turn the pulley counter clockwise it will turn the lift the string and the elevator and when you turn it clockwise it will lower the string and the elevator.

My procedure: Step by step

Step 1: Gather materials.
Step 2: Make structure to hold pulley system.
Step 3: Make the elevator box.
Step 4: Poke hole in each wall.
Step 5: Put stick through hole.
Step 6: Tape stick making the stick not be able to come off of the structure.
Step 7: Poke holes across from each other on the elevator box.
Step 8: Wrap a string around your stick.(Leave room to tie the string to the holes of your elevator box)
Step 9: Tie the string to the holes of your elevator box.
Step 10: Decorate!

Materials:

  • A lot of card board
  • Hot glue
  • Paint
  • String
  • A stick
  • Tape

My Opinion
I can’t really tell because I only read chapters 1,2,3,and 4 but so far I think it’s booooooooooring.

Legend Writing

Once upon a time, there was a city, a city where women were not allowed to do… well… pretty much anything. They weren’t allowed to read. They weren’t allowed to write. They weren’t allowed to go to school. And they weren’t allowed to get jobs that didn’t have to do with chores. On the bright side, at least they were allowed to own a pet. But other than that, all they were allowed to do was chores.

 

A girl liked to sew. So she got a job of helping sew loose buttons on people’s shirts. The girl’s name was Gabriella. Gabriella had a bunny named Bungee. Bungee was no ordinary bunny, and Bungee knew that. So did Gabriella. Well, it’s kind of obvious if you have lightning shooting out of your ears. But what neither of them knew was that Bungee was the daughter of the god of the bunnies.

 

Sophie Foster was Gabriella’s best friend. Sophie loved to read. But women weren’t allowed to read. So she had to steal a book from her brother’s bookshelf and put it back afterwards. Every night she would take a book, sit beside her hamster, Fuzzball and read. Fuzzball was no ordinary hamster and Fuzzball knew that. So did Sophie. Well, it’s kind of obvious if you have super strong teeth. But what neither of them knew was that Fuzzball was the daughter of the god of hamsters. If a family member came into Sophie’s room while she was reading, she would tuck the book under a loose tile on her floor. 

 

One day an inspector came in the house to look around and went into Sophie’s room and accidentally tripped on the loose tile and found her book. The inspector told the president’s messenger. They knew Sophie would tell her best friend everything so they questioned Gabriella. 

Gabriella said that Sophie never read any books so they pressed a gun to her neck which made her admit that Sophie did read books.  

Sophie was taken to a forest with Gabriella where people tied them up and put them in a cage. 

They secretly had Bungee and Fuzzball with them. Bungee and Fuzzball jumped out of their pockets just before they went inside their cage with the rope.  

 

Fuzzball tried to chew through the rope, but couldn’t get through the cage. Bungee could get through the cage using her lightening ears, but she couldn’t get through the rope. So they took that knowledge and turned it into a plan. Working together,  Bungee broke through the cage, and Fuzzball chewed through the rope. They got through and the girls were free. 

 

People learned that women are strong and should have rights. Now women are allowed to do the stuff they couldn’t do before.

 

Science

I am writing a blog post about reflection.

Here are 2 facts I learnt in class about reflection:

  •  reflection is when light bounces off an object.
  •   you see things because light reflects off the objects and into your eyes.

In class, we did an experiment to investigate reflecting. The experiment was called reflecting light. Here is step by step instruction of what we did.

  1.  Take a mirror & an index card. draw a bull’s eye in the exact middle.
  2.  Take a flashlight & some modelling clay.
  3. Here is a video of me doing the experiment.
