What’s The Matter ( Oil Tankers )

Introduction 

What’s the matter project was a project where we researched and learned about some man-made disasters. I chose to do oil tankers because it seems really bad for the environment. I was interested in how it affected the environment. I researched it and found most of my information from google. Oil is a big part of Canada as we use it every day for example we use gas for cars and heating up our home.

My Project:

The oil comes from beneath the ground. It is made of dead animal and plant matter, buried deep under layers of sedimentary rock. Pressure and heat cause oil deposits to form over long periods of time.

These bacteria break the oil into carbon dioxide and water. Some will evaporate (moving the pollution from water to air).

None of this information was surprising, most of it I already knew.

 

Wonder Choice Board Activity

This is my right up about Treacher Collins syndrome:

30 Points Question: Treacher Collins syndrome is a disorder that causes the ears, eyes, cheekbones, and chin to appear deformed. The severity may be different for different people. Things that could happen include breathing problems, problems seeing, cleft palate, and hearing problems. People who have it usually have normal intelligence. Treacher Collins syndrome cannot be cured. Diagnosis is based on X-rays and possibly genetic testing. Symptoms can be overcome by reconstructive surgery, hearing aids, speech therapy, and other devices.

 

Treacher Collins syndrome is caused by genetic mutations. Below is an image of the pattern of gene codes of this syndrome.

The percent of the world that has this syndrome is estimated to be between 1 in 10,000-50,000 individuals in the general population. One of the sad things about having a facial deformity is that a person is more likely to get bullied. 

 

Fortunately, people with this condition do have a normal life span, as long as they maintain a healthy lifestyle.

UBC Bottle Cap

What  gets wasted 300 Million times a year? If you guessed plastic you are correct! You don’t need to throw out plastic when you’re done using it. You can make something out of it for example. I have created a new kind of bottle cap that is easier and more useful than normal ones. It’s called U.B.C. It stands for Useful Bottle Cap. It is called U.B.C because it is more useful than normal bottle caps. You should DEFINITELY buy my U.B.C bottle cap

You are definitely missing out if you’re not buying it. It is a real life changer. You can use it on any kind of bottle, just get the kind that is perfect for you! It opens better, it closes better, and it even has a smaller chance to spill, unlike normal bottle caps. I don’t know why people throw out plastic when you could make something out of it. 

People don’t care about wasting plastic, it’s ruining the environment and killing sea creatures. We have to stop. The way to do that is NOT by throwing out plastic when you’re done with it. Make something out of it, do something   useful with it. I could tell you so many reasons why you should not throw out plastic but I will be going on forever. 

    All I’m saying is that people should stop throwing plastic out, it makes no sense why they would and we need them to stop. If you’re someone who throws out plastic, you are killing the ocean and it’s not fair. WE HAVE TO MAKE A CHANGE!

Rocks And Minerals Science Experiment

THIS IS MY BLOG ABOUT ROCKS AND MINERALS                                                                      (We Became Cookieologists)

A Geologist Is Someone Who Discovers And Reserches Minerals And Different Rocks. Here Is A Video Too Show How

Supplies:

  • Tooth Picks
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie

Excavating Requirements:

  • Before excavating draw the top and the bottom of what the cookie looks like.
  • Predict how many chocolate chips you can find.
  • Remove the chocolate chips from the top of ther cookie.
  • Remove the chocolate chips from the bottom of ther cookie.

Predictions:

  • I will find 7 chocolate chips on the top of the cookie.
  • I will find 6 chocolate chips on the bottom of the cookie.

Views of The Cookie Before The Excavation.

Data Collected:

  • I found 6 chocolate chips on the top of the cookie
  • I found 5 chocolate chips on the top of the cookie

Conclusion

I was one off every time because of the ones inside.

Innovation Day Science Project

My Innovation Day project is based on the Grade 4 science unit of Pulleys. We have learnt about fixed and moveable pulleys. I used a fixed pulley system for my project because it was on a sick so it was not a movable pulley.

For my hypothesis, I said: “I think it might work because of the total of four pulleys. Three big ones and one small one. The big pulleys connect to each other. They do that because when the stick gets pulled, it pulls the pulleys that pull the road up. The small pulley connects the stick to the big pulleys.”

This is a video for how to make a simple drawbridge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah-l88JAAaE&t=172s&ab_channel=OliverThiel

Here are my results:

My conclusion is:                                                                                                                      My hypothesis was incorrect because I realised that the only way to connect the pulleys to the structure was to either hot glue it to one of the sides or to tape it. They both would have made it unable to spin/move/turn.

Legend Writing

Once upon a time, there was a huge village called Bobby Store. Bobby Store had very new technology like vibranium. Bobby Store had an evil king. The king was named King Bobby. Before King Bobby came to Bobby Store, he lived in China with his mom. Now that King Bobby was in Bobby Store he lived in a palace. The place looked big, long, tall, and strong. It looked like it has been through wars and has survived. The palace had a massive basement that had thousands of trophies that he had stolen. He also made his palace stronger by using money from gambling.

The problem was that the village was at war. This was because they had the newest technology and the world was jealous. The only way for the people to stay safe was to come to King Bobby’s palace. They did not want to stay with the evil king because they were worried that the king world do something terrible to them.

The village people tried to place traps around the palace, but the problem was that the other town would see the traps and just walk around them. They had to figure out another way to stop them.

Then a hero named WaterChicken came to Bobby Store to help them with the war. WaterChicken was strong and tall. People thought he could help them. WaterChicken had a plan. His plan was to use some of the vibranium that they had, so, they could make a big wall so intruders can not get in. In the end the other town just used a ladder to get over the wall.

BobbyStore people gave some of their vibranium to the other town so they would not be under attack. They also shared their technology to the rest of the world.

BobbyStore and the whole world lived happily ever after. From that day since they never had a war again. They made friends with the world.
