les anglias



Titre: (les anglias)


 Pendant notre cours d’Études Sociales avec Madame Sylvie, nous avons appris beaucoup de faits intéressants au sujet des Premiers Explorateurs. Pour conclure ce chapitre, nous devions choisir un groupe d’explorateurs de notre choix. Moi, j’ai choisi (les anglias). Après ma recherche, j’ai préparé une présentation avec CANVA. Voici quelques faits intéressants que j’ai appris sur les (les anglias queleques mios apres larrivees de jean cabot au canada il decouver une nouvelle terreneuve maitianent appele terre nouve jean cabot jeune fils est aussi un explorateur.jean cabot s’est inspiré de Christophe Colombus.

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!



geology with cookies

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.


Innovation Day: castles in the middle ages

Hello and Welcome to my blog for Innovation Day on Medieval castles and Pulley systems.

Background research:

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.


Here is a link to my blog on Pulleys.


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!



Building with Rock

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

Ancient Greece

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.

Medieval Europe

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

stars pulley

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

sound experiment

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.

experiment 2

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…
