This 5th grade I had really fun!!! I like learning about planets! I think there were the best. I realy did not like vocab at all. It was really hard. I cant wait till next year. I wil miss all the teachers. Science was the most fun with LA. Science all about work in teams you can learn about planets, animals, earth, plants and much more. I had so much fun this year!!

I chose this project because we didn't know what we wanted to do. I chose it to because it was one we were allowed to do. When we went to go put oranges in the butterfly garden we had oranges we waited till 2 days then we went back and checked them. In one spot there was three oranges. Two of them were gone and one was there with a million ants around and eating it. The other didn't even look like it got touched. We had four oranges there. We took those oranges and put them by the other orange. It was fun to see how they ate so quickly and there so tiny. I chose it because it was fun and interesting. I like going outside too. I wonder what's next??

Matter- Atoms : Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. Matter is made up of tiny atoms. Metal is a better conductor than wood. Rust is a chemical change. Helium is only made up of of helium atoms. If you put salt and water together it makes a solution called salt water. A helium atom has electrons. Gold is made up of one atom that is called a element. A state of matter is liquid, gas, and a solid. Wood is a better insulator than metal. Metals are good conductors of electricity.

Today I learned about Heat, Light , Electric Circuits , and Sound. A fact about Heat is even though heat itself is energy, it takes other types of energy to create heat. A fact for Light is artificial light is made when matter gives off energy in the form of light rays. Two facts about Electric Circuits is in order for electricity to be useful, we need a steady flow of it. For a circuit you need a power source, a battery, and wires. Facts about Sound travels in something called a longitude wave. Sounds travel a whole lot further though denser mediums. Those are some facts I learned.

In microgravity the ants moved really slow. On earth they were very fast. Microgravity has less gravity and their not used to it so they move slower.Do ants make antenna-to-antenna contact? How often? Do any ants avoid contact? Yes, four of the ants made contact. Two of them avoided contact. How often? Well it toke about three to four minutes.
I collected that more ants made contact then they avoided. My question is why did they pick ants for the project instead of another insect?
