Water is important to engineering because engineers control water by building things like dams and canals. Engineers plan how they can clean dirty water and design things that generate power or electricity from water. Without water Engineers could not do there job, they would not have anything to work. Water generates electricity with the help of the engineers and there would not be as much electricity in the world without water in an engineers job. Engineers also get supplies of water and produce it into human use. Preventing water floods is a problem for the engineers to solve in the future. Many of waters way of damaging things have been solved with the job of engineering.
(1) My life without water would be very dry and dull the whole earth would be an unpleasant desert. I would be very thirsty all the time and I would get really hot without rain. Life being sticky and hot all the time would be terrible. The hot weather without rain would cause a lot of sweat and a lot of moaning.
(2) The lives for plants would not exist without water and the animals would probably have the same miserable life.
The only thing for animals to drink is pretty much water. In order for plants to grow in the first place they need water. Water is extremely important even though water is ever so simple.
(3) To have water in our lives we need to keep the planet green. By green I mean when we look around in seconds we should be able to see plants, bushes, and things growing everywhere and in some cases animals. We should not be able to see any type of garbage or waste on the ground. In order for this to happen we should always turn off any water sources when necessary
(4) Water is an interesting topic when you really dig deep into how water works, how it is around the earth, and how water is created all the time. If you take time, observe water and experiement you think of more questions then eventually have a real passion for water
(5) It would be important for scientists to study water because water is formed in our planet. Scientists might find something interesting about water and what it does. Water is really a fascinating subject even though its been around for literally forever.
I think that we should give the presenter feedback on how good they talked to the audience and how well they explained what they researched and what they were trying to figure out. The Passion project should also be presented by both researchers (if had a partner) to show that both participants had time well spent. If writing a paper or a blog in some cases should not copy and paste words from websites you should read the passage and put it in your own words to show your knowledge and that you can explain everything without the blog or paragraph. When presenting your project I think that along the way you should explain what this information got you thinking father and what led you to more questions. The paragraph presentation style would be how well the paragraph was put together and what information was needed to answer (if the passion question was answered). I think people should think about what amount of work was down in the amount given and if it took much effort.
Sounds: As I poured the water in my partner's cup I heard little smooth trickles of the water clashing against each other reminding me of a peaceful waterfall glistening down a cliff. As the water sped up it sounded like when my mom turns on the watering hose and when it sinks down into the grass. If the cups were empty it made a deep sound kind of like when I lightly hit a drum.
Looks: When I hit the table that the cup is on the water looks as if someone were to through a little pebble into a lake causing little rings of ripples around the center. When I shake the cup back and forth it looks as if there was just a boat rocking on the surface making the water to sway back and forth. When I keep the cup still the water lays very peacefully but still looks like the water still has tiny movements.
Smells: When I take a sniff of the faucet water I smell something very thin and fresh but yet somehow smelled cold. I could smell a clear ocean breeze.
Taste: As I drank the water it tasted very clear, and pure. The water felt very crisp and thin. When it entered my mouth it did not take very much effort to swallow it.
Feel: When I draped my finger into the clear liquid I could feel the thin cold substance wrap, and fit my finger. When I take a sip of the water and when it touched my lips I felt a cold shiver travel across my body. The air is easier I think to move your hand around in than to move your finger around in the water. The water whipped onto my fingerprint.
How is ice different from water?
I noticed immediately that ice is much colder than water and ice is much harder and has a bumpy texture. You cannot stick your finger in ice like you can with water and ice is not as clear as water it is more foggy. When you eat ice you cannot fully close your mouth you have to bite and chew before you swallow but with water you just have to swallow, there is no need to bite.
How is water vapor different from water?
Water vapor is very thin and hard to see. Water vapor is a gas and water is liquid. You can only breath in water vapor and not water. Water vapor rises and water stays in the place that it is. Water vapor only occurs when the water is quite warm. Water can be poured back in fourth or anywhere in a couple seconds and water vapor does not get poured that quickly.
