Week 35 was short. We took a Tuckaleechee Caverns tour and we took a Karm Field trip too. We had Field day. In all, IT was a great week and I had a lot of fun.

Week 30 was pretty short. We have Friday off this week and have Monday off next week. We also did (not exciting) TCAP prep. We are going to do Friday Fun Lunch today. MY BIRTHDAY IS OFFICIALLY IN 1 DAY AND MONTH! I am going to have an Easter dinner with my family on Easter. I’m also going to have some sleepovers this weekend and have a baseball game tonight along with practice on Saturday. Bye!

Mountains & Oceans

By: Austin Mayes

 

Have you wondered how oceans or mountains have affected our weather? Have you wondered ever how it happened? Well, I can tell you all about it. I can tell you why the temperature stays around the same when you are closer to oceans and why one side of a mountain gets more rain than another.

 

Mountains affect the weather by having a windward side and a leeward side. The windward side has a lot of wind (obviously), but it also has more rain. The leeward side is sheltered from the wind and the rain has either frozen or stopped by the time the rain comes over the mountain. That is how mountains affect temperature and climate.

 

Oceans affect the temperature by keeping the climate around the same degree throughout the year. Oceans absorb and distribute solar energy around the world. They move warm and cold energy around the world through currents. Areas can expect more rain if the winds push toward the land. That is how oceans affect temperature and climate.

Week 29 was amazing!!! We got mustaches from our music class, Had the track and field meet on Tuesday, and got to here our schools soul singers. We also have Friday Fun Lunch, Science power points, Rachil’s birthday, TCAP PREP, and Elite meet for track. We made a video for Track, sent ePal letters to France along with a powerpoint, and made Track decorations. I can’t believe UConn won the college National Championship, I thought it would be Kentucky. That’s all for this week.

Here is my research:

 

Scientific Tools

By: Austin Mayes

 

Have you ever wondered who invented the microscope? Or who invented the telescope? Or who invented the x-ray? Well I have the answer to all of those in the following paragraphs. So pay attention.

 

X-rays can help you in many ways and do many things. Wilhelm Borten invented the x-ray at the University of Würzburg. It was invented to see broken bones straight through tissue. X-rays can also find cavities. Did you know that? It can also find swallowed objects that are stuck in your throat or stomach. I have been x-rayed twice now and it is weird but not scary.

 

Microscopes are very cool. Zacharias Jarseen invented the microscope in 1594. It was made to see tiny objects and study objects to make sure they aren’t harmful. We are now able to see cells because of the microscope and a bunch of other stuff that we can’t see with our own eyes.

 

The telescope was invented by the same person as the microscope. The telescope was meant to see constellations, stars, meteors, astroids, and planets. It helps make sure meteors aren’t going to hit Earth or anything like that.

Week 27 was great! Here is my research:

 

Cells have many parts. There are animal and plant cells. Plant cells have many parts. One of the parts is the cell wall, it gives the cell its shape and gives it support. It also has a cell membrane like the animal cell. The nucleus is the control center of a cell and is in both types of cells. Another part of a cell are vacuoles, vacuoles are the storage facilities of the cell. The chloroplast is the part of the plant cells chlorophyll. The part of the cell that is a jelly like substance is the cytoplasm. The mitochondria is what releases stored energy from the cell. These are the parts of the cell.

 

Animal and plant cells have different organelles. For instance, the plant cell has a cell wall and the animal cell does not. Another organelle that a plant cell has that an animal doesn’t have is chloroplast. The rest they all have the same like the nucleus. also, cytoplasm, vacuole, and cell membrane. There are a lot of organelles in   cells and they are all hard to keep up with. I think cells are interesting and i want to study them more in school. those are the differences between plant and animal cells.

 

Animals and plants get energy from things. Plants get nutrients from the sun and use photosynthesis to get food and energy. Animals get energy from the sun, animals, and plants. So that means  get energy from the sun, animals, and plants. The part of the plant that gets the sun is the leaf. The animal cell gets energy from the food that gets distributed through the cells. It gets vitamin d from the sun.  It also gets oxygen from the plants.
