Let’s save paper

Recycle Logo From Recycling Bin

save paper save trees.

Have you ever wondered how much paper people waste? People waste
70 million papers each year in the U.S.A. Well people waste lots of paper for no reason and I think that’s a waste of paper and a waste of trees! If you want to waste paper you better recycle it instead of  throwing it in the trash can. We shouldn’t waste paper because it’s better for us humans in my personal experience.

When people print they should use both sides of a paper instead of using  one paper. We also waste paper on classwork, homework,and jobs. In my personal experience is that I often waste paper when I run too many copies. I often make copies of things that I end up not using too.

We should save more paper because when we don’t it kills the beauty of trees and it matters because it kills lots of trees. We should also save paper because its better for our environment and helps stores with paper. People should also save paper because its a less of a cost.

What are ways to save paper? Wasting paper needs to stop. (Ways to save paper) You can save paper by using both sides of a paper. Other ways to save paper is to really shorten receipts  because at a lot of stores they give you these really long receipts and at some gasoline stations they ask you if you want your receipts or not, and I like that about the gasoline stations. The last way is recycling paper and use energy instead.

Saving paper really helps our environment,and animals. Also around the world we use 1 million tons of paper every day, that’s a lot !The world would feel less costly if we were to use less paper.

Beautiful San Diego

San  Diego is a very interesting place. It has lot of interesting places to visit like the San Diego Zoo or Sea World. There’s Belmont Park in Mission Beach in San Diego by the beach. San Diego also has a lot of beaches because we are right by the Pacific Ocean . Two places I like to go to are Balboa Park and Legoland.

San Diego has lots of beaches like Mission Beach, Torrey Pines State Beach, Pacific Beach, Silver Strand, and La Jolla Shores beach. That’s alot of San Diego beaches. A beach is a good place to go if you like to surf and boogie board or it is a really hot day. In San Diego it usually has a warm climate so it is good to be by a beach or water.

Belmont Park owns the only wooden roller coaster in the U.S.A. It has four main rides. It is called the fun zone that includes the Giant Dipper (the roller coaster), the beach blaster, the bumper cars, and the Vertical Tarro. Belmont Park has a lot of both with lots of fun games and there are also both with great food and snacks.

Sea World is a marine mammal park. Sea World has a mall, shows, hotels, and a new water park. How cool is that! Sea World has water related animals, like otters, and ocean related animals, like whales and sharks.SeaWorld is related to Aquatica. Sea World opened in 1964 in the southern side of mission bay. In 1980 Sea World became the first zoological park with ocean animals in the world.

The San Diego Zoo has lots of animals you could look at. It has apes, monkeys, lions, bears, birds, pandas, polar bears, elephants, reptiles, amphibians, desert tortoise, cats, condors, plants, insects,  and other animals. My favorite thing at the zoo is the pandas.

One of the most popular malls in San Diego is the U T C mall. It is a very large mall with many stores and stands. The stands are actually really cool because they have stands for phone cases, brochures for vacations, and many other things. U T C also has a very fancy movie theater called Ark light that plays old movies like Grease. You can even reserve your seat before the movie starts.

Balboa Park is a landscape of arts and cultures. It has a very big museum with great paintings and sculptures. Balboa Park is not just a museum it also has a kids place where there is a fake grocery store a little  houses. There is even a little class for kids to learn about science. Balboa Park was built for the World’s Fair in 1915-16.

Legoland is a  theme park in northern San Diego where everything is made of legos. They have rides and cool exhibits. They have a ride called  Project X where you go up a big hill and then you whoosh down the other side really fast. There’s a miniature city made out of legos too.

San Diego is a fabulous place to live and there is so much to do. We are lucky to live here. What fun things do you have to do in your town?

Woodrats

 

Wood rat

Rose Canyon is full of wild animals. Some are large and some are small. One of the small ones is a wood rat.There are 3 different type wood rats in California its desert wood rat, white throated wood rat and dusky footed wood rat.Wood rats are bigger than mice and i would also say cutter then rats.  The wood rat lives in low hot dry deserts or live in dens the dens can be made out of sticks or twigs. Wood rats look a little different from normal rats but they are still rodents.Wood rats can have two different names one of them is Pack rats and the other one is called trade rats. Do you know why they call them pack rats?They call them pack rats because they get stuff and they never get rid of it and the word pack means never get rid of.

