Heat (#1)

Hey guys!
So... okay, first off, I'm really sorry I haven't been posting anything... it's been a while.... like, a long while.

ANYWAYS... I'll get to the point-and as the title says, HEAT. For the past couple months, our class has been doing science experiments, on the subject of heat. We've done things like the Particle Theory of Matter, the difference between HEAT and TEMPERATURE, as well as the three different types of temperature-Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin. As well as classifying things into conduction, convection and radiation, the different states of matter-just to name a few.

We've also been talking about how climate change affects all of us, animals and insects included. I think it's important to remember that what we do as humans, (like burning toxic waste, etc...) affects EVERYONE and EVERYTHING living on this planet. We often take things for granted, acting selfishly, and forget the fact that what we do now, affects other people around the world, as well as future generations; like our kids, and their kids....

All this has been incorporated into one MASSIVE and GIANT project-our heat menu.

Carson and I (a/n: Or is it me and Carson...??? I'll never figure out the proper way to say that sentence.... haha.... could someone correct me in the comments section below as to which one is the correct way of saying... 'Carson and I' ?) have been working together to make this 'Heat Menu' which basically is doing an experiment, and writing down conclusions (Appetizer), read an article about how heat affects... us (Drink), do an experiment outside, with the thermometers, (Main Course), and finally, make a final 'presentation' (which could be anything, really) as to show what we have learned about heat, and how it affects us.

This just sums up what we have been doing-but I will explain everything in more detail in the next few blog posts!!!!

Stay tuned for more!

(P.S: go and check out Carson's blog-she's amazing and awesome and super funny...
