Should There Be Zoos? by Zirui

Have you ever wondered about whether a zoo is a good place or a bad place? This week we started reading a book called Should There Be Zoos? It talked about the good parts and the bad parts about zoos. A good example is zoos can help endangered animals and save them from dangers in the wild. But there are also people arguing that zoos can be harmful to animals. They said that in some zoos conditions and not very good and animals are not treated very well. That will cause them to have a disease called zoochosis. It is a very interesting book because it is about two sides arguing about whether or not there should be zoos. Maybe you should think about that question.

Space - Our Next Science Unit by Gage

On Wednesday, we started a new Science unit on space. We began by finding cool facts on outer space. I wanted to know all about neutron stars. I looked up a cool fact online which is about neutron stars, then I put it on a Google Slide. The fact said that, “Neutron stars can spin at a rate 0f 600 rotations per second.” Ms. Barnett will be printing all our slides and putting them around the Science classroom. I am sure this will make our room look like outer space.

Ancient China by Christian

In social studies we are learning about ancient China and how things they invented affected their economy. For example, steel replaced cast iron because it was stronger and affected its economy because people wanted a strong metal.

Should There Be Zoos? by Ben

We are deciding if zoos are a good or bad thing. We are reading about this issue! We are watching videos. It will be hard to decide.

This week in science we are starting a new unit on space. I have learned that Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System.The colorful bands of Jupiter are arranged in dark belts and light zones created by strong east-west winds in the planet's upper atmosphere traveling more than 400 mph.
