I think that the water will fall in the water then just "blend" with the rest.
I think that the water will dry up when it is on the sand for a while.
I think the water will sort of bounce a little, then flow to the bottom of the cup.
I think that the water will get soaked by the dirt, similar to a towel.
I think what happened with the dirt will happen with the rug.
The grass is like dirt, so I expect the same. But it might appear a bit more moist.
The drops of water, when they met the water in the cup, made bubbles and morphed in with the water in the cup.
What happened is that the water dried up a little, but it also eroded the sand and made a crater.
The water turned the concrete a little darker, and just laid there. You could see a little puddle on the concrete.
I was right! The dirt soaked up the water. Of course, the dirt was a little moist afterwards.
The water was soaked up more like a towel than the dirt.
I was correct! It was a lot like dirt. It did look more wet then the dirt, like I predicted.
I knew that the water would become a part of the water, but I didn't know about the bubbles that it made! That made me a little surprised.
You could see where the water landed because the sand turned a little darker. I think that some of the water went in the sand.
Nothing like I thought happened! I didn't know the concrete would appear dark. And I didn't know the water wouldn't bounce!
I didn't know I would be right. The dirt soaked the water like a towel, just like I predicted!
I thought what would happen with the dirt would happen with the rug, but with the rug, you couldn't see where you dropped water!
It was a huge surprise when I saw the grass more moist. I predicted that, but I didn't know it would be that moist.
My organism to study water uses for is a human.
Five ways that living things use water are:
1. Some mammals groom themselves with it.
2. All animals drink water.
3. Most animals clean themselves with it.
4. Flying birds use water for flying.
5. Fish use water to breathe.
I would say on passion projects nice stuff like "Good Job!", then I would add something I liked about it.
1. My life would not even exist about water. You need water to survive.
2. Animals and plants, like humans, need water to survive. Like us, they wouldn't exist without water.
3. To have water in our lives, we need to drink. My brother has gotten dehydrated before because he wasn't drinking a lot.
4. Water is interesting to learn about because it has a lot of properties that we don't apply to water when we first hear them, but if you really think about water, you apply a lot of things that you've never thought of. I made another blog about this!
5. It is important for scientists to study water because water can be used for many different things. It is also necessary for most life.
Sound: Pouring water sounds like a low whistle that gets higher and higher as the cup get more filled. It reminds me of the slide whistles we heard in early morning band. It also sounds like stuff sloshing around in your mouth. It is a bubbly, sloshy, splashy sound.
Appearance: It is see-through, and it wobbles around in the glass. It sort of distorts what you see through it. Occasionally there is bubbles in it, and they look like little tiny marbles. Even if you so much as gently tap the table it is on, it vibrates. Like curved mirrors, if you look through water, sometimes the things behind it look stretched out, sometimes they look squished down.
Smell and Taste: It smells fresh, and almost chlorine-y. It smells like it tastes, natural and nothing else. It seems like it would taste refreshing, judging from the smell. The taste reminds me of lemons because it has a hint of that bitter, sour taste. It tastes natural, or at least we would imagine it to be. It seems like it doesn't have anything added to it, because it has only one taste. It never tastes different, like brazil nuts and walnuts.
Texture: It feels smooth and soft. When touch water, it is not like touching a brick. You have more freedom feeling water, because you can stick your hand into it, unlike any solid. When you take your hand out, some water stays on and decides to hitch a ride. Water can feel cold or hot, and is usually refreshing to feel.
Ice, on the other hand, makes a crushing noise when you move it around. It is not clear, but it is not completely opaque either. It smells cold, and tastes like a cold, bitter lemon coated in water. It feels really cold, and is both smooth and rough.
Vapor makes a "wooooooh" noise, and sounds like air. It is clear, but you can see it from close-up. It smells like terrariums in zoos. It tastes like how it smells. It is cold
The summer after fourth grade, I was at a community water park. Only our friend's friends (which included my cousins) were there because they reserved it. A few people were trying out the slide and diving boards, but few people were on the high dives. I decided to dare myself and try the high dive. I walked up, and rethought what I was doing. Should I really do this? I asked myself. I decided no. Then Mallory, who was a year older than me, walked up behind me and told me to try the high dive. I told her I wasn't going to. Then things started going crazy. Everybody else was daring me to do it! I decided I had no choice. I went up…to the top…and stood at the base of the high dive. "Okay," I sighed, "I'm doing this." I got to the middle of the board and asked if it hurt. Mallory's older sister said no, unless you do a belly flop or a back flop. That got me kind of paranoid. "I'm not doing this," I declared. Everybody, of course, begged me to do it. "Fine," I muttered. I jump, making sure not to do a belly flop. And, just my luck, I landed on my belly. "OW!" I sort of screamed. I limped over to my parents, sat down for about three zeptoseconds, and rushed back, deciding I'd do it again. I tried one more time, doing a jackknife in order to prevent me from doing a belly flop again. It was really fun!
We made thinglinks about our Revolutionary War Projects! Hover over something and click—it is a link! It will take you to videos about the different parts of the poster.
Phillis Wheatley is famous for making lots of poems that influenced the Revolutionary War. Mr. Solarz had us do this because for us to learn a lot of 21st century skills.
