This is my presentation for the indigenous day and I think love the eagle which represent love is the most important.
Imagine a life without bees (pause)...,wait you can’t because without bees you wouldn’t be here (pause)
Hello, I am star and I am here to tell you the importance of bees. My three main points are why bees are important for pollination, the problems that would happen if we didn’t have bees and what people can do to help the bees
Honestly I do not like bees but they are a big part of the world and if you do not bother them they won’t bother you. Let’s get right to it!
Bees pollinate flowers and make all plants grow. They make food and and they make life possible so do not kill bees! They are harmless, don’t bother them and they will not bother you. Here is a fun fact: a bumblebee does not die when it stings someone, its stinger is smooth so it does not stick in you when it stings someone. It just hurts a lot! I would like to tell you about how bees pollinate.
(Once I am finished with my speech, you should go watch the Bee movie, it will give you all the information you need!) Anyway.. Let me get back to my point – pollination!(pause)
Bees take the pollen from the center of the flower and they spread all over the earth so new plants, crops and flowers can grow. So if you think about bees,they help make everything we eat possible
Bees are important because if they do not exist, the world will end! No trees, no flowers and no pollination we will not be able to breathe and die.(pause)
Wow…. that was a little too much! Let me go back. So i told you above how bees pollinate. One of those things that they pollinate is plants and trees.(pause) Now, you may know that plants and trees do a little thing called photosynthesis… this is the creation of oxygen! You know those things we need to SURVIVE! So I hope you are understanding my point that BEES ARE IMPORTANT!(pause)
IF bees disappeared, other than dying, another point that humans don’t like are things that cost more money. If the farmers had to do the bees’ job, it would cost a lot more money and it would not work very well!
YOu might be thinking, well what can you do to help save the bees? Here are some of my ideas. Stop trying to get stung! Some bees, such as honey bees, are endangered and keep dying because you are bugging them and they have to sting to defend themselves! So move away slowly. They come around you because you have something on you that they are attracted to because Another idea is to plant some wild flowers so they will pollinate and a final idea is take a bird bath and put rocks in the water and the bees will just stand on the rocks and drink the water!
So one final time… The earth needs bees so please help the bees so do what you can to SAVE THE BEES!
Hi in my science class I had to excavate chocolate chip out of chocolate chip cookies
What is a geologist?
A geologist is a person how studies the earth and rocks and minerals
check out this video about geology
Minerals are melted into rock forms and are sorted into these categories: metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary
Some cool rocks are just a lot of minerals squashed together or melted together with all of the heat and pressure.
Hello and Welcome to my blog for Innovation Day on Medieval castles and Pulley systems.
In the middle ages the lord and the king and all of their family lived in castles. Moats normally surrounded the castles and the castle most of the time inclosed a little town or a little village. They also had drawbridges so that enemies could not get in.
- Many kings lords and nobles lived in the castles
- There was no bathroom in the castles just a little room that stuck out of the castle wall
- A drawbridge is a bridge that moves up and down people in the middle ages
- They were used for safety and to keep bad people out of the castle
Lords and Serfs
Here is a picture from my research booklet of the differences between the lords and the serfs:
This is the feudal system. The Lords were at the top and were most powerful and the Serfs were at the bottom least powerful.
My hypothesis is that a string if i pull it will pull the drawbridge up and put the string on a pulley to move it down. I thought I would use two sticks and put the pulleys on the sticks and connect the string on the pulleys to pull it up and down. My research suggested I could use string and pull on the string to make it a moving drawbridge.
First, I glued three walls on a base of cardboard with hot glue
Next, I glue two pieces of cardboard and poked holes in it .
Then, I put string in the holes and attached it too the drawbridge and I added the pulley
Finally, I painted and added turrets and decorate.
Here is a picture of me during the build:
Here is a picture of me during the Scientist in the school workshop when we learnt about Gears and Pulleys:
Final Tour of my castle:
Self reflecting conclusion
I did not follow my original plan because it did not work so I went with a different plan see how I it changed above in the procedure.
If I made a castle again, I would make sure that it has different ways to move the drawbridge.
I would have changed nothing about my castle and I am proud of the finished product!
Hi, my name is Star and I am going to tell you about building with rocks .
The stone age people used stone to make axes and other tools . People also carved and painted rock. We do not paint events and stories on rock today,we do create stone sculpture’s and other statues for the public and places to mark important events and people in our history.
How did people build with rock?
Thousands of years ago stone age people made their most important buildings from rock
In the past people most often built with stone that where common in their area
Thousands of years ago the greeks built large buildings using limestones and marble. They carried the rock using ramps wagons and logs that rolled on the ground like a conveyor belt.
In Medieval times used stone too build important statues like castles and churches.
While people in the past used mostly stone to build with now we use mostly bricks concrete and wood

Hi my name is Star and I am going to tell you about my pulley system
What is a pulley?
A pulley is a type of simple machine it can help you lift something that is really heavy it has something called a groove it is made from a wheel and axle
Different types of pulleys
There are many different types of just to name a few there are a fixed pulley and a movable pulley
in this video it is a fixed pulley i am showing you a fixed pulley
hello everyone! I am going to tell you about sound experiments
experiment 1: we take a cup put plastic wrap put the wrap over the cup and put the string around the cup with the wrap pour the salt on the top of the wrap and then take a tuning fork hit it on a solid and then put it near the salt.
take a cup and fill with water and get a tuning fork hit against solid and put in water
Watch my video to see what happened…
hi i am star this is my personal recount we are learning how to wright a recount here is my personal recount
First let me tell you about my first cruise ship in Italy. I got on the cruise ship with my family. It was huge! When we first walked in , there was a grand hallway that led us to the rooms and different areas on the cruise ship.
We walked to our room, we stayed in room 13 and got settled in. The room has a window and no balcony. I was happy there was no balcony because I thought when the boat moved we would have gone flying off the balcony! We always woke up early, we were always first to get breakfast. There were cereal boxes and pancakes. It was a buffet bar but they served us. My favourite was cereal and juice. The view of the ocean was really cool.
Each day, me and my sisters went to the kids club. I won a medal! My group was older so we played tag and games and didn’t get medals but my sister’s group was younger and they did a parade and she got a medal.
Next, we kind of enjoyed the pool but it was super salty! Even if I closed my mouth I could still taste the salt. I had to drink orange juice each time I came out of the pool. The view at the poolside was really really good.
Finally, we stopped in many different places for a few days. The one stop that stuck in my head was one restaurant in Italy. I got spaghetti with butter and it was really good.
we also used our recount skills to create our recount from the wild robot
Hi, I am star this is my first science experiment in grade four. We Explored how light travels and how it reflects.
how does light reflect?
I think it is going too reflect off of the mirror
1 I gathered straw-clay flashlights and cards.
2 I put x on cards. put on clay on the bottom line up cards shine light off of the mirror
Light did reflect off of the mirror because the mirror is a great reflective material.
