|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
In Mr.Solarz' class we had global lit.circles. My partner and I read the book candy wars.In Candy Wars the main characters are James and Emily.They are brother and sister and they get sucked into a portal to another world (the world of Tooth fairies and candy monsters)! The trick is that they got sucked in at different times so end up being completely against each other. But which side is good? You will see that a sibling may do anything to win.
On Wednesday January 30th 2013 my class and I went on a field trip to the field museum in Chicago. The first part of our day we learned how the earth was created and how animals and plants were created.I thought it was worth taking the day of of school because I always had questions on how are earth came to be, so it answered most of my questions about earth. I think mars might turn out like earth because it's a red planet and before life on earth there was a bunch of volcanic eruptions that made the atmosphere poisonous and the air red. Since mars air is poisonous it might turn out like earth. The most interesting thing I learned was that the atmosphere was poisonous and that there was absolutely no life!
In the afternoon we met a scientists that studied metorites. he told us all about the different types and how long ago they landed and we got to touch one! This was totally worth taking the day of for because I always had a lot of questions about space and the scientist, Jim, answered most of them.The most interesting thing I learned was that over the years we have been detecting more and more meteorites close to Earth. We should invest money on studying meteorites because we could learn more about whats out there in space.
