Comments on a High School Blog

1.Hi McKay, my name is Dylan. This seems to be a really good project to work with. It seems you have a great understanding about it. Good luck with the research!

2.Hi Isabel, This story really relates to me because, I am a eighth grader this year! This really caught my eye, especially cause of the title “Making Connections”. Cause I was able to make really good connections with what it was like for you in eighth grade and me now. Keep up the great work!

Mood and Setting - Snowy Cabin

In the warm cozy cabin the smell of sweet cinnamon fills the room. A kettle hanging over fire, its soothing sound of its slow bubbling. I look outside of the majestic view of the wide open snow covered forests.

Reflections on my Science Lesson

I got to work with Law of Superposition. What we did is we had to have these four things in the assignment.

1) Visual
2) Notes
3) Thinking question
4) Activity

We each got a partner and had to give a science lesson and its a really fun assignment and everyone really enjoyed it!

Bean Project Results

Problem

What will work better to grow a bean plant Water or Dr. Pepper?

Background knowledge

I know that water is already used to grow plants well, but is it possible for Dr. Pepper to do better?

Hypothesis

What will make the seed grow faster Dr.Pepper or water?

Materials

1) 2 cups
2) Dirt
3) 2 beans
4) Dr. Pepper
5) Water
6) Gradulated Cylinder
7) Scale
8) Pencil and paper
9) Ruler

Method

Step 1: Make a hypothesis/ what will make the seed grow faster Dr. Pepper or water?
Step 2: Get the materials needed.
Step 3: Get 2 beans that have the same color and texture.
Step 4: Get 2 cups and fill them 3/4 of the way full of dirt.
Step 5: Weigh the beans and get two that weigh the same. Also weigh the dirt and make its weight equal for both cups.
Step 6: Dig a hole in the middle of each cup 2 centimeters into the cup.
Step 7: Place 1 seed in each cup, and then fill in the hole.
Step 8: Fill 1 cup with 5ML of water, and the other 5ML full of Dr. Pepper.
Step 9: Make a table and measure the size it has grown each day for 3 weeks.
Step 10: Conclude your data by which has gotten taller.

Conclusion

For my expeirment I didn't have any growth for Dr. Pepper nor Water. So my Conclusion would have to be water because its already what most people use to grow things anyway.

Questions

Why didn't Dr.Pepper grow at all?

Procedures for my bean expeirment.

                                                                               Original methodology                                
Step 1: Get materials.
Step 2: Fill cups with 3/4 of the way full of dirt.
Step 3: Put the seeds in the 2 cups.
Step 4: Fill one cup with 5 ML full of water.
Step 5: Fill the other cup with 5ML full of Dr. Pepper.
Step 6: Do steps 4 and 5 each day for 3 weeks.
Step 7: Record your data regularly basis each day by how tall its getting.
Step 8: Which liquid made it grow faster? (conclusion)
      
                                                        Revised methodology
Step 1: Make a hypothesis/ What will make the seed grow faster Dr.Pepper or water?
Step 2: Get the materials needed.
Step 3: Get 2 beans that have the same color and texture.
Step 4: Get 2 cups and fill them 3/4 of the way full of dirt.
Step 5: Weigh the beans and get two that weigh the same. Also weigh the dirt and make its weight equal for both cups.
Step 6: Dig a hole in the middle of each cup 2 centimeters into the cup.
Step 7: Place 1 seed in each cup, and then fill in the hole.
Step 8: Fill 1 cup with 5ML of water, and the other 5ML full of Dr.Pepper.
Step 9: Make a table and measure the size it has grown each day for 3 weeks.
Step 10: Conclude your data by which has gotten taller.

                                                                             Reflection
            I had to change my procedure because, if I had to do this by my first procedure there might be parts missing and I wouldn't be able to figure it out so I made a revised copy so its easier to get it done. In my last procedure I didn't say to weigh anything or get a very similar bean. I also didn't say how far to dig the holes in the dirt to bury the seeds.

Internet Safety Story/ Cyberbulling

      One day Lindsey was coming home chating with her friends like a usual weekday during school. She came home and checked her email, and had some messeges. Some from friends, family, and one from someone she didn't reconize. The messege said,
                      "Hey Liz, I doubt you remember me. I came to your fourth birthday? Well anyway I moved down to florida kinda close to you guys and wondering if you wanted to come and hangout in my basement. I bought a flatscreen and tons of other cool stuff if u wanna come take a look.
                                                                                                                        Steve Hardings,
                                                                                                                        Aug 4, 2004,
                                                                                                                        10:42 AM

       Liz thought to herself and thought, "Hmmm, I don't remember him, maybe i can spend some time with my cousin and hangout with him to see if i can remember him in anyway."
                "Sure I wheres it at? I'd love to see how u've been."  Lindsey Crawford
                                                                                               Aug 4, 2004,
                                                                                               4:21 PM
      Later that same day she got the message of where it was at. So she made the mistake of telling her mom she's going to her friends house. She went over there and is till missing.

                Moral: Find out if you really know them to avoid the worse.
