My birthstone shelf

So for our self directed science we were doing rocks and minerals, well for that we had to choose something that has to do with rocks and minerals. and we had to do some sort of project  that has to do with what you chose. I chose birthstones, I found a lot of facts who knew birthstones were that cool? any way my project was a self that had a bunch of birthstones on it so I will go through  all the steps for how I made it then I will put a picture of it as well.

 

  1. get a rectangle box with an opening
  2. get 1 big piece of cardboard to go in the middle
  3. get 16 pieces of cardboard to put for shelves (thats right 16 birthstones!)
  4. glue the cardboard inside the cardboard
  5.   get all the birthstones
  6. put all those pictures of birthstones on a google docs
  7. print it
  8. glue the pictures on to the shelf
  9. take a picture of it

Now you are done

Innovation day project

Hello today I will be talking about the project I did for innovation day we had to make   medievel  castles with a working drawbridge and everything we had to make rooms in the castle like the throne room a great hall.  here are some facts I learned during my research…

facts about castles…

  1. there are so many difrent types of castles  like diffrend shapes and sizes.
  2. castle walls sometimes enclosed a series of small buildings.
  3. castles have a water supply within the walls.

lords vs serfs…

  1. lords are quite powerful while serfs are not
  2.  lords could do a lot more then serfs could

feudal system…

1.  the king is at the top the king was the most powerful                                                                                            2.  nobles, lords and church leaders were the second most powerful                                                                      3. middle class, merchants and craftsmen are the third most powerful                                                                 4. freeman and serfs are the least most powerful

 

 

here is some more stuff I will talk about

Hi everyone today I am going to talk about  our inovation day project  we were told to make a medievel castle with a working draw bridge a drawbridge is a big type of door that  opens  by going up and down instead of regular doors that you are used to so we are told to type down how we made our castle.

  1.  Get a carboard box with no top (if there in a top cut it off)
  2. Make a hole for the drawbridge
  3. cut out squares on the top for decoration
  4. make the pulley system
  5. atach to the drawbridge
  6. add gears (to get extra)
  7. we made a pulley system flag for our teacher (it was her bimoji) but you can probably do one for yourself
  8. build a wath tower/jailhouse we made a fire pit at the top
  9. now inside the castle we made a clock
  10. we made a table
  11. we made a throne ( if you have a bitmoji you can be the king/queen)
  12. we made a toilet ( make you on the toilet too!)
  13. Now its time to paint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  14. paint it grey (if you want use black to make bricks)
  15. now you can decorate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  16. what we did was use bitmojis but you can use stickers or something or if you like your castle how it is dont do any thing
  17. take a picture with you and your castle
  18. YOU ARE DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

here is our video:

here is some pictures of me doing the castle:

These pictures are of us painting the castle.

Here is my self assesment:

My teacher likes giveing us these after we do a project it is sort of us grading our selfs so this is how I think I am

My hypothisis:

A hypothesis is what someone thinks is going to happen sometimes it is what they think and sometimes it is not what they think.

I thought our castle would be big and painted light grey and would look better but it is fine the way it is it is not exactly pretty but it is creative and unique but anyway I thought our pulley system would not work that great but it worked pretty good I did not think we would use gears but you know what we did I thought we would only use one pulley system but we used THREE!  I really thought our castle would have turned out pretty bad but it turned out amazing!

BYE THANKS FOR READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop motion

Hello today I am going to talk about about what we were doing in English we were doing stop motion. Stop motion  is this thing where you take a bunch of pictures and it turns out to be sort of like a video thing you can do it with clay or lego here are to videos on how to do it

Clay:

Lego:

and here in mine that I made with a couple of kids in my class

so we were reading this book called The wild robot so the task that we were suposed to was create a stop motion  so we had to make a  backround and characters it  was really fun  it took like a month or maybe more.

here is  pictures from my stop motion booklet

here is my design

set design

my self assesment

the things that went well were well pretty much everything exept getting roz out of the crate and we waited for a long time to ask for help so next time we will ask for help sooner.

 

 

THANKS FOR READING!

Sound Unit

Hi everyone I am going to talk about the second science unit we did! the second science unit we did was sound. These are five the  properties  of sound.

1.Sound travels.

2. Sound can be reflected[it can bounce off things].

3.Sound can be absorbed [it does not bounce off some things].

4.Sound can be modified [e.g. pitch and loudness].

5. Sound is caused by vibrations .

I am going to tell you some questions my teacher asked me and I answered.

  1. Why can you hear  someone  who is in a another room?                                                                                 because sound travels. the way it travels  is because the sound reflects.
  2. Why do we hear echoes ?                                                                                                                                         we hear echoes because of a reflect wave.
  3.  In a recording studio the walls a covered in bumpy foam. why would they do this?                               because when walls are like  that the sound reflects better.
  4.    Name multiple objects we have that allow us to increase the volume of a sound .                                microphones and megaphones.

5.  Why  can we hear sounds better in air then we can  underwater?                                                                       because there is not enough air.

Did you know that dogs can hear way more sounds the humans can?

Pitch refers to how high or low a sound is. a flute makes a high pitch sound, where as a tuba makes a low pitch sound

Here is my ear

so the way I made this was I first cut out a lot of cardboard into a lot of different   shapes and sizes then I had to hot glue  the cardboard clay and stuff like that so the reason we did this was because we were learning about sound.
this is what sounds waves look like

Light unit

hi everyone I am going to tell you about the unit in science we were doing. We were investigating light like how light travels. We did 3  experiments the first one was so we had to get 4 index cards, a straw , clay and a flash light. So we poked holes in 3 of the index cards and the forth one we drew a bullseye then we had to put the flash light through the holes and make it hit the bullseye now I will show you a picture of me and my friend doing it

the next experiment we did was it was something that had to do with a pencil and a clear cup of water when we put the pencil in it looked like it broke  Pencil Water Glass Refraction Stock Photos - Free & Royalty-Free Stock Photos from Dreamstimethe last thing we did was sort of like a window so the first thing we put on it was called opaque it is something that  you can not see through    the second thing we put was called  transparent  that is something you can see through and the last thing we put was called  translucent  that is something that you can sort of see through here is mine  another thing we did was something was  called natural light VS artificial light  How Long Is a Bolt of Lightning? - Eos

I really liked this unit.  it was really fun. I don’t know what I want to improve on. everything was going well  and I am exited about what we are going to do in future.

My Recount

It was a cold and snowy morning when I awoke at 2:00 am February 28 to go to Florida. Me, my mom and my brothers got in the car and we were about 20 minutes away from the airport. The flight was at 4:00am. We all boarded the plane and off we went for three hours. I liked the plane ride. My little brother was very confused; he does not remember going on a plane to Florida. I said where we were going and he was not so confused anymore.

On and on the plane went, soon after we were in Florida. We all got out of the plane into the airport. we got into a car that was not so far away from the airport. drove another 3 hours and then we went into one of my grandparents houses. and settled in then me and my brothers ran down the street to my grandparents house and we went into their pool. The pool was big . A bit later we ran back to the house we were staying in and we went into the pool there the pool was a tiny bit bigger and then we had dinner and we ate hot dogs. Then we went to sleep. The room I slept in was white and I went to sleep slowly.
