For my what’s the matter project I made a podcast about fossil fuel. In the podcast, I had to explain the chemical/physical changes that happen when it is used/burned the cons and pros of the topic. During this project, I learned how to make a podcast but I knew most of the information beforehand and nothing was really surprising. I chose to make a podcast because I just thought of it and thought it would be cool with no real reason. the podcast link is right here: fossil fuels
Here some facts that are in my project
- carbon dioxide is made of 2 oxygen atoms and 1 carbon atom
- carbon monoxide is made of 1 carbon atom and 1 oxygen atom
- fossil fuels are burned to make electrical energy
- fossil fuels come in all forms of matter
- fossil fuels generate lots of energy at a single location
I wasn’t really proud of anything nor did I enjoy anything. I wouldn’t really do anything differently except choose a different format. for the future, i hope i don’t do this project again because i don’t like projects they are incredible boring and take a lot of time.

Today I will be solving 3 questions
I improvised a technique/used no technique for all of them
the question above is the problem solving one
the question is shown in the video
the question above is the subtraction one

LET THEM TURTLES BREATHE
Did you know that an estimated 200,000 metric tons of plastic waste, i.e burnt or dumped, is created by Coca-Cola every year. I present a solution that is the coca-cola bottle cap sieve so kids can enjoy using the coca cap to sieve the sands and have lots of fun. They will find these caps around plastic polluted beaches and can use them there, encouraging them to keep them. This cap can also be used for other things like storing small things. Coca-cola has increased its number of single-use plastic bottles by 31% since 2008 and tons of sea animals, including turtles eat said plastic, think it’s food and die.
Over 1,000 turtles die each year of entanglement in plastic. Hatchlings and young turtles are the most vulnerable to eating plastic because they don’t care much about what they eat, unlike elder turtles. This causes harm to their digestive system and can be poisonous. Over 1 million marine animals (including mammals, fish, sharks, turtles, and birds) are killed each year due to plastic in the ocean. This needs to stop, we need to start reusing our pollution instead of throwing them out. Coca-cola caps can be used for more than this, they can be used as wheels, DIY stuff but never should be thrown into the ocean.
Graph in millions
Global plastic rates
The United States produces 37.83M tonnes of plastic a year and Canada with 1.15M tonnes of plastic a year, Dominican with 520,238 tonnes of plastic a year. Asia inputs 86% of the world’s plastic input by rivers, now that’s a lot of plastic! But not all that plastic goes into the ocean as the global ocean only has 268.950 tonnes of plastic. The grand pathway of plastic pollution
91% of plastic hasn’t been recycled. That is very bad for the environment. There are probably countless cute turtles dying from the plastic. To stop this abomination that is plastic pollution you can reuse stuff, use my bottle cap and others, and throw plastic in the trash instead of littering.
REMEMBER LET THEM TURTLES BREATH
Difference between rocks and minerals and how to extract rocks or minerals.
A rock is an inorganic and a solid naturally-formed substance. A mineral is also a solid, inorganic, substance as that of the rock which has a definite crystalline structure
We make things out of rocks and minerals like jewelry
To properly take a rock out from the soil you loosen the soil then dig around it then pull it out gently.
Types of rocks
igneous rocks are formed when magma cools or sets the characteristics are dark-colored holes and hot.
Near volcanoes and underground
.Example obsidian diorite andesite
Metamorphic rocks are formed from extreme heat and pressure
characteristics are foliated textures random crystal orientation and mineral grains grow larger as metamorphism increases
Location: anywhere in the world
Examples marble schist and slate
Sedimentary rocks are formed from weather erosion
Location: basically anywhere
Example: coral and fossils
rock research project
Basalt is an igneous rock found in volcanoes all over the world and is usually formed due to lava flow and is very abundant in earth crust basalt is used as a rock dust fertilizer for plants and people melt basalt to create pipes
Limestone is a very common type of carbonate sedimentary rock limestone is formed when droplents with calcium carbonate leak through cave ceilings evaporate limestone is found anywhere where an ancient sea existed usually on continental crust limestone is mostly used in architecture.
Marble can be found all over the world and is formed by subjecting limestone to extreme pressure or heat
marble is a metamorphic rock.
and is used for making and decorating houses and architecture
Welcome! Blankville is a village where all is seeable but also invisible.
