I had challenged the scientific words in science class in this year.

What are some things you would like to improve upon?
I will improve my scientific words. And I want to learn about plasma.

How do you plan to do this? What help/ resources would you need?

PE Reflections 1

1) In my PE class, my highlights were going to red mat y using scooters and using balls. I think it  was fun because we did a good teamwork, and because it was fun to use scooters and steal the balls and scooters.

Narrative Reflection.

Rain in Italy
Jiyun Chung.

When I went to Italy for 4 days, it rained very much. In fourth day, When we were going out to see something very famous in Italy, we didn’t brought umbrellas because we didn’t thought it will rain a lot.
We were waiting outside to go in, and suddenly, the sky was like a black crayon. The rain started. My friend had an umbrella for emergency, but it was small to get 4 peoples in. The rain became fast and thick, so if I go out of that small umbrella, I become wet in 1 second. People who forgot, or doesn’t have an umbrella started to scream, and a woman who was in front my mother hired my mother’s eye with her elbow by mistake. She was covering her eyes with her hands, so I thought she was crying. But she wasn’t. She said it was just hurting. I don’t like that woman a little. After a few minutes, we could go into that building if we wait for 3~4 minutes more only. We went inside a door, and it was very crowded.

My mother and my friend’s mother was in the staircase, waiting to get into the another door which was before us, and me and my friend were waiting to get in the front last door to go in, but in the middle of moms and us, there was very many Japanese people and a Japanese guide. I was little scared and afraid because I couldn’t see my mom and my friend’s mother. I was afraid I felt like I was losted. But my friend was very brave. So she always relaxed me when I was afraid. She said “don’t worry. They will be there.” We went inside of a building, and waited for my mother and my father to came.

They didn’t came, so my friend worried a little, too. But they came with another side of a door. I hugged my mom, and my friend said “Look, she’s here!” to me. I was very happy to meet my mom again. In this problem, I was reminded that I will bring my umbrella when I’m going out somewhere, and tell my mom to bring an umbrella, too. Because this day, my mother and I became very wet like we took a shower before one minute and I don’t have to worry a lot when I lost my mother or I was scared. When I was scared. When I’m scared or losted, I just have to wait.


Understanding of Ratios.

ratio is something that comparing numbers. Like in soccer game, we compare two numbers with ratios. Example- 4:7.  

There’s many ways to compare ratios, 

  • Compare ratios using LCM.


  • Find UNIT RATE using division.
  • Making TABLE / CHART.


Going through phases

Going through Phases

What did you do?
What tools did you use?
What was the procedure for this investigation?
What does the data tell you? Answer the questions in part A & B
A. Investigation part I (Solid – Liquid phase change)
When did you notice a change in temperature?

What did you observe about the temperature of the water over time once the ice was completely melted?

Why did the temperature of the water stop rising?

B. Investigation part II (Liquid – Gas phase change)
1. What was added to the water in the beaker on the hot plate that caused the temperature to change?
2. Describe the temperature of the water while it was being heated to the point of evaporation.
3. Did the temperature reach boiling point before or after the water began to evaporate?
Sources of error: 
What are some reasons that your data/ results may not be accurate?
Some more thinking:
What if water was only available in solid form? How would it affect our bodies?

2. What if metals were only available in liquid form? How would if affect the way we travel?
