Why Big Things Are Heavy?
By: James Swaine.
You know how when you lift up big things and some are heavy? Why are they heavy? How are they heavy? One of the obvious reasons is it has a lot of pressure. There are other reasons why. Like when you’re carrying a backpack, it can be heavy for one reason: You put a lot of stuff in it or heavy stuff in it. Moving a table will take some time if you are doing it yourself because it has a lot of pressure and made out of wood usually, but if it’s a small table, you will be done in no time. School chairs are kind of heavy because they have some pressure, but home chairs can be really heavy because of all the pressure and there made of hard material. Couches are heavy even though there soft but just because it’s soft doesn’t mean it’s not really heavy. The weight depends on size. Weight = How much you weigh. For example if you weigh 150 pounds and stand on little chair you can break it. Pounds is your weight. Even though you’re bigger and stronger than your little brother/sister doesn’t mean he/she isn't heavy. Carrying 10 big books will be kind of heavy because of the books pressure and the amount you’re carrying. If you’re going to carry stuff to another area and there big, then take very little of the item at a time. Moving to other places take some time because of the stuff you need to carry from your house, and some stuff are really heavy which can slow you down, so i suggest that you take your time. Dense is what can make things heavy, dense is when you put different things/parts together to create 1 object so it can make it heavier and better. Student chairs in schools are dense but not as dense as other chairs. Books are also dense because of the amount of pages inside the book. The pages in books can be different sometimes, some are really white and soft.
Last Names
By, Heaven, Jorja, Tyson and kiera

The main reason is your ancestor’s last name. So easily they just had the same last name. 2 people can have the same last name but not be related. There are some things that increase the possibility of having that the same last name like, if the last name is rare, if the last name is hard to spell or if its refers to a small town.  There are some things that can decrease the chance of being related like, if the last name is common like smith or baker, if the last name is a color thing or place like small, if the last name refers to a first name like john or Anderson. You are not related to everyone with the same last name. It’s also very possible for you to be related to someone with a different last name, it maybe your part of family changed their last name, or you could have step parents and step siblings that have a different last name as you but you’re still related.  if your last name is smith your ancestors were black smiths. If Carter they were carters. The same with sawyer, bakers were baker

Why do leaves only change colors in the fall?
Matthew H, Mason, Harper, Moody

The chlorophyll in the leaves breaks down in the fall. Chlorophyll is the green pigments in the leaves. The chlorophyll breaks down because there is not enough lite and water. Not all leaves change color in the fall. The leaves usually change color in North America. Trees maintain three types of pigments. The three pigments are carotene, anthocyanin, and photosynthetic. Pine needles stay green all year around. If the leaves stay on the tree for more than a year the leave turns brown in the fall. Also if it is to hot the leaves will turn brown and when the leave falls of the tree it turns brown. For years scientists have tried the find the changes that has happened to the trees. Some leaves can fall when they are green. Different trees the leaves can turn different colors. Leaves can change color even when it is not fall. Tannins are the brown color in leaves.

Why do we have allergies?
 By: Emma Marlene and Keely !!!!!!!! J L

People have allergic reactions to things because the immune system mistakes the thing that you are allergic to for a serious threat, that’s why the body try’s to sometimes sneeze it out.  Your risk of developing an allergy starts in your genes. If your parents have an allergy to something than you might be eligible to having that allergy too.  For some reason, people who are allergic to peanuts can also be allergic to tree nuts, such as almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pistachios, pecans, and cashews. The body's immune system normally fights infection. But, when someone is allergic to tree nuts or peanuts, the immune system overreacts to proteins in these foods. Some symptoms of an allergic reactions are: wheezing, coughing, sneezing, trouble breathing, hives, diarrhea, swelling, stomachache, vomiting, watery and red eyes, throat tightening and many more. Some cases of allergies you can die from because you throat starts to close (this is only in the most severe cases). You can be allergic to more than one thing at a time. There are certain medications that you can be allergic to. The body can be allergic to anything.

Who discovered space?


Emily and BRAYDON

On July 14th NASA headquarters had a discussion in Washington, D.C. The scientists discussed a space plan to find life in outer space. Space was likely founded millions of years ago. NASA is still looking for life in the solar system. NASA is mostly looking for life on Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. People believe the first person on earth discovered space but no one had space ships or telescopes yet. Other people believe the first person to discover space was Tycho Brahe along with other people. No one probably knows who did discover space now because it was probably millions of years ago and back then no one had technology and everyone from those times are dead now. How did someone discover there was no gravity in space? In the 18th century measurements at sea level and on tops of mountains showed that atmospheric pressure decreased. That is when no gravity in space was discovered. What is NASA? NASA is all about discovering new stuff about space and NASA is also a place where people get sent up into space.

How do Animals get rabies?
Mason and Alison

Animals can start off with rabies when they are born. These animals are Racoons, Bats, Skunks, and Foxes. Animals get rabies when they get bitten or even scratched by an animal that has rabies. They can also get rabies if saliva gets in an open cut, or a wound. The most likely animal to get rabies is a dog, because they are always outside and around a lot of different animals. People are able to get rabies. They can get it if a dog bites them, licks them, or it rubs it nose against their hands or any part of their skin. If a human gets bitten by any animal with rabies, and they don’t give medicine to the virus their brain can swell up and they can die. If they are not mammals they can’t get rabies. It can only infect mammals. Animals with rabies are usually known to have white foam coming out of their mouth. Rabies are only in the saliva. It is a virus. It is called virus neurotropic lyssavirus. There is a medicine to treat rabies it is called Postexposure Prophylaxis. To get the special medicine in your body you have to get a 5-inch needle in your stomach. For dogs, if they have rabies they will live for 2-3 days then there body weakens and they eventually die, unless they are treated before 3 days.  Every 10 minutes someone dies from rabies, because something bites them, scratches them, or licks them. If an animal or human gets bit and the animal has rabies, it changes their behavior so they won’t think properly, so they try to commit suicide.
