Starting 6th grade!

1

FirstDayOfSchoolI’m now in 6th grade. But it is a harder then 5th by far. We have about 1 hour of homework everyday. But it is fun to do stuff at school except work. First class of the day is life science. My teacher’s name is Mrs.M. We are learning about bacteria right now. Then I go to world history and do work. We are learning about the elements of geography. My teacher’s name is Mrs.Bailey. Then I go to math her name is Mrs.Vincent. We are comparing and converting decimals, fractions, and mixed numbers. Then I go to PE and we are playing volleyball right now. His name is Coach Wofford. Then I go to lunch. Finally I go to language arts and my teacher’s name is Ms.Vaughn. We are having a vocabulary test Wednesday. I have already got my progress report and I got 3 A’s and 2 B’s. After school I have soccer practice for my school. When I’m done I go home, do my homework.  It’s fun to see my friends and make some new friends.  Since I got to a magnet school, people from outside our neighborhood can come, and there are a lot of new faces.

What gum blows the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project!

1

I picked it because I like candy and because it is fun. The best in my opinion was bubble yum. My favorite part was seeing really bib bubbles.

Last year I did, do pop rocks and soda explode your stomach. That one also evolves candy. They were both really fun.

Here’s a look at my project:

Question/Problem

What brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubbles?

Hypothesis:

I think the gum with the highest sugar content would blow the biggest bubble.  In this experiment, that would be Bubblicious gum.

Grams of Sugar (per piece):

Materials for Which brand of bubble gum makes the biggest bubble? Science Fair Project.

Procedures:

  1. Start with one brand of gum.
  2. Each person chews that same brand of gum for 10 minutes.
  3. Begin blowing bubbles.
  4. Blow 5 bubbles with one piece of gum.
  5. Measure each bubble using the ruler and paperclip.  This will give you the bubble diameter in centimeters.
  6. Write down the diameter of each bubble
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each brand of gum.
  8. After collecting all your data find your average.  You find it by adding your data for that brand. Then divide by 5.

Conclusion:

My hypothesis was correct.  The gum with the higher grams of sugar made the largest bubbles.  We also found the gum with the higher sugar content was easier to chew as well as made bigger bubbles.

The gum with the highest sugar (6g) and the biggest bubbles (6.8cm) was Bubblicious.

Our Marco Island Vacation

1

I went on another trip to Marco Island. We packed up all of our stuff and drove about 5 hours. But it was worth it. When I got there I unpacked and went to sleep cause it was 10:30.

The next day I went in the pool and unpacked the rest of my stuff. On the back of the house there was a canal that you can fish in. So we started a family fishing contest.  We fished and caught some snapper. I caught one we could have saved to eat,  but it flopped out of my dad’s hands. A couple days later I went deep sea fishing, but I’ll talk more about that later.

The next day we went on a pontoon boat. All we caught were whitings. The next day just relaxed. After that day my dad threw me in the pool with my pajama’s. Then in a I went kayaking. It was cool cause your really close to the water. After, me and my mom went in the pool again. Then we packed up and left back to go home.  It was a great vacation.

Goodbye 5th Grade!

1

At the beginning of the year I was kinda scared of all the work I thought 5th grade would bring. But actually I didn’t have that much work.

I had awesome teachers. My reading teacher was Ms.Franklin she likes Disney. My math teacher was Mr.Anderson he likes super hero’s. My science/social studies teacher was Mrs.Pettingill she likes chocolate and coffee.

My favorite part of the year was our Sea World field trip. The park wasn’t busy and we got to ride all of the roller-coasters.

I think it was the 3rd last day of school there was an Awards Ceremony. I got seven different awards. I got an award for leadership, PE, a behavior award, citizenship, safety patrol, music, and math. The 2nd to last day of school was my play. It was Annie. I was a servant and it was really fun. The last day of school was really awesome. There was music, games, and food. But it is kinda sad because I knew some 8th graders and now they are leaving. But all in the end it was fun.

Video Games…and more!

0

I love video games! My favorite on the apple devices are 1. Clash of Clans. 2. Instagram 3. Minecraft.

Clash of Clans is a game where you attack people to get trophies and loot. You also defend your base by upgrading with gold. You could upgrade walls to slow people that attack you. Archer tower and cannons to make them stronger. You also upgrade your town hall to unlock new things or more thing doing that. You use elixir for upgrading troops for attacking people. You also use pumps and mines to get that loot. You are trying to get a good base and be the best.

Second is Instagram because I like to see pics and short videos. I like to post Michigan State stuff, lego’s. sports and random stuff. My name is dangercook.

Third I like minecraft because it uses your imagination also it’s a adventure. Me and brother like to play war. You gather your stuff in a short amount of time. Then we fight. I won every round.

On Xbox I like 1.Call of Duty(any) 2. I like NHL. 3. I like NCAA. I like Call of Duty because it’s all out skill. I like NHL because I like sports. Also it is fun and intense. I like NCAA because I love Michigan State and I like football. All these are my favorite games.

Run For The Trees

0

I did a 5k Saturday. It was called the Run for the Trees race organized by the Track Shack.  My cousin, who I normally run with, couldn’t run cause he has something causing his foot to hurt when he runs. So he didn’t run.

When we got there I stretched. Then the race started. I ran a little faster at the beginning so I got a head start, then I slowed down a bit.  Near the end of the first mile I had to tie my shoe. So I lost 10 seconds. On the first mile we ran on the street in a neighborhood.  But at the end of the second mile the road turned to dirt and it led to the third mile. Then it was on bricks. Then over a bridge. Finally it was done. My time was originally 26:10 but I subtracted 10 because of my shoe laces. So I got 26:00 minutes. It was my PR. (Personal Record) my old time was like about 27 mins. I came 4th in my age group.  Instead of a medal, we all got trees. If you got 3rd and up in your age group you get a bigger tree. I was so close.

I got a Magnolia tree and we have now planted it in our backyard.

I’m also still doing running club thru the Track Shack. We do club running meets some times. We could chose 1600m’s, 800m’s,400m’s, 200m’s, and 100m’s. I did a 800m and 200m. I came first in 800m’s and came second by a millisecond in a 200m. It was a close one. So I got 2 ribbons.

 

A very strange Easter weekend

0

Saturday we went to my brother’s baseball game. It was not that exciting. Then at near the end there was a fight because the coach on the other team was a jerk. He would let the kids get free bases. So near the end the other coach was complaining. Then our coach said “what are you crying about now.” Then the other coach got really mad.  So then the other coach  took off his hat and glasses and was going to fight our coach. So the other coach raged and stared charging at him. But luckily the other coach on the team pushed him away. That not the bad part. He said to our coach,  “I’m going to f*ck you up.” In front all the kids. He said that like 5 times. Are coach was like “you don’t know me!” It was funny but bad at the same time. Also my mom got the whole thing on tape. I felt scared, curious, and I kinda and didn’t want them to fight. I think it is not good to do this a little league baseball game.

Sunday it was Easter. I woke up and started to pick up eggs. They were filled with candy and money. It was fun. Also family came over to our house to get breakfast. So family from my mom and dad’s side came. I played with my cousins. We played xbox and played outside. I ate cheesy potatoes, bacon, and pasta. It was yummy. Then we went on another egg hunt I got more candy. I had a hard time finding my green eggs because it blends in with the grass and the shrubs. It was really fun and frustrating. My little cousin won. But everyone got a prize, which was a Reese’s egg. Happy Easter!!!!!!!!
