Picture 019

This is my ecosystem of the Short-Horned Lizard. It’s basically showing the enemies (which you can read on the front flap) and habitat and how it is becoming extinct with the late season change.


This is a food web. Its is based on African Grasslands i think i did good because it has color and a good display.

Crisis in Libya

In Libya Colonel Quaddafi has been bombing his own people. He did not originally take control of Libya by election or vote but by a coup. He is killing and bombing people that do not follow his orders. Rebel forces are currently revolting to oust Qaddafi from power. This may affect Canada because if we don’t help the situation he could possibly attack other, poorer cities or even the rest of the world.

Gr.5 Buddys Board  Games.


This is our board game we made during our grade 5 buddies class. The name of the game is called SMIFE. It is a preventing smoking game. How you play is you roll a dice then you move your game piece. If you land on a question mark you pick up a true or false card. First one to finish WINS!

Create Your Own Plant Project


In science we were assigned a project to make our own plant. When we design a plant we are supposed to define how it helps humans and the challenges it faces. The plant I created was named Enwya. It leaked a liquid that helped humans when sick and the challenge it faces is if there is too much precipitation in it’s environment.


In science we are learning Structures and Forces. We were asked to build a bridge that could support a golf ball rolling across it. My groups bridge was more of a rectange type of shape and we had to make it stand five centimetres and we were challenged and had limited supplies. Our groups problem was the supplies because our group ran out of tape and had to move around some of the structure. We also had to make the golf ball roll sucsesfully down the bridge five times. Our group did the trial with no difficulites but we could have changed some of our structure.


In science we are learning structures and forces. We were asked to make a chair out of paper and be able to sit on it. Our group sucsessfully sat on it and stayed in all the marking criteria. The only thing we should change is the leg structure and inside the structure so it will have more support because of tension when we sit, it tries to pull the legs apart. We put beams in the middle of the structure for more support.
