Grade 9 Academic Science Culminating Performance Task
If I would have to have a green environment house, my house would be located in the temperate deciduous forest. The reason why is because of the temperature, its not to hot not to cold, also I want to live in a temperate deciduous forest because of all the plants and animals that are their. Also I wanna live in a temperate deciduous forest because of all the nature their is, all you have to do is step outside and you see all these animals plants etc. The First thing I would change In my house is changing my light bulbs to LED, I say this because the light bulb uses the least electricity as possible and it gives off the brightest light possible. In addition, I would also get solar panels to support my house with electricity or just build a house beside a lake that has a dame because I can get electricity from it.
In side and around my house ill grow plants , I say this because if I put some plants inside my house they would give me a natural air filters, and some plants are particularly effective absorbers of harmful pollutants emitted from carpets, furniture, and electronic equipment. Some of the plants I would plant are... firstly I would plant a lot of deciduous trees because they give out a lot of good oxygen and shelter, also i would plant the following plants: common primrose, american beech, and spanish blue bell. I chose these plants because these can be found in the temperature deciduous forest, they give out good oxygen, They give me shade in the summer so it makes me save money and lastly I would plant plants because they look nice, and have a nice sent full smell.

Three toxic chemicals that can be found in/ or around my house is bleach, air fresheners, and Ammonia. Bleach is a chemical to wash things or whiten, Air freshener is used to make the air smell nice and Ammonia is a chemical compound that has one nitrogen atom and three hydrogen atoms tightly bonded, and the symbol for the chemical is NH3. It can take the form of a strong-smelling liquid or gas. The chemical i will chose is bleach. This chemical is really dangerous if used in the wrong away, the main point of it is to whiten close/ change colours in fabric. This dangerous chemical works by oxidizing. In order to create this chemical you would need to mix hypochlorite which something like sodium, and chlorine and oxygen. (In the pictures bellow it will show you what bleach looks like and bohr Rutherford diagram for each separate chemical to make bleach)
