|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
Today we did a breathing through straws experiment we used two different straws. We used coffee stirring straws as the really thin or small straw. And then we used just a regular drinking straw as the second straw. One of the really hard ways to breath through the straws were doing jumping jacks with the normal sized straw and then it was really hard to breath through the smaller straws while we wrer sitting down. It was hard because, the smaller straws make you breath deeper and use more air. Then using the wide straws caused deep breathing after the jumping jacks in place. Breathing through the thin straw was so different then doing it with the wide straw because it could only hold so much air at a time. Changes do happen when you are breathing through the straws while doing different activities because depending on what you do it makes you use more air to breath through the straws.
In class we do this thing right before lunch for about 15-20 minutes. One thing I do during passion time is I love to read so I am reading a book called Runaway Twin by one of my favorite authors of all time. I am also reading Running Out of Time for lit. circles. I have read Among the Hidden also by her and there are many other books I can not wait to read written by her! I also just started to read The Candy makers by: Wendy Mass, she is an excellent author she has also written Eleven Birthdays too! And this is what I do in passion time.
I think we spent so much time learning about the causes of the revolutionary war because first it is important to learn about Americas history and/or time line. Second is that we will need this information in the future.
These effects that happened can have multiple causes like the Boston Massacre. There was the colonists making fun of the British by calling them "lobster backs". Then who could forget the British wounding 6 colonists and killing 5 colonists. And the colonists not getting a part in the laws that the British make. Another couple causes is the Tea Act, Stamp Act, and the Sons of Liberty were some of the other causes of the Revolutionary War. One huge cause of the war is when the British soldiers moved to the land sent from England or the king.
