What controls your body temperature?

Denyce, Dora, Adrian, Aiden.

The body temperature is controlled by your hypothalamus. Your hypothalamus is in the middle of your brain. It is an organ in your brain. It also controls hunger, emotional activity, sleeping, and other. A normal body temperature is 37C. It is most people’s normal, and some people have a different normal. When we are sick we lose heat. When the germs enter your body, it enters your bloodstream, and eventually, your hypothalamus hears about it and raises or drops your heat level. When you are sick it can go up to 100F or even higher

How Do We Stop Bullying

Bullying can be a force that is used on others. They are 6 types of bullying; there is physical bullying, verbal bullying, indirect bullying, social bullying, intimidation, and cyber bullying.  The most common types of bullying are verbal bullying, physical bullying, and cyber bullying.  Cyber bullying is much worse than physical bullying.
Cyber bullying is the worst type of bullying because you can’t get away from it. Cyber bullying is someone who is texting you threats and saying something that you don’t feel comfortable about. Some people are so scared of bullying that they skip school.  Some people are so beat down that they do something that is unhealthy and safe. Kids might not get their sleep because they don’t want to wake.  They may not be able to eat or drink like their mind needs to finish growing. They may find themselves in risky situations while trying to avoid school by skipping. They may try to stop the upset feelings by drinking or using drugs. Some may even think about hurting or killing themselves or the bully. This can happen especially when teenagers don’t have someone they trust to help out.
Bullying is really bad and can get really bad. It can get so bad that teenagers cut themselves or even try to commit suicide. Bullying can force someone to change schools or even home school.  Bullying can cause somebody to cry themselves to sleep. 

Bullying is not ok. If you see it happen report it.

Zach thinks bullying is bad because it leads to getting a low self-esteem and could lead to depression
Abi thinks that bullying is not ok. It can happen to anyone to make someone else feel bad to make them feel good  bullying can cause someone to threaten someone’s life.  


Why Is Snow White?
Aaliyah,Stewart, Cody

Snow is white because the colour of the sun light is reflected of the snow and shines on the ice crystals and makes it shine and it makes the shine white. Snow is made up of little ice crystals which means up close one snowflake looks clear. When it is all patted down it is all white because of the tiny particles in the snow.There are little water molecules that freeze together to make snowflakes. Snow is really just tiny ice particles just froze together to make snow.

Gold


What makes diamonds so hard?

Kaydn, Cameron, Keeshan, Hunter

The most common natural method of contraction of gold is through if the fluids moved over a large enough area, and dissolve minerals, such as quarts, this is why gold was found .  

Diamonds actually form from coal and the process is really long the coal gets in between rocks and they get squashed, with heat and they turn into diamonds.

The carbon atoms stick together really tight and form a tight bond to make it compact.

The diamond is actually not a rock

Diamonds can be very sharp because of the compact atoms they have surgery tools made of diamonds

They are also really small there are knife sharpeners that have diamonds in them

After being mushed together for a long period of time it’s also compact
