Aboriginal Perspective of Life

Today in science our class looked at the Aboriginal perspective of how life is centered around the idea of a balance in life. We talked about having harmony between mental, emotional, physical and spiritual components. After learning about the medicine wheel we made our own medicine wheels but personalized about ourselves.

Edible Cells


Our class has finished a project making edible cells.In this project we were trying to represent two different types of cells, plant and animal cells.Each group had a  $5.00 limit to buy supplies for our cells. We also had to label each part of the cell. Six parts for animal cells and eight parts for a plant cell. We had a time limit of 45 minutes to make our cell. After they were made we got to eat them!
Parts of a cell:
~Cell membrane
~Endoplasmic Reticulum
~Cell Wall (Plant only)
~Chloroplasts(Plant only)

The Cake Cell

Edible Cells

Edible Cake Cell

-our class is working on cell posters that labels the parts of cells
-we had half of the class working on animal cells and half the class working on plant cells
-we had to draw a picture of the cell then draw the 6-8 parts of the cell and then colour them in

-we will be working on making an edible cell model which has all the parts of the cell
-we have about 45 minutes to brainstorm what materials can be used
-my group is has thought of using vanilla icing as a cell membrane
-the nucleus is a cookie
-the vacuole will be jelly beans
-endoplasmic reticulum is going to be beef jerky and no I'm not kidding
-cytoplasm is going to be the Brownie
-the cell wall will be a fruit roll up

We also listened to a Mr. Parr song called Cells. It is also on our classrooom website.

We are talking about Cells and Systems.

Intro to Grade 8 Science

This year in grade 8 Science we are going to learn about:

1.The cell theory(Biology)

2.Light and optics(Psychics)


4.Water systems(Oceanography)

We're going to have fun because that is the point in school.

We'll use this blog to inform other people or other people in the class if there gone.

We'll use the following as educational tools:



3.We'll listen to music
