Car Wash

The car wash is fun to go in.  It looks cool while it is washing your car.  I like the scrubers, water sprayers and the air blowers.  You can wash the car and you don’t even have to drive.  We say “Yeah” when we get to go in the car wash.  That is why it is fun to go in the car wash.

Science Board

•May 20, 2008 • Leave a Comment

I am doing a project at school called a Science Board.  We have to use stick-on letters that are one inch tall.  You have to trace your title.  My title is “Batter’s Blast.”  The boards have graphics on them.  That is what Science Boards are. 

Here is a what I have on my Science Board:

Batter’s Blast 
Question: Does a major league baseball go farther when hit by a wooden or a metal bat?
Hypothesis: I think that the wooden bat will hit the major league baseball farther than the metal bat.

Procedure:

1. Gather a wooden bat, a metal bat, 5 numbered major league baseballs and a measuring wheel.

2. Go to an open field with a parent or buddy who can pitch the ball to you.

3. Hit a ball five times with the wooden bat and measure the distance of each hit using the measuring wheel.

4. Record the distances for the wooden bat.

5. Hit a ball five times with the metal bat and measure the distance of each hit using the measuring wheel.

6. Measure the distance that each ball traveled and record the distances.

7. Record the distances for the metal bat.

8. Repeat the experiment 5 times.

9. Prepare a graph of your results.

Findings:  The average distance that I hit the baseball with a wooden bat was 96.3 feet.  The average distance that I hit the baseball with a metal bat was 90.6 feet.

Conclusion: My hypothesis was correct. The wooden bat hit the major league baseball farther than the metal bat.

 
 
 
 
 

 

    

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tag

I do not like playing tag.  I only play if there aren’t any other third graders to play with who are doing something else.  I do not like tag because I am not a fast runner so everyone goes after me.  I am “it” a lot. 

I reported to my class in current events that a school in Colorado banned tag on its playground.  A lot of kids like tag, so I am glad that they did not ban tag at my school.  I will just try to find something else to do.

Tomorrow I will do a report on Chien-Shiun Wu.  She was the person I picked out of a hat.  This will not be easy.  The report is a pantomime.  She was a Physicist.  How to you pantomime a Physicist?  HELP!!  HURRY!!

Indoor Recess

•February 17, 2008 • Leave a Comment

It rained 2 days this week.  We had to have indoor recess, which I hate.  Here is why I hate indoor recess:

  • it feels like the recess is shorter
  • there are not as many things to play that I like
  • you can’t run
  • you can’t use a ball
  • we stay in our classroom
  • you don’t get to see friends from other classes

I am glad it doesn’t rain very often.
