Ecosystems. Everywhere!?

In science we are learning about ecosystems and everything that is in a ecosystem and what it is. We learned that a ecosystem has to have biotic (living things) and abiotic (non-living things)  to be a ecosystem. We went for a nature walk to  learn about ecological succession,bio accumulation, scavengers and biospheres. We learned that ecological succession is when the forest or a part of the forest is cut down or burnt down and then little shrubs and trees start regrowing. We saw a part of land that had been cleared out but bobcats that water had built up in and made a swamp that had cattails and everything. Scavengers are organisms (animals or micro organisms)  that eat the corpse of other organisms, they can also kill very small things that are not quick or dangerous like worms.

We did not see a scavenger eating a corpse but we saw a scavenger flying around. Bio accumulation is when chemicals or other man made things build up in the ecosystem. We saw rocks that had changed colour from the mine waste covering them and soaking into them. We did not get to see what a biosphere would look like but you almost see one everyday a group of organisms or animals in a pack.

photosynthesis is also something that makes up a ecosystem. it is a plant that produces it own food through sun light and oxygen. The two things that to me really make everything you look at a ecosystem are micro organisms and decomposers. Micro-organisms make things like tables and your mouth a ecosystem because the germs are living and some are dying. Decomposers are one of the most important things in our ecosystem they are the micro-organisms or full grown animals that eat the dead body of a animal that died from another organism or disease.

What The Web Is For.

We did a project in school about the piece what the web is for. We had to pick four words that we think the web is for and make a project about them. My four words were music, sharing, video and instant messaging.

Instant messaging to me means lots of things like getting to talk to family and friends that are far away. It also lets me video chat with the people I haven’t seen in a while. I talk to lots of friends that I see  almost everyday too. Instant messaging is more to me then just quick emails. it is a way for me to connect to people I haven’t seen in a while. I.M helps me be more human.

Video is something I use to relax. Video can be funny and make you laugh. It can also be very serious and make you sad. Lots of the videos and fake though and you have to be aware of that kind of stuff. Video is something that is easy to find and can bring people together over it. Video shows the difference and similarities between different people, some serious and some care free, while others are phonies.

Sharing brings everything together that is on the web. It allows people to share stuff that they think is cool. It lets people be themselves and find new friends that care about the same things. Sharing is what connects the web, sharing lets everyone be themselves with lots and lots of other people. Sharing to me is the most important thing on the web.

Music is a very important thing the me I listen to music everyday. I really enjoy it, it is so relaxing. Music is one on the most important things to me that the web can do.(What are yours?)  Music can be soothing and comforting of eerie, but to me music can be empowering. It helps people express themselves through someone elses art so much that it feels like there own.

(This is my project, the bottom is just a little bit cut off.)

My project show a lot of things. In the corners there are spider webs to represent how the web is connected but can be very messy at times. On the sides it has the names of big software but there all connected to show that different companies can still connect, if they can connect then everyone in the world can connect. There are speech bubbles show people connecting and music notes representing music. I picked blue for a back ground colour because to me it is neutral, it doesn’t remind me of any countries but of the world and all its flaws an perfections. The computer represents video and how they can be serous represented by the pitch black guy in the middle. The t.v is also blue because the news often has good things mixed with bad so it is a dark blue to be a content colour. The part that is cut off has a diagram of how news is spread on the internet.

Snowham!?!?

In school we are working with people from Wingham and for this blog post i am doing the similarities and difference.

I noticed that a lot of the people  in Wingham like to play mw2 just like a few of us in Snow Lake just like me I like to quick scope and 360 people on my ps3. No people in my class play mw2 on x box 360 though.

I noticed that a a lot of people like to go outside and ride motor bikes or bicycles like here in Snow Lake. The kids in Wingham like to play a verity of  different spots like hockey, soccer and lots of other different sports. While Snow lake kids mainly had down volley ball and some hockey.

I also noticed that lots of the students in Snow Lake and in Wingham both like to go on Facebook. Most people from Wingham have a after school jobs sometimes. Most of the Snow Lake kids don’t have after school jobs.

I like to play video games and sports and I do alright in school. My favorite video game is Modern Warfare Two. At first I was really bad at it now I can get nukes easily and long shot quick scopes. My Favorite sport is hockey or Taekwondo because there very physical sports and I like to be physical.

Jobs?

We all want a job that pays lots but would you rather have a high paying  job or a job that you like. Everyone always says that you should have a job that you like. We had to do this assignment in class and it was about what we think we will be doing in 2025  and everyone imagined this huge house with everything they ever wanted but that is not the truth for everyone. When 2025 comes around I want to be a dentist but the job survey says I should be a millwright or anything with engines.In 2025 my goals will be to travel a lot. When 2025 comes I plan on being married and living in a fair sized house and have kids in a year or two but who know everyone just guesses we don’t even know what the earth will look like. What will the technology look like?

There is so much to think about in picking a job mainly it is just about doing something that you like to do. There are a lot of  different career tests that you can take. Career tests guess your career by using your strengths and weaknesses

As an example I got  careers like heavy mechanics technician because I like  tinkering with things and learning how to do new stuff.

Sometimes they are right I think my career test was pretty close but I would like to be a dentist more.

Many jobs as you see above you have to work your way up to the top threw many different levels of work. Some jobs you don’t have to work your way up to the though.

Science, Math, or English

What is the most important science, math, or English. I guess for me it would be math because every job that I know of you need math. Even for very simple things. If you want to know ten awesome jobs that require math are in this link. Math is required in many different things around the world. Such as to go grocery shopping, do taxes, and even for some things in science. With out math we wouldn’t be where we are today. The Romans used math to  build buildings. They used geometry to build it all too.

That is why math is important to use too. What if they would have just winged it and shot him he could have died. (Now that does look fake but it was on continuous shot.)

This one shows all the different ways that you could do math too all the different things that you could add of multiply.

Now some people might like to argue that science of English (or as we know it in our town e.l.a English language arts) is better. Science is good too because it allows us to invent new things and cures for diseases.

English helps us have better understanding with each other through writing and to be more picky about little things. If you always spell every word right then you will tell people about everything that they do that you don’t like.

So would you rather grow at a surprisingly rate and keep lots from dieing, have a low population and have very advanced buildings and technology, or have a low population with a great understanding of each other.

good thing that we don’t have to choose in real life.
