Hey Mr. woody i might but i was thinking that maybe for my wallchart i could do fish gills and how they work. Do you think thats a good idea???
By the way for anyone else reading this its copyrighted!!!

Mr Woody said...

good idea magster - i suggest you make it reeeally interesting by trying to find out if it's true or not that if you pull a fish through the water backwards it will drown.
you will need to explain how gills work and then decide if it's likely that the statement would be true or not and explain/justify your answer.

btw - magster - did you even read the topic of this post? use the blog carefully. it is not a random posting tool for your communication.

Hi Mr Woody,

You know how I am doing a wall chart about cells, well, can you give me a specific cell to do it about?

Mr Woody, we are meant to do the writing on the computer right?

Another thing, can we have time in class to do our science fair projects, because I am REALLY REALLY buy these holidays because of the production I am doing.
Please?

P.S. You should come to the show, it's on every weekday this week only.
The show is ALICE IN WONDERLAND and it's on at around 10.30 a.m.
Hope to see you there!

yeha it sounds like a cool site withn lots of helpful info.

People who are having trouble with their science fair should visit the site.

Mr Woody said...

pick any cell, ima. if yo udi dit on mitochondria you coudl talk about how intersting it is that mitochondira seem to show up in every typ eof cell. they are like cell power sources or somethin . investigate it...
yes, write it up on the computer in your own words and reference carefully everything you say.

I did read it and its about the science fair and if i do that drowning thing wouldn't i be doing the wrong category shouldn't that be the fair testing???
I've been looking everywhere for some info on fish gills and all I could find was 2 books with about a sentence about fish gills in them!
I looked on the internet and I couldn't find much and wikipedia had nothing so i'll check out that website it's my last hope! :(

P.S Howdy advertising her production doesn't have much to do with science either!!!

Magster the problem with your Internet searching might be your key words. Try looking for
how fish breathe
Good luck.

Mr Woody said...

thanks for the help while i was away mrs mcc - magster, well done for trying and for communicating via the blog - i don't want you to try to drown the fish, just refine your search terms and base your opinion on what you can find. if the drowning thing is too hard to find, just explain how they work - i was trying to make it more interesting for you/us.
and can someone phone blondbob and tell her to look at the written instructions i have given out three times in class...aaaiieee!!!!!!
