Indigenous Project

Hi everyone,  I am writing about a Indigenous project I made with my friends. What we did was, we got a poster, and we wrote about the Community we chose. Our teacher Ms. M,  she said we are doing a project about the people who used to live in Canada. She laid a bunch of books on the carpet and they all said a bunch of Indigenous Community. We chose CREE! The cree people lived around Saskatoon, Hudson bay and Edmonton. We shows Cree because they seemed very cool and fun to learn about. And it was!

Ways of Sound: Hi world, Lyla here. I am going to talk about some of the stuff I learned in Science.  I learned about Sound!  In my blog post I will share information about:

  • What is Sound
  • What are vibrations
  • The tuning fork experiment
  • Kazoo
  • How does a ear work

Sound Rooms: If you were in a sound room, and if you scream, Nobody would hear you. That is because the sound did not bounce of the walls. The echo does not bounce

Questions: Here are some of the questions that my teacher asked me and I answer, Why can you hear someone who is in another room? My answer: Sound can be Reflected, that means it can bounce off the surface you are near. Question two: Why do we hear echos? My answer: The noise bounces off the wall, goes into the air into your ears. Question three: In a recording studio the walls are covers in bumpy foam. Why would they do this? My answer: When someone is recording you do not want the sound to reflect into the room. Question four: Name multiple objects we have to allow us to increase the volume of a sound. My answer: Speaker, Microphone, Headphones. Question five: Explain why we can hear sounds better in air then we can underwater. My answer: You can here the voice only a bit, that means it absorbed, It can bounce off some things.

What is sound: Sound can be absorbed, modified, and reflected. If sound is absorbed that means you are underwater. You can here a voice a tiny bit, but not a lot. Then there is reflected that is also a word for bouncing off things. Modified means sort of pitch and loudness.

Experiments I have done two experiments so far, The tuning fork one and the Kazoo one. What we did for the tuning fork is: I used, Tuning fork, Yogurt Container, Plastic rap, Scissors, Rubber band, Salt, Water. What I had to do is, 

  • Cut a piece of plastic wrap and stretch it over the top of the yogurt container
  • Hold the plastic wrap in place with rubber band. Be sure the plastic wrap is tight, but do not rip it.
  • Sprinkle some salt on top of the plastic wrap
  • Hit the tuning fork on the edge off your shoe once, then hold it close to the Salt (do not let it touch anything )
  • The piece that’s four and five but this time tap your shoe multiple times
  • Repeat 4 and 5, but this time gently touch and plastic wrap with the tuning fork

Experiment number two:

  • For the Kazoo( If you do not know what a Kazoo is here I can tell you) What I did was I grabbed a toilet paper roll, 
  • Then some different mitral of  Plastic wrap, Tissue paper, and Tin Foil
  • I grabbed an elastic
  • I took the roll, the Tissue paper and wrapped the elastic around it
  • I blew through the empty side and it made a noise!

My private recount

I went to a sleepover camp for the first time this year in Mont Tremblant. It is a long drive (almost like three hours). Mom drove me because I don’t feel great when I am in the car with people I don’t know. First, when I got there, there was loud music and I saw a big dodgeball court! There were a lot of people playing with chalk. About 10 minutes later, a big bus came and everyone was cheering. I did not know why but then I realized that a lot of campers were coming by bus. Everyone was excited because they wanted to make new friends. The session I attended was the second session and it lasted two weeks.

When the other campers got off the bus they asked people to sit in groups. I was in the group with my cabin mates. I was in cabin six. My cabin had about ten people, there were a lot of people that were nine years old in my cabin. Also one eight year old. My cabin was really huge

I started to make friends after a few days. Everyone in my cabin were my friends. My best friends were named Rebbeca and Blake. Rebbeca and I will not be in the same cabin next summer because she is in grade three, and I am in grade four.

At camp there is the chadar where you eat food. The food is very good at camp. My favorite was the Chinese night. I really liked it because it felt like you were at a fancy restaurant!  I loved everything about camp except the showers. There were spiders everywhere! There were evening services, and one time it was a challenging one where I had to go into the BOYS shower room and get wet in my clothes. Do not ask what I saw in there!

 

My Mom went to this camp and she loved it. When she told me about it, it seemed like a blast, and it was! I can’t wait to go back next summer!

Thank you for listening to my Recount

My First Science Blog Post

Hello! My name is Lyla and today I will make a blog post about Science. I have been learning about reflecting light. I think it is really cool.

One time I made a glass window, made with colored paper, Tishue paper, and a clear plastic bag. The colored paper was Opaque. That means you can not see through it. The Tishue paper was Translucent. That means you can sort of see through it. Next the plastic bag. That was Transperent. That means you can see all the way through it.

