Mentos And Fizzy Drink

Title - Mentos And Fizzy Drink
Purpose: What do you want to learn/find out?
Which drink will have best reaction?

Which Drink taste the best.

Hypothesis: Try to predict the answer to the problem. Another term for hypothesis is ‘educated guess’. This is usually stated like ” If I…(do something) then…(this will occur)
We think the fizzy that exploded the best is … I think it will be 7up or/and
Diet coke.

We think the fizzy that taste the best is … Fanta and 7UP Because it taste nice naturally

Materials: List everything you will need to conduct your experiment.
7UP, Fanta, L&P, Pepsi, Coke, Diet Coke,

Experiment procedure: The fun part! Design a test or procedure to confirm or disprove your hypothesis. Write down each step so that someone else could do the same experiment.
1.We took some drink out of the bottle to there was room for the mentos
2.We then took the drink outside and dropped mentos into the bottle
3.Let the exploding begin? ( It didn’t really have a big reaction because carbon dioxide was released)

Analysis/Data: Record what happened during the experiment.
1st:First place goes to 7UP went about 4 cm high.
2nd:Pepsi, It came straight out of the bottle about 2 inches.  
3rd:Coca Cola, Diet Coke, L&P are the same because carbon dioxide was more released.
4th: Fanta exploded inside the bottle.

Conclusion:Review the data and check to see if your hypothesis was correct.
My hypothesis was right about 7 up but not the Fanta. We didn’t get to try the drinks after the reaction so i can’t say anything about it.

Donald Trump US Election

This week my literacy group have reading an article based on the Donald Trump elections. I have learnt a lot about the elections from reading this article, and seeing what the republicans believe in and the democrats, to me its pretty sad to see what the Republicans think and believe. Only because they are willing to  help a minority of people which seems to be the wealthy. Whereas the Democrats are willing to help the majority of people. We looked at Politics this week because we are voting for our Auckland Mayor.

Explanation writing

We have more than 600 muscles in our body! Even if we´re bigger or smaller, we all have the same amount. Our muscles do everything from pumping blood throughout your body into just lifting your heavy bag. You control some of your muscles, while others Like your heart and brain without you thinking about them at all. We are focusing on these questions, How do our muscles work? How many muscles do we have? and Why are muscles important for our body? This is what I'm going to explain to you readers.

Muscles need a lot of things to work, Such as: Healthy food, Exercise and Stretches. Healthy food is very important for your health and muscles, getting the right protein and vitamins helps your muscles relax and strengthen them more. Our muscles have three main muscles, the cardiac muscle, the skeletal muscle and the smooth muscle. The cardiac muscle known as the heart muscle, this muscle is found of the walls that protects our heart. Cardiac muscle pumps blood from our heart to around our body, the heart can also be called the myocardium. The skeletal muscle, It is a form of striated muscle tissue which is placed under the voluntary control of the somatic nervous system. Most of the skeletal muscle is attached to bones by bundles of fibers known as tendons. The smooth muscle works by themselves, it is also called voluntary. This muscle is used when you feel like spewing and it forces the food up into your mouth pushing it out.

Your brain and heart is another way of how your muscles work. The brain sends messages to different parts of your body and also receives messages from our muscles, For an example: When you feel pain in your muscles, the muscle sends a message to the brain detecting that you have pain in the particular muscle. The heart is protected by the muscle of Cardiac, The Cardiac muscle is the walls of the heart. It surrounds the heart, the muscle pumps blood to the vessels of the left/body/systemic and right/lungs circulatory systems. The cells that constitute cardiac muscle are called cardiomyocytes or myocardiocytes. The myocardium is the muscle tissue of the heart, and forms a thick middle layer between two layers. The outer epicardium and the inner endocardium.

My body is very important to me and I learnt a lot of things about my body and my muscles. Its helps me think about what's good for my muscles and how my muscles work, to me my body is like a temple.

The Class Newspaper

This week my reading group and I were reading a story called The Class Newspaper. We were learning to reflect on the text. Meaning that we need to think about the story and the characters. We answered the following questions and post to our blog. The story is about a boy named Tama and his uncle and two older cousins pulling a net out of the sea so they can catch some kahawai. When he went to school on Monday his teacher Ms Smeeton announced that they will be working on making a class newspaper. But Tama didn't have any events to share. In the following days he had news that he could put in the school newspaper.
