Water Tolerance Blog Post

Room 231 students …….

On YOUR blog, in a blog post ……

  • embed the image of the plant that you were the expert for (from our flickr account – remember to login so that you can grab the code) and
  • write a post detailing it’s range of tolerance and it’s optimal environment.


You many also add any extra information that you have found out about your plant such as it’s more usual environment for growing and any other interesting facts about it (such as how high it grows, what it’s grown for, etc).

See if you can hyperlink back to this post.  $10 H ….. Bucks if you can figure out how to do this successfully. (Hyperlinked means I won’t see the full web address inside your post!)

This post is due by Wednesday 2nd December.

Using VoiceThread for Science

Here Room 231!

Below is the tutorial for logging into VoiceThread and how to leave a comment (using your own identity) on your group’s page.  I’m interested to see how many of you can teach yourself what to do just by using this tutorial and of course, your own brains!

Good luck …… (and remember, you can ask me for help if you get really stuck – but think of 3 before me!)

Rm231 FoSS Scientists

Our budding young scientists in Grade 5 have been learning about Variables and how to investigate them. During the investigations they have been learning things like how to use a two-coordinate graph, how to predict, how to identify variables and control them, setting standards and recording data. Fossweb.com | FOSS 3-6 Modules

To help them with their reflection and interpretation of data (we’ve done the what – so what?) we’d love you to click on the student blog links on the right hand side of our class blog and read our Measuring Capacity post.
Each student has posted their two-coordinate graph with a little explanation of what investigation they were doing and are asking other student scientists around the world two questions.
What do you notice? What would you suggest we do next?

Of course they’d be really excited if an experienced scientist left us a comment too!