On Wednesday we got to the Field Museum! It was really fun. We got to learn everything about the earth's development from four billion years ago to now in 2013. This field trip was definitely worth taking a day off of school, we got to touch the oldest thing on earth!! We saw all the types of weather that was present in that time period. I am very lucky that I live now! The weather was really humid wet sticky and uncomfortable. We saw a huge centipede, it was a tall as me. It looked big and descusting. I learned a lot. I noticed that there was poisonous steam coming out of water because of
Almost every Friday I go to Olympic Indoor Pool. It is a nice place with a pool for probably more toward smaller kids, then when you travel down the hallway you get to the main area which is where the main pool is where bigger kids usually like to swim so that they can actually fit there whole bodies under water. There is also a swim well where it is deep so people can dive. I was in the main pool with my younger and older sister being very playful. We got the idea of having a fun quick race. We all decided on which stoke to try to beat our contestants with. Although, my older sister is a really good swimmer so she had to use the slowest stoke, breast stroke. All tree of us swam to the wall getting pumped up for the race. I scrunched up tight, practically touching my nose to the surface of the water getting a waft of cloreine in my face. "OK, ready set".........GO! "swoosh" we all burst of the wall getting the best start we could. The water rinsed through my hair and my fingers, as soon as I started to slow down from my release of the wall I jolted up my hand and started to attempt free style. I bent my arm slicing through the water while whipping my feet up and down. I tilted my head to the side realizing I was ahead but not by much I needed to speed up. I put myself on mox speed noticing I wasn't very far from the wall. I was then close enough to the wall so I stretched out as far as I could finishing my race. We all threshed ourselves out of the water, took off our tight goggles, then soon after that debating who has won first place. Of course that stayed un-determined for a while.
Lydia Darragh is my hero for the Revolutionary War. Lydia is famous for saving George Washington and his army from an attack of the British officers. Lydia eavesdropped on the conference and got the information. Lydia had a big impact on the Revolutionary War, she prevented a terrible event of George Washington's injury. I think Mr. Solarz had me assigned to this project so that I could learn how big of an event the Revolutionary War was and how many people were involved in this war. I learned a lot about a bunch of amazing people that made an amazing impact on the war. Every single person changed and helped the turn-out of the war.
Today in class we are learning about nerves and how they send messages. We did an experiment to experience the reactions. The experiment was to hold up a plastic sheet and for your partner to through a paper ball at the sheet. While we were doing this we were observing each others reactions. When the ball was thrown at us our body responded by flinching and scrunching up our eyes. If we weren't holding up the paper we would probably jolt up our arms and try protect our eyes. I think that the nervous system reacted different then when we dropped the ruler because when we dropped the ruler we snatched up our hand in order to catch the ruler. When we got thrown at with the ball we blinked protecting our selves. But, if we didn't have the sheet I think the reaction would've been the same because we would've scrunched up our body and block the ball even though it wouldn't hurt.
Today it is 2-22-13 and we are starting our 6th mystery skype! The other class just called us, and we answered and now we are sharing some things about our class and they are sharing stuff about their school and class. We have a lot in common. I wonder where they live!?! The class let us go first we figured out that we both live in the U. S. . This class is asking interesting questions like if we were one of the first 13 colonies. We might have to copy off of them. The Wifi isn't that great but we are still doing good. We figured out that their state border the Mississippi River. We got asked if we lived in Wisconsin. They were close. Ohh now they got it! We are close to their state we know that their state starts with the letter M. Yahh! We got it they live in Minnesota! Just like our recent skype. We are now narrowing things down to what county they live in. This class is asking us about if we live North, West, South, or East of an Interstate. This might be a good strategy, but I don't know. We are getting close to the county.....Yeah we got they live in Mahnomen County!:) Now we are on the search for there city. We figured there city starts with the letters B-M. We took a guess and live in a city that starts with the letter M. Next question, Do you live in Mahnomen??" "Yes!" We got it! The other class said that we can find their school. Lets see if we can get it. OMG. We got it! Mahnomen. THe ote class is going to keep guessing. They are getting close. They got Algonquin
