Science journal

Week 3
Jye and I did the balloon rocket experiment with paper. The first time I tried with paper it went 4 metres. It moved like a jet plane and it made a farting noise. The second time I tried with paper it still made the same noise. It moved like a cat running full speed it went 2 metres. The third time I tried with paper it popped. It went nowhere,  0 metres.

Science journal

Week 1:
Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
After today's experiment I gathered some data: the slime can be more slimy than hard. So we added more water into it and it felt more like slime. The next problem with the slime is that it smelled like rotten cheese so we added vanilla essence.

Week 2:
Today at science Jye and I made a rocket balloon. We used string a balloon and a straw. The string was not really good - the first time that we tried it failed it didn't go anywhere. The balloon was like the shape of a rugby ball, it sound like a screaming elephant. I was reliable because I was doing all the writing.

Responsible citizen

At the start of the term, I knew one or two things about what a responsible citizen did. A responsible citizen would pick up rubbish and clean up after them self.

Now I think I am relational because I pick up rubbish, care for people and help people and I am a radio DJ. A responsible citizen does not only pick up rubbish, they care for others and help people.

I think that my project about how be a responsible dog and cat owner will help people because it will help them be a responsible citizen and maybe a responsible pet owner.

My challenge was to do all of the research to see what I needed to find.

Over all my project went wall even that needed to do all the research.

responsible citizen

A responsible citizen is a person who helps people and follows the law. If you're not yet a responsible citizen, this will give you advice. A responsible citizen cares for others. If you didn't, people would get upset and even could go crazy. A responsible citizen cleans up after themselves so the environment is clean. One responsible citizen is Mrs Bentall- when we would go out for a game, Mrs Bentall would walk around with us. If she saw rubbish she would pick it up.

Another way to be a responsible citizen is to help people.

It is important  to be a responsible citizen so we can help our world.

One sunny afternoon I was on my way to YMCA, in my school clothes.  When I arrived there, I changed into my gym clothes.  I started with some warm ups so I could get my body into it. Then I go hard. I run, balance, focus, swing, cartwheel, rollypoly, back bend, and walkover, everything. Even when I fall off the rings, so I still love it.  I am working as hard as I can so I can reach my goals.

Rubbish speech

As you may remember, on the 27th of july we collected data of the rubbish distribution around Waimairi School before and after lunchtime.We recorded this data on a map of the school and made observations of where all the rubbish was accumulating. We also made inferences about how the rubbish got there.

After we made our observations and inferences, we were left with questions as to why people in our school failed to put their rubbish in the bins! Why does so much end up back around the school after one break time? Maybe it is falling out of people's pockets? Perhaps it's the winds fault? Or maybe the students of Waimairi school are dropping it on purpose?

We, as scientists, have completed an investigation into why this is happening. On Thursday the 18th of August, we went out at morning tea and lunchtime to make observations of you all, collecting data to find out how rubbish gets on the ground.
We split up into 12 groups. At morning tea we spread ourselves around the whole school to observe. At lunchtime we spread the 12 groups around the lunch eating areas and observed what happened to the rubbish. 
We have made inferences from our observation and here is what we have found…

Our observations and inferences:  (Please answer these questions in full sentences for your presentation to another class)

On Thursday 18th of July at morning tea waimairi school dropped 205 pieces of rubbish, that's 2 out of 5 people on average, who dropped rubbish.110 pieces of rubbish were dropped on purpose, and 46 pieces of rubbish were dropped without realising! 
We think that most people did this because people think that they can hide it, or get away with dropping it. And they do get away with it! Why don't people take a little walk over to the bin to put their rubbish in? 

At lunch time 79 pieces of rubbish were dropped on purpose, and 44 was left where they were eating, that's 1 out of every 5 people in the school, that is a large amount of people to be dropping rubbish This is rather astounding, because even at lunch time when you were sitting down waiting for the bell to ring you managed to get away with dropping the rubbish. Also leaving rubbish were they were eating was quite popular. This disgusted us. We're they put it is yet another mystery. Still unanswered.