The villagers are invisible but the landscape isn’t so you can see their footprints therefore they are visible.
Blankville is located in the center of the earth where it is very hot as they need the magma there to stay invisible. Blankville members stay invisible to avoid being eaten by predators but they are very dim-minded because no predators can get into the center of the earth.
1.No being visible. You must always be invisible at all time
2.There are other rules
Bankville is located deep underneath the arctic
At the center of the earth to stay safe and warm the citizens chose this area to be safe from predators winter and cold weather. They also chose this area for easy metal forging and a lot of iron. Blankville looks completely invisible because every road is invisible but the houses aren’t the houses, in fact, are little rock houses that blend in The roads are very slippery so blankville citizens traverse very carefully while moving slowly on the roads for the highways blankville members move super quickly at the off course roads which don’t have rails blankville citizens fall down into the lava sometimes so citizens move very slowly and carefully.
The current president of blankville is sir blank the XXV meaning sir blank the 25th
And the vice president of blankville is Miss.Blankess the XXX meaning Miss blankess the 30th.
The president of blankville gets to decide whatever the blankians do this leads to a lot of rebellions. Here is the official flag of blankville
1.Fast of blank this holiday is a special holiday where everybody fasts and goes above into the cold and is visible to sacrifice their lives to the president if willing. This is also a sad holiday where everyone mourns the dead. The holiday occurs on February 29th every leap year
2.Holiday of the blank
This holiday is a holiday of Joy where the president throws a party and everyone celebrates along with this every young blankville citizen will get a surprise box in their mail from the president This holiday occurs on the last day of each month.
3.The blank 7 day party
On this holiday There is no school, no work, everything is just fun. Also, 1 lucky citizen gets to be president for the week. The citizen is chosen in a raffle then a competition.
Today we got to make a cookie project
What we did was predict how much chocolate chips were in the cookie the bottom and the top
for me I found 21 chocolate chips total I predicted 16 chocolate chips 10 on the top and 6 on the bottom we excavated the cookies using toothpicks
we also had to draw what the cookie looked like before excavation.
A geologist is a person who studies rocks and minerals to predict things that might happen in the future.
My project was the elevator I am using a fixed pulley because I do not want the pulley to turn around. Here is a video about different types of pulleys:
1. I got a box and cut the bottom
2. I put a dowel in between
3. I put in a string
4. I attached the string to the platform
5.I attached 3 cardboard pieces together to make another box
6. I attached the box to it
4.tape and hot glue
My hypothesis was that it would go up/down depending on how the string i knew this because pulleys work by spinning the thing that pulls something up(aka pulley) that is attached to the platform so when I spin it the platform goes up.
My conclusion was correct the pulley pulled up the platform and the system work however I did have to make some adjustments. My adjustments were:
1.Cutting a lot of the box to make space
2.Attaching two boxes together because one wasn’t enough
3.Creating support platforms for it to stand
4.Using a bigger dowel because the smaller one couldn’t fit
5. The first one broke so I had to remake most of the pulley system and add more support to stop it from falling
Peter wins a contest and gets a turtle as a reward then he introduces us to his family his mom fudge and his dad someone who works for the advertisement company Fudge is a young and messy person.
Fudge gets his dad mad at him by not eating and his dad takes him to the bath and dumps his cereal on him. Peter gets secretly happy because his mom gets mad at fudge which rarely happens.
In the later parts
we get introduced to shea
and Fudge, Peter, Shiela, go to the park peter has to babysit fudge with Shiela, Shiela is the leader fudge falls down and gets a few teeth lost believing he can fly his mother comes in and doesn’t get mad at Shiela and goes home with Peter in Peters house Peters mom gets very mad at him and Peter goes into his room and closes the door later his mom gets in and apologizes.
In the end, I think fudge and peter will have
a big break because they’ve been doing lots of things together maybe move to another country.
I would recommend this book to ages of 5-11
because of vocabulary and it’s very funny too
I would give this a 4-star rating because
- It’s a pretty short book
- It is filled with funny parts
- I like the way fudge is kind of the main antagonist but peter is.
- There’s is a moral that is pay attention to what you’re assigned to even if you don’t like it.
