Science| BANANA | Erik

In Science I have been reading a article about how Banana peels can be used to remover metals from water !!
Gustavo Castro has found out this amazing thing.

  • In this article since has being used in some of the words for example : carboxylic acids
    Since was also used to explain how the banana reacts with the water .

  • discuss and analyze how the science will affect people and the world (politically, economically, socially, morally, ethically, etc)

  • This cool discovery might help some pore people in Africa who have water from a river that it dirty from some kind of factory so then they could use some bananas from the jungle and use the peels to clean there water and as the article said you can use it 11 times till it will stop cleaning the water. That again means that they won’t get sick that fast because the water they are drinking is clear .higher level words i did not clearly understand when i read the article the first time are :
    -seemingly
    – binding
    -purifiers

    Hear is the arctical if you want to read it :

Drama | Stereotype | Can you judge a book by it’s cover ? | First Drama post 8th grade

As you might found out if you where checking my blog you might found out that i started 8th grade 3 weeks ago
Same as last  year we  are also getting drama as a normal class agin.

In the last drama lesson we where looking at stereotypes so one the the questions was “What dose stereotype mean ?”
It basically means the out side image from a some thing (Person,thing ,animal…)
for  example:
if we take this picture from a subway in Tokyo
“Rush Hour on the Subway.” Flickr. Yahoo!, n.d. Web. 14 Sept. 2014.

Her we can see a men in the middle the stereotype of that person would be ” He looks clean and organised, he must be a wealthy person that makes enough money.” Maybe he his completely different it is only the stereotype of that person. So you can’t judge him after his out side.

That leads us to the next point that we discus in class.
Can you judge a book by it’s cover?
If you look at the example pic we just used you can properly not.
but you can basically get a ruff idea of what it is about/his life is about.

So that is When stereotypes are useful. They are useful to get the main idea of that person/book/animal/thing  so a dirty smoking person that is siting on the street is properly nor a person you would “hang out with” Because you jugged from the stereotype that he dosen’t have that good influence on you. 

I hoped you like my short post about what we did last drama lesson.

Let me know in the comments what i can improve or if you want more of this thanks “ERIK”

Smart goals | Your strength | Tutor | ERIK

My Smart goals for the year
I will try to achieve two goals !

The first goal i am trying to improve is in math i will try to improve my skills with fractions
WHY ? Well i never learned how to do fraction because our math teacher in 3 grade didn’t teach us.
And i never had the need of learning them for math. But now we are using fractions on almost every math question our math teacher  is giving us. I will try to achieve this goal till christmas.

The second goal i will be trying to achieve is getting better at soccer Especially shooting I am not the best shooter when i have a place i need to shoot at. I am really good in passing but i am not really good with passing. I will try to finish this in the middle of the soccer after school activity

In class we where trying out this cool web site where you can answer some questions and then you see what you are good in. Hear is the link if you want to try it out LINK . My top score was in Body movement I got 5 out of 5 points.  I think that this is correct because in real life i do do a lot of sports. Then as 2 i had social i think this is also correct because i do hate being alone and i love communicating. I also make friends really easy witch some times can be a big problem