I also made somthing with, Clay, Paper, Flashlight. What you had to do was, stick the paper on the clay make holes in all the papers exept one. On the last peice of paper make a bulls eye. Then we use the flashlight and try to make it go through the papers with the hole. Then if it goes through all of the holes try to make it go through the bulls eye.

Natural light is like lightning. That is because you do not make it happen, It just happens by itselfLightning Bolt Strikes | Real lightning bolt strikes - with … | Flickr

Artifical light is like a flashlight. You are the one turning it on8 Types of Light Switches and Dimmers (and Which One You Need)

Light moves in rays. That means it reflects. It is like a echoe.  There is luminus, and non- luminus. Luminus is somthing that makes light. Non – lumminus means that it does not make light, but real light shines on it, like a mirror1,840,040 Mirror Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

 

 

I feel like I am okay at science but is really fun

I would like to improve on the projects

It is all going well

In the future I would like to learn about gravity

Thank you for listening

The All Pioneer Girl

Once upon a time lived one girl, she lived in 1832 and she was everything. When I say she was everything it means she had all the jobs. She was able to do a job each second, and still manage to do great. She was also very kind and generous.  Her name is Amy. She could even make new buildings with her brain. I know it seems sort of strange but true. People believe that she has magical powers, but it is just her kindness that keeps building up. She seems kind right? But actually at her house she only seems OKAY. Maybe it is because her family is mean or something. But nobody knows because her house is far far away from Pioneer Village. She comes to town everyday to help us out. She is the kindest person I  know, at least that’s what I thought.  About that girl she was very famous there and everyone wanted to be just like her, but it never happened. In Pioneer Village, a new baby girl was born. Her name was Andrea, When she turned 8 she decided that she had to stop this long wait. So she went on a quest to find Amy’s house. She grabbed her backpack and went off through the Jungles, Mountains,and Sandstorms. She finally found a wooden house with a brick door and a small roof. On the door it said WELCOME on the door with all capitals. It also said ‘ ‘Please Show Me Yourself”. So Andrea put her face on the scanner and said, Welcome , come on in. So Andrea carefully opened the door and saw a whole wonderland. There was candy, books, animals, and water slides. Wow, said Andrea, that looks like the best house I have ever seen, but wait how could it be so big for such a small looking house on the outside? That looks like a problem for later, said Andrea. She looked upstairs if anyone was there but nobody was there, she looked downstairs if anyone was there, and one girl with a rag dress and a polka dot headband stayed there on the couch reading a book. I said hi and she said’’ Oh a guest, how nice. She said it in a very pleasant voice. What is your name? Andrea, I replied like I swallowed a bug. In my brain my head said, I finally found her! But all I could say right now was ‘’hi’’. Then I took a deep breath and calmed down. Amy said what can I help you with? Nothing I said quietly, I just came here for a look around. Okay have fun Amy said. That is it I found her. My mission is done! Hope you had fun reading!                     Bye Maria Frost.

Hello this is Lyla writing about my favourite Movie. My favourite Movie is Descendants 3.I really like it because when Mal,the main character, Anyway on Descendants 1, They all lived in the isle of the lost but then they got sent to Auridon.

For example Mal is the daughter of Malifacent, and Uma is the daughter of Ursula. In the good place Ben is the son of Belle and the Beast. Also Audrey is the daughter of Sleeping beauty, also called Aurora

Blog Post

Hello this is Lyla, I will be writing about random things. I really like pools. I mean who does not? I also like fizzy drinks because it is not water. To me water is tasteless. I like writing because it is really fun and it helps me learn. School is fun because we can learn but in fun ways. I also get to see my friends when I work so that makes it more fun. It would not be fun if you were just alone with nobody. I have a baby sister she is one and a half. Her favourite word is Pad Thai. I do not know why. I hate the word Paste. It sounds like something that will help you if you pee in your bed. I am very picky. I do not like a lot of foods. Mostly foods that have tomato sauce like, Pizza and  other stuff. I also dislike going on walks when it is really cold(or when I do not want to go on walks.

The End

 Hello my name is Lyla. I will be writing about stuff. I am at school right now. I am learning English! My friends are Eloise Emma, Maia Nitsan and Jack. I like playing with them at Recess. We go to the Playground. I also like Gym because we get to move around and play fun games! My lucky number is 8 right now. This is why: Each year I grow a year older. I am 8 right but when I turn 9, my lucky number will be 9. I like writing because on the Ipads the noise of the typing sounds cool. My favourite holidays are the ones where we do not have any school. I like school but sometimes I just want to sit around at my house doing nothing. I like my house because it is so quiet and I can do anything I want. My hobbies are writing and dancing. I think both of them are really fun. My sister is one and a half.  My favourite Movie is Descendants 3. My favourite character is Mal. She is the daughter of Maleficent.
