Microscope ; Fifth grade science ; Homeschool

 Microscope ; Fifth grade science During the 7th week of homeschool, the days were rainy and dark. I looked out the window as I tapped on the desk with my pencil. It gave me a memory of when I was in 5th grade. It was a rainy day when my science class was learning about microscopes. “Remember, scientists use these special... bla bla bla” is what I listened to. I didn’t pay attention at all. But now, I missed learning at school and I wish I was more focused on doing my work. Homeschool however, is still really fun if you make your own rules and lessons.  As I said, when I was in fifth grade, we learned about parts of the microscope during science class. I gotta admit, I wasn't really interested into that topic at first, but I became fascinated when we actually got to use them. What really pissed me off, was the memorizing part. The part were you had to know every single part of the microscope and study it for a test. Luckily, it was easier than I thought and I figured what an eyepie

The Neolithic Era and civilization ; 6th grade history ; Home school

  The Neolithic Era and civilization ; 6th grade history ; Home school     Before I get into the facts,    I need to infer something I never thought I would admit. Keeping a blog is VERY useful with all capital that is. A blog can help u look back of what you did in the past days, weeks or years. In fact, these recordings won’t be just for you, having a blog can inspire others as well. Anyways, today’s “lesson” will be about the Neolithic Era. The Neolithic Era started at 8000 BCE and ended at 4000 BCE. The Great Migration was when many humans moved from Africa to different parts of the world. When the nomands (Nomands are people who travels with no permanent home) moved, they decided to have a sedentary life, meaning they stayed in one place. This is what the Neolithic Era is mostly known for. But this system influenced many other stuff too.  One of the most important thing during the Neolithic Era was farming. You see, when humans were nomads, they didn’t have to farm because you can

Jones Beach; Homeschool field trip

 Jones Beach; Homeschool field trip  During the sixth week of homeschool, we decided to go on our second field trip to Jones Beach. And of course, we had to wear a mask. I wasn’t really into that idea at first. “It’s outside anyways” I reminded my mom. “Yes I know,” she replied. “But you know, just in case. And also it will block the wind and sand from going on your face.” I shoved myself into the car, still unsatisfied but obeyed the commands to I was given. When we arrived, I felt the salty air, even though I had my mask on. Then I heard my mom gasp as she pointed at the beach. It was completely isolated. There was not even a single person enjoying the ocean. We only saw a few elderly eating at a boardwalk.   “Should we go back home?” she asked in a worried and   serious tone. “No” I insisted. “We’re already here and I don’t see why it will be so dangerous.” I added. With a bit a faith, she followed as I marched through the dusty sand. It felt real     good, since we haven’t been out

Digestive system ; Sixth grade science ; Homeschool

 Digestive system; Sixth grade science Did you know that the digestive progress doesn’t start in the stomach? Or did you know your body uses two types of digestions? During the 5th week of home school, I’ve been learning about the digestive system, and I’ve been longing to share these wacky and informative facts. I’ve gotten this information from 180 days of science of sixth grade and everything you need to know to ace science.  What is a digestive system?:  The digestive system takes and breaks down food, collects nutrients that was in the food and expels the leftover out of the body. The digestive system starts from the mouth and ends at the large intestine. Our body uses two types of digestion. The first is mechanical and the second is chemical digestion. Mechanical digestion is when your body physically breaks down food (like what the stomach does for example). Chemical digestion is when your body breaks down food with chemical reaction, or acids in your body (The stomach uses chem
