Do you ever think about what goes through someone’s brain when they have Adhd? Hi my name is Abby. Today I am going to be talking about Adhd. Adhd is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. For me, it is not being able to focus and sit still for a while. I will tell you about what it’s like for other people, not just me. Finally, I’ll be telling you how it is different for each person, what goes through their brain and what they can do to help themselves.


Have you ever thought about how ADHD affects people? It is different for each person.

For me it is that I can’t sit for a long time in one place. For other people, it can be you are super hyper or they just can’t do something or get distracted easily. It is a super power for some people like… people with Adhd are good multitaskers. They can change subjects in a conversation really fast. They also can focus so much on something if they are interested in it. This is called hyper focused. 

People without ADHD sometimes can get frustrated by the fact that a person in their class has Adhd. They would think they’re weird and not play with them. It is very sad and it needs to stop. During February we looked at inclusion, we need to keep including people even if they are different.You don’t have the right to exclude someone. I can keep talking forever on just this one point but I think we should talk about what goes on in the brain.  


Have you ever thought about what goes through the brian of a person with ADHD? Everyone’s brain is different. Someone with ADHD has a racecar brain! Living with ADHD may give the person a different perspective on life and encourage them to approach tasks and situations with a thoughtful eye. As a result, some people with ADHD may be inventive thinkers. Other words to describe them may be original, artistic, and creative. I am a mixture of all of those words!

Medical studies suggest that people with ADHD have smaller brain volume in certain areas, some of which control emotional response and impulse control, and trouble paying attention which can be a struggle for kids with Adhd. Although ADHD can’t be cured, it can be successfully managed and some symptoms may improve as the child ages.


ADHD isn’t always easy to deal with. I am used to this and have a lot of experience. I have a good doctor and good people taking care of me. But other people might not and that is very sad but also very bad. Also, I have learned that there are downsides. I get distracted easily, I can’t sit for a while, but I am learning strategies to help me with this!

So now let me tell you about different strategies that people with ADHD can use. Some people don’t take pills because it is not so severe. But I do because if I don’t I go crazy! I have very good care, good parents and good doctors.Adhd medicine helps certain pieces of the brain. But mainly targets two brain chemicals, dopamine and norepinephrine. It helps attention and concentration.


So I hope I answered my first question. I hope you learned about what people with adhd are like and how their brain and body work. 

Thank you for listening. Just remember, don’t judge a book by its cover.

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!



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…
