I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt that I was in a land of marshmallow. But I was a bit confused as I had two choices. I could go to the marshmallow kingdom or go to the cookie mountains. But were could I go? I decided to go to the marshmallow kingdom first then come back to the cookie mounatins later, if I come back that is! The marshmallow kingdom wasn’t what I excpected it to be. It was all dark and misty and I did not want to get involved so I got out of there quickly! The cookie mountins on the other hand was very peaceful and quiet so I stayed there.

Prediction: I predict that this will be about problem solving.

Read: Mike and Anna have 20 stamps all together . Mike has 4 more stamps than Anna. How many stamps does Anna have?

Clarify: There was nothing to clarify.

The Big Question: How many stamps does Anna have?

Strategies: I picked a number for mike and added it up if went to twenty and if it was four more than twenty.

Summary: This question is quite different than the ones I ussally do and it was quite hard to make out but with some help from dad I got it right.

Answer: 8

Education week

On the 21/5/14 we went to Gtac to do some fun experiments with them (but it was also education week so that’s why we went) we did lots of fun stuff and learnt some awesome things and we understood most of the things they said. We started off as a whole group but then we split up into different groups.

Three things I learnt was what condensation is, what happens when you heat something up and that there are water Beatles inside dirty water. Condensation is when a gas turns into a liquid. When you heat something up it either melts or turns into a gas.

Four things I understand was that a solid turns into a liquid, a liquid turns into a gas, a gas can turn into a liquid using condensation and that gas particles bounce around walls and each other. If the gas particles slowed down they would not bounce around that much all they do was slow down and stop I their tracks.

Two questions I have left would be why are there water Beatles inside the dirty water? How was 10 balloons able to fit into one tiny bucket?

And these are my questions what I learnt and what I understand.

 

 

Gtac-reflection.

On the 6/5/14 the people at Gtac came to our school so we could do some experiments with them. So we walked to the science lab and they were there.

There we learn’t about solids and liquids. We also learn’t about how all the particles move around using the play do, rubber bands and plastic cup.

A solid can be in any kind of shape but it needs to be packed together so they can be a solid because when things are packed together it makes them hard.

A liquid can get together then move off then do that with another liquid so basically its like shaking other peoples hands for three seconds and walking away.

When you think of gas you think its just toxic stuff right? well its not you breathe it up everyday, hey but don’t get scared I’m talking about oxygen.

When we did the first activity it  was to see ho a solid particals break up when you move them, break them and even squash them (This was the activity we did with play do.) We got into groups and we had to carry the play do without touching it. The next activity was pretty much the same thing but only with a rubber band.

we started to talk about all kinds of solids and liquids and gases and then it was time to go back back to the future! No it was actually it was time to go back to class.

I found it in my backyard. It was not a her or a he, nothing but an it. It was in my garden and it was making noises. Some of it sounded a like foreign language but it wasn’t, it was alien language. Most of it went bleep bloop and some times it even said destroy this planet. I shouted to it’ no reply. I tried again still no reply. I was about to go inside when it came out of the bushes to meet me. When it looked at me, it realised that the human race is harmless and we don’t need to be destroyed. And then it disappeared.

Prediction: I predict that this will be about problem solving.

Read: At our camp we were told to make as many different sandwhiches as possible. We had cheese, tomato, lettuce and ham available so we made sandwhiches with no filling, some with just ham, others with ham and cheese and lettuce and so on. How many different sandwhiches can be made.

Clarify: There was nothing to clarify.

Strategie: I counted up all the possibleties.

Summary: overall this question was harder than usual because the ones were you have to write all the possibleties and count them up.

Answer: 15

Today was Saturday and it was lunch time, so I walked over to the kitchen to make me some noodles! But when I opened the cupboard door THERE WERE NO NOODLES! I started to panic, but I knew I had to stay calm because all I had to do was go to the supermarket. I had no time to lose, I have to get to the shop and get me some noodles. When I got to the store I ran at the speed of light to the noodles section, but I only saw one, so I raced for it and I nailed it.