Wood rats are small rodents. Each kind of wood rat looks a little different by color and size. The Dusky Wood rats are about 11 to 16 inches long and weigh about 10 to 16 ounces.  That’s about the size of a regular ruler and as heavy as two i Phones. The color of wood rats can be black and grey. Wood rats have large oval ears. They have pink noses and round, black eyes.  They live for about three years.

Wood rats eat twigs, seeds, fruits,acorns,cactus,nuts,berries, and roots but be careful because they are going to try to eat your food.

Who loves soccer?

Soccer is a popular sport. Why? It’s good exercise and fun. It’s also fun to watch your favorite team. Lots of people play soccer and soon if they keep playing they can become a really good or maybe even a famous soccer player!

Soccer is a good way to exercise because you sweat in soccer, and you run back and forth. That means you need lots of water. Before a game people drink water, eat a good healthy snack, and get a good night’s sleep to be prepared for their game.

If you ever are going to play soccer you have to wear the right gear. You need cleats, long socks, and shin guards to protect yourself when something hits you hard.

A lot of people do soccer for fun. Especially famous soccer players. I am going to show you two soccer teams. The one on the bottom is called  LA  Galaxy. The one on the top is called Mexico.

People in for Mexico cheer for the team Mexico because they are from Mexico but not always. They can cheer for different teams too. People in Los Angeles like to watch and cheer for LA Galaxy.

Lots of famous soccer players use the ball called a jabulani because that ball does not have patches or hexagons. We can use many different type of soccer balls. Here are some balls that we were talking about that have no patches.

Do you like soccer? Why?

Exploding Glove

Our class in B12 did a chemical reaction. It was awesome! I’m not going to tell you about it now. I’m going to show you the video first. Enjoy the video!

Now that you saw the video I’ll tell you how we did it. In the video the glove inflated because the vinegar and baking soda mixed and there was a chemical reaction. It brought CO2 or carbon dioxide.We thought the glove was going to explode as it grew bigger. There was a glove over the bottle and the gas was so strong it popped the glove!

How did we do it? First, we put 10 ml of baking soda in a rubber glove. After, we put 200 ml of vinegar in a empty water bottle. Next,we put a rubber band around where the cap is supposed to be, then tucked the opening of the glove under the rubber band. After we shook the water bottle and the glove started to get bigger as it filled with gas…and then it POPPED! Finally, the glove got all the C02 (carbon dioxide) out of the bottle.

We want to try this again with five times as much baking soda and vinegar and a large balloon. What do you think?

Cell Phones

I think children should have cell phones. If children had cell phones they would be safer, could help when there are accidents, and keep in touch their with parents.  That’s why I think you should let young children have a cell phone.

Cell phones can help children to be safer. If a child got lost he could use his cell phone to call home. Also If you are on the bus and you do not know where the bus is going you would need to call your mom, or you are at your friends house and you guys are jumping on the bed and we fall of  the bed you would need to call your mom to tell her and if it is the first day of school and you were walking to school.

For example this is way you can have a phone for an accident if  you go to your friend’s house and if you guys have too much fun your head can hurt or if you eat too much you will not feel good and you will have to call your mom to say that you went to the hospital because your finger almost broke. You would need to call. Also if you are jumping in the bed you can hurt yourself.

Here is a reason you should have a phone so you can keep touch with your parents. If you go to the park and you say mom I will run left and you run right that way I can meet you at the park. When you do a mile and you got lost you would need to tell your mom or dad i’m lost. I don’t know where i’m at and they told you keep in touch with me. That would be another reason to.Here is another reason you should have a phone just to keep in touch.  If you go to six flags and you go on a ride and you got lost after you got of you would need to call your mom.

I think you should just have phones to keep in touch with your parents and also because they need to be safe and also if there is an accident. All those 3 reasons that i just gave you those are the reasons you should have a phone at school home if your with your friends and all those places you go.What do you think should we have phones for safety  accidents and keeping in touch with your parents?
