Science project 5

              Science project 5
week 5.                                Flight
                  Here today I am talking about what I learnt about flight
In week 5 we learnt all about flight. I had always wondered, is gliding the same as flying. Well no it isn't.  With flying it is something that has control over its movement. And with gliding it is something that has no control over its movements. Are you wondering who controls the gliding movement. Well it is the wind that moves it around. I learnt that thrust is the forward force which required to move a plane through the air. With drag it is a force that acts against thrust and also slows the plane down. With lift it is a force that helps the plane go up and stay up. With weight it is a force that helps the plane go down. I wonder what would happen to a plane if it had none of these forces. This week I learnt about what the 4 forces are on a plane and what they are for. I learnt the difference between flying and gliding. My data gathering is multistructural.

week 4.                                       Trebuchet/catapult
In week 4 we used a trebuchet which is like a catapult. I noticed that the heavier it was, the further it would go. I was surprised how far it went for the first time because I have never seen a trebuchet/catapult, it was my first time seeing one. The furthest one was 9 bars (not sure what the bars were made out of.) We had used a tennis ball which was the one that had got shot and it had gone 22.2 metres. I was wondering, if it was a hockey ball instead of tennis ball it might not go far because of the weight of the hockey ball compared to a tennis ball. My data gathering is at relational because in my text I am explaining what has happened.

Week 3.                                          Rocket balloon
In week 3 we did a balloon rocket just like week 2 but instead we used different equipment this week. Last week we used 2 chairs, 1 long strip of wool string and 2 straws. Week 3 we used 2 chairs 1 long strip of fishing wire/line and ¼ of A4 piece of paper (we had to use at least ¼ piece of paper.)
But since I wasn't there I am predicting what had happened. I predict that it wouldn't have gone far because of the weight on the balloon.

Science project 2

                                    Science project 2
Tuesday 23 May 2017                                          Balloon rocket
Week 2. Balloon rocket
Equipment: 2 straws 1 long strip of wool and 2 chairs.
It all started with 2 straws, 1 long strip of wool and 2 chairs and the first thing Zoe and I did, was ask Mrs  Pageot “how do you do this?” Zoe and I thought let's go look at what other people have done, so we did. We started to get an idea for what to do.So firstly we had to put the straws through the wool we were struggling to get it through. So we asked Mrs Pageot to see if she could help. She said “you can cut it smaller if you want” so we said “that's a GREAT idea. Thankyou Mrs Pageot.”We gave it a shot but it didn't really work, we were really stuck with the first step. So we told Mrs Pageot “Mrs Pageot, we can't get the straw through the strip of wool and we have tried to cut it smaller and we still can't do it. Can you try.” But instead she gave us some fishing line, it was way much easier to get the straw through the fishing line. So off to the next step Which is to get the chairs to sit opposite each other. The third step was to tie the fishing line onto the chair. Fourth step was to blow the balloon up and then tape it to the straw and then observe the distance, the shape, the sound and the movement of the balloon. With the movement Zoe I observed that it had looked like a slingshot, fast and it had spun around. With the sound it was like a wooly cushion and it sounded like someone was farting. With the shape it looked like a normal balloon blown up and a round oval. With the distance it had gone all the way to the other chair which was 1 meter.

Monday 22 may 2017                                                                                         Slimming Mr Anderson

Week 1. Making slime (Monday)
Early hours in the morning I had arrived at school and I had seen everyone crowding in both rooms looking at discussing awful smelly slime. My friends had grabbed me by the arm and said “Anne Anne Anne look Mrs Pageot and Miss Smith are making slime.” I started to think what's the slime for. So I went to check out the slime. I asked Miss Smith “what's the slime for?” She said “All the classes are making slime to pour over Mr Anderson” then there went the bell so we all headed down to the hall. There were people sitting down across the step with a bucket filled with discussing awful smelly slime. Firstly everyone explained about their slime that there class/teachers made. And next up was pouring the slime on top of Mr Anderson. He Tangata/room 16 were up first to pour their smelly slime on top of Mr Anderson. Guess what happened when Finn had poured the slime over Mr Anderson, it had just gone plop like a poop. In this slimming Mr Anderson thing I learnt how to make oblique because I have never made oblique before and I have always wondered how to make it.
On the rubrics, I think I am at relational because I am explaining what I did, what it looked like, and can describe what has happened.
