In class today I had to pick a job that involved water and I chose being a biologist. I learned a lot about what biologists do. I learned that they: study living cells and organisms and how they live in the environment. I also learned that some biologists do a simple research try to discover underlying mechanisms that decide how organisms work. They also study the organisms and how living things affect their environment or their habitat. Not only do they do that but they also study humans, plants, animals, and the environments in which they live. They may conduct their studies--human medical research, plant research, animal research, environmental system research-at the cellular level or the ecosystem level or anywhere in between. Biologists are students of the world, interested in learning from every facet of life.

What would your life be without water?
(1) I wouldn't be living right now if it wasn't for water. Why? Because water carries tons of nutrients that our bodies need. If our cells don't have any water nutrients we would die.
What would the lives of animals or plants be like without water?
(2) All plants would wither up because of too much sunlight and no water. We get all of our fruits and vegetables from plants and we wouldn't have that. Animals would die because they also need water for their bodies. Animals are also a big part of what we eat.
What do we need to do to have water in our lives?
(3) We would need to recycle, reduce the usage, reuse, make sure not to litter, and save water by not using it when you are brushing your teeth.
What makes water an interesting topic to learn about?
(4) Water is interesting because we can find it almost anywhere, it's a natural clear liquid that is necessary for all forms of life.
Why would it be important to scientists to study water?
(5) Scientists need to study water because they need to make sure that there is no shortage of water so we can have water for the future generations. They also need to find new technologies to drill wells and to clean used water, to conserve water. Maybe they can find a way to make salt water into fresh water.
If the are fluent and know what there are talking about that makes the audience understand a little bit more. They also need the readers to read along so if the readers can't read along because of the font or the color of the writing it's harder to follow along. Some people didn't write a lot so you don't know that much about the subject they were teaching. If they are writing about a person they might want to say their inspiration or why they wanted to do that.
Sound: When I poured my water into my friends cup, the water made a trickling sound like a waterfall. The noise was peaceful and the cup made it sound a little more deeper then it would in a pool or in a large container of water. I realized that when there was less water it made more noise than when there was a lot of water. It also sounded like slight drizzling.
Look: If you looked at it at an angle it looked lighter at the bottom and middle of the cup and it looked like the countertop surface at the top. The color of my water was clear, there were two bubbles in my water. If you looked at it closely it reminded me of a blurry magnifying glass.
Smell: It smells as if you were in a waterpark. It smells like it can from a fresh stream or a river. It smells clean and fresh. The smells doesn't seem artificial.
Feel: It makes my fingers feel soggy. It's cool to the touch. Water doesn't immediately get of my finger as I pull it out of the water.
Taste: Trickels down my throat. I had bad after taste. Water is in between room temperature and cold.
Ice: Ice is WAY colder than the water. Ice is frozen, water is not. Water is all over the place. Ice does not stick to your fingers.
Vapor: Vapor is chilly and steamy at the same time. Smells dirty and looks like fog or hot steam. It was floating in the air. The vapor was barely visable.
Over spring break I went to a waterpark resort in Wisconsin Dells named Chula Vista. We were about to go on a awesome slide. I stepped into the chilled clear water. As soon as my toe touched the water I felt a tingling sensation shooting up my spine like a rocket. I popped myself into the front seat of the tube while my friend Abi (12) sat herself in the back seat of the bright green tube. I held on to the side railing while we giggled and chatted about how fun this jungle adventure ride was going to be. Apparentaly this was also called the toilet because in the middle of the ride you spin around like you are in a toilet being flushed. After you are done spinning for about ten seconds you plop down to the hole in the middle of the toilet. "Wooooohoooooooo!!!!," I yelped in terror and excitment at the same time. Abi did the excact same thing. There were neon lights everywhere and me and Abi both agreed that it felt like we were in a circus or a carnival. We rushed down the hole and I could feel my hair fly in Abi's face. Water was splashing everywhere and I felt like my body was a water magnet. As we hit the pool with a thump, we knew that this was the end of the ride.
