Does air have weight?

Does Air Have Weight?

Yes, I do think air has weight. Because during and after you run, you start puffing and the air would come in with your body. You will get stitches and get heavy.

Plain paper
Good karate chopper
And something to put the ruler on. (make sure half of the ruler is on the table and half off the edge)

Step 1: Put the ruler half on the table and half off the edge of it. As you karate chop the ruler you will see the ruler come off and just land on the floor.

Step 2: Pick the ruler back up and put it back on the halfway position. Put some stuffed up paper on top and karate chop that and as it falls, the ruler goes down before the paper.

Step 3: Get another paper put leave it flat on top of the ruler. Now, karate chop that, but does the ruler only go down, yes. How about the paper, no. Why. Look at the explanation below.

Explanation: You see, the only reason that the paper didn't go, is because the air is pushing itself on top of the piece of flat paper.


Who else sees Lily's hands and hair tie?

Don't close your eyes Ollie!! The ruler is coming.

Is that Turbo?

Who want a turn?

Lets go to the diving bored!!!

Mathletics Reflection

Reflection for
· Something I was pleased with was doing my best during mathletics for the competition.
…because I would be really proud of myself and would like to hear great support.

what I enjoyed was creating more mathletics and using them for ideas.
…because drawing very creative ones I can add them with the one that I am doing for the competition.

· Something I found hard was doing the mathletics design pass design 12. Because design 15 was a challenge, and sometimes design 4 which is under 12.

· Something that made me think was that if I do a long and hard design, then I wouldn't be able to finish it in time.
…because I would want to do design 15 and start putting all the designs in between the squares.

· Something I want to get better at is doing the designs with a radius, compass, and a protractor.
(What can I do about it?)
Something I can do about it is that I can try and do my very Personal Best so that I can get better and better by getting use to it.

Letter To Ken Catran

Dear Ken Catran my name is Ellis, and I would like to say,that your book Dead Harry is the best. My feelings for your book would be very exciting because I really thought it will be scary because of the title but I thought it was really funny. I thought it was all funny and really really cool because the sentences and the words were quite cool and my classroom thought your book was interesting.

My favorite characters would be the two boys Harry, and Sam because once, we did a dead Harry trailer and I got the part to be Sam and I think the trailer went well. The rest of the class also did the trailers and their trailer went really great. And I also think our trailers went awesome. It's on our class blog the Tree Of Pride and you might see them before any other posts will be on there. And the trailers are full of drama and great actions. Some of us used the same places but it was still great.

My favorite part in the book is when this man said “ Have a good barbeque”, and that is when the whole class started laughing and I pretty much noticed that he wanted to kill Sam. My teacher Mr Moriarty said “ He was going to kill Sam, Oh my goodness, you guys have a bad sense of humour”, but we all said that it sounded weird and funny. Sam must of found something weird and mysterious about the Russian cooking guy.

So thank you for sharing your awesome and mysterious book of Dead Harry. It was very very interesting. It was full of comedy like Eddie Murphy and I think he is so hilarious. Keep up your awesome writing and books. And make them really funny.

Your sincerely, Ellis F.

Money Making Mice

 How To Play Money Making Mice

You will need an cash record sheet ( see copy master). 2-4 players in the game. 1 counter each. 1 dice. Place the counter on the start on your own book. Each player starts at $50. Record your score carefully on your copy of the cash book record sheet. Ask other players for help if you need too. Take turns to throw the dice and move your counter forward that number of spaces. If you land on a space with a sum of money on it, add the amount to or subtract it from your total. If you land on mouse wheel do nothing. If you land on a piece of cheese, choose one of the options from the cheese center. Players are out of the game if their bank balance goes below zero. Continue going around the mouse board until one player has a balance of exactly $200. That person is the winner.

Reflection for Money Making Mice
· Something I was pleased with was my team was being honest and we all were taking turns.
…because It helped us get more money in this game.
· I really enjoyed learning was to learn the game.
…because it was really fun and I was the winner on the 2nd round.
· Something I found hard was trying not to get my self in the subtraction and the mouse trap including the wheels.
· Something that made me think was Should I role a five or a six.
                  …because If I rolled a five then I will get $50 more. And if I roll a six then I will go on cheese and choose a prize. Well it depends what the dice says.
· Something I want to get better at is winning all rounds when I compete.
          (What can I do about it?)
I can practice by playing with someone else.
