Term 2 Integrated unit: chemical change

Term 2 Reflection:

This term we have been doing a lot of science and experiments. We had the people at Gtac come to help us do all the experiments and help us learn about some of the things science has to offer.

Three things I learn’t was:

  • The particles inside a gas do not stick together like a solid but they move around a lot and bounce off  each other sort of like  a bouncy ball.
  • The particles in a solid have to stay packed together in order to stay strong so they do not break that easily.
  • The particles inside a liquid are sometimes cruising along just having a great time and going with the flow.

Two understandings I had were:

  • How a gas can turned into a liquid which is called condensation.
  • A liquid can be turned back into a solid, this method is called freezing.

One wondering I have is:

  • I have been wondering when I’m going to find out if oxygen is a gas because we walk through gas every day but does that mean that oxygen is a gas?

What was the most important thing I learnt:

 That science is every were in your bathroom,at the beach and even in your school science is every were and there are some things that are just waiting to be discovered.

How did I learn it:

Well first of all look around you, science is happening right outside your window go outside look around science is all around you and it will always be their forever.

What am I going to do with this knowledge:

 I am going to teach my knowledge to others.

The world cup is raging all over the world. Each team has to play three games  and they have to win at least one game to stay in the world cup otherwise they go home. One team lost all three of their games and were no longer able to compete in the greatest soccer competition on the planet. The fans of the team were so angry that they lost all three of their games that they went on a rampage on the streets of Brazil! And thats what happens in Brazil when a team loses their games.

Books are better than TV

I think books are better than TVs.

Firstly some books are educational and will give you the infomation you need, but a tv can not. You know why? because  the people on the documentmentrys speak too fast and you can not hear anything, but with a book you can look back at it every time.

secondly some books can take you to different places than a tv can and it can also fill your imagination. I know a tv can fill your imagination but really what TV show do you know that actully fills your imagination ( leave a comment ). Besides it all started with a book there was no tv back then.

Finally tou can take books anywhere in the world! I know what your going to say “we can take our iphone with us”, no, an iphone is not a tv and you can not take tv anywhere in the world.

These are my points of view on why books are better than tv.

Read: What is the weight of four grapefruit if one and a half grapefruit of the same size weigh 600 gms?

Clarify: there was nothing to clarify.

The Big Question: what is the weight of four grapefruit?

Strategy: I new that one and a half grapefruit = 600 gms. To get a whole number of grapefruit I doubled the one and a half which  = three. I also had to double the 600 gm which = 1200 gm. I then needed to work out what one grapefruit weighed. So I  divided 1200 gm by three which = 400 gm. If one grapefruit = 400 gm then four grapefruit = 4×400 and this = 1600 gm.

Summary: overall this question was very hard becaue I did not really get the concept of it.

Answer: 1600.



Catfish air bombers flew threw the air, bombing everything in sight. The goldfish  tourght that all they had to do was bow down to their new rulers, but there was an upriseing getting ready to pounce on the catfish forces led by one unlikley hero and his name is Dan!

Dan started to run right threw all that smoke of bombing in the land of goldfish. He had no idea  what was going on until he smacked into a giant pole and fell down a pothole.

When he awoke he found himself lying down on a bench in a room that was full of medical stuff. He saw a door at the end of the room so he got up and walked over to it and opened the door to see a goldfish secret base! A man walked up to him and said that he was now apart of a serect organizaton to stop the catfish from taking over the world.

Dan could not beleave his ears, suddenly there was a lage bang and the base shook! The explosion created a cloud of smoke and when it cleard it reaveled a ghastly figure, it was Dr. Fatso the leader of the catfish!

But when Dr. Fatso looked up, all the goldfish had already left the base! The goldfish were in there hot air balloons and on there way to bomb the catfish and finish this war forever , but there was one problem there was a giant cannon at the catfish base and it had already shot down  three air balloons!
