    Sailor Stuff

    I am learning about Christopher Columbus and sailors in my homeschool. The sailors had to know knots to be accepted onto the boats as help. Knots help them mend the boat while moving and sail across the Atlantic Ocean. The reef knot is a circle knot they would use for bundling ropes together. The clove hitch ends the rope against the wooden bar. The bowline knot is more like something you would tie into a sail. The knots were hard to learn, but they were useful in sailing.

    Genghis Khan

    I went to the Genghis Khan exhibit at the tech museum in San Jose today. I learned some things about him. He was a powerful conquerer. His insightful strategies were destructive to the surrounding lands. The moguls lived in ger. A ger has two poles for structure and is a leather-made round tent. I liked the weapons because they were slick and grooved with symbols on the blades. They also had scorpions and trebuchets as artillery.

    match maze

    I made this maze with a penny matchbox, masking tape and a small bead.
    Fold the tape in half. Make lines and put in a bead where the start is. Tilt and flick the edges to make the bead move.

    Whistler's Mother at the De Young

    Whistler's Mother is a picture from the movie Mr. Bean and its last visit in a America was in 1933. Its home land is Paris where it was origanaly painted by James Macniell Whistler who was American born. Whistler's Mother is a picture of blends of shapes, strokes and colors. Close up, it looks like foliage but far away it looks like this:

    The picture in the background of Whistler's Mother is an etching of his earlier work, the Black Lion Wharf:

    Whistler originally was going to have a younger model pose, but she fell ill. So, he turned to his mother for a model. She is sitting in the picture, because she is old and frail. Using different types of brush strokes, Whistler created both the detail in her face, hat, lace and hands, and the essence of her clothes, room and curtain.

    This is supposedly the 4th most recognizable work of art.

    Eye O Playdough

    How To Make An Eye

    I used 4 cans of playdough and 2 tools.
     First form a pice of goop into a bowl-like form like so:
    (This is called a Sclerotic Coat)
    Then form a red peice of dough into a ball that will fit into the bowl:
    (this will be the firm jelly that is in the middle of our eye)
                                                             Then mold the yellow over the red:
    Then shape a circle like pad of green with a hole in it:
    Then put a small piece of blue in the hole of green.
    Fold the green over the yellow and red:
    Now make another yellow bowl like piece.
    Shape it over the green ball:
    The green is the retna. Blue is the pupil. Yellow is the eye lid.
                                       After that, cut it in half to see what the inside of our eye is like:

    He is so big!!!


    the three whales im talking about are the Sperm Whale BlueWhale and Toothed Whales .

    The first whale is the Sperm Whale their favorite food is giant squid the squids min length of 43 feet long the whale has to go 2.5 miles under water to find his prey. to go down deep it has to take a huge breath wich he(or she)stores it in his muscle.

     The Blue Whale is bigger then the biggest dinosaur ever found on Earth. The blue whale would out weigh 32 elephants. All it eats is tiny plankton......Krill.

    The Bottlenose Dolphin can tell if theres wood plastic or metal in the trainers hand by clicking that sound transfers thru there melon,the head of the dolphin, hits the object and comes back diffrently. The Bottlenosed Dolphins is also known for saving people.

    All whales are fascinating.

    And fat.

    Ostrich Fern

    Adiantum Pedatum


    Fiddle Fern

     California Polypody

    Holly Fern Woodsia

    Ferns like living in moist areas like under the sequoia trees in California. Ferns can even grow in redwood tree bark. Ferns are very old. The leafy branch of a fern is called a frond. On the bottom of a frond you can see little growths. These are sporangia which contain spores that grow into a heart shaped plant called a prothallus. The spores are seeds and can grow into plants. The spores float in the air until they land on the ground and grow into a heart shaped plant called a prothallus.

    Justin Morgan Horses

    Morgan horses are a mystery breed.  No one knows which family they are from.
    All they know is that they are really fast and work very, very hard. The first Morgan horse was named after his owner, Justin Morgan, who was a school master and great singer. After he died his name was given to Bub, the horse, who was a small, fast, hard working steed. He ran races and won every time. He also was a spectacular pulling horse and was famous for pulling large loads. The War of 1812 took place in his lifetime. He was also in a parade with the presedent of the United States, James Monroe. This parade was the first time he heard the Star Spangled Banner sung. This song was written after the War of 1812.

    I like rain because we get huge puddles, thunder and hail.
    We have huge puddles cause road workers built a new road and all the water stays by the side road.I ride my bike in every one and my back got soaked.
    In winter it thundered a lot. It roared and yelled, but it still was fun to listen.
    It hailed two times and both times it
     was  the size of peas and you could hear it a mile away. This is why I love winter.

    Animals Need Trees

    Beavers use trees to build dams. Dams can be up to 40 feet long and 10 feet high. They also make scent mounds that mark their territory.

    Tree Frogs have big toe pads so they can stick to trees.

    Monkeys use trees for travel. They swing from tree to tree.

    Squirrels use trees to escape from preditors and to store their food.

    Salamanders use decaying trees to hide under, to keep them cool and out of the sun.

    Rooted Things

     This is my Science for school. These are all plants from the neighborhood. Roots are like sponges that absorb water. And if you see a bulb, think of it as a food store. Roots are also structures for the plants. They can be twice the size of the plant.

    I just read Rascal and its a great book by Sterling North. Sterling  is a person who loved to explore, and never gave up. His book is a story of 1 year in his life as a kid. His dog Wowser found a stump that had a racoon family in it. Sterling took one of the babies and raised it in his home. This young boy was raised by his dad. He had a brother named Herschel who was away fighting in WWI. He had 2 sisters who had grown and moved away. With no one to look after him, he was very adventurous.  Of course, Rascal, his pet racoon, was always with him. At the end of the year, Sterling sets Rascal free. Rascal finds his mate, and lives happily ever after. This was a really good book even though the part about letting Rascal go was sad.

    Sterling north lived in a home at 409 West Rollin Street, Wisconson. This has been restored into a museum. Sterling North published his most famous work, Rascal, in 1963. Sterling North's maternal grandparents, James Hervey Nelson and Sarah Orelup Nelson, were Wisconsin pioneers. After graduating from Edgerton High School, he earned his way through the University of Chicago and began his writing career. He wrote for The Chicago Daily News, The New York World-Telegram and Sun, and for many magazines, including Reader's Digest, The Atlantic, Esquire.
