RPC Science 6 Lesson 35


First of all today I learned that the national tree of Ontario (my province I live in) is the Eastern White Pine. And I already new this but Ontario’s provincial follower is the Trillium.

Then I also learned that if you trap a mouse in a bottle and close the lid but with live plants in there and have a good sun bean going towards the plants the mouse will live!

Then I learned that apparently celery is a fruit!?!?!

And that is it for today!

RPC Science 6 Lesson 30

Howdy! Here’s what I learned about today.

So first of all I learned about fossils, I learned how there formed, and how long it takes which is a few 10 thousand years. A fossil is first formed when a animal gets caught in a flood then get trapped in to sediment rocks and awaits to be found in a few ten thousand years.

I then learned about dinosaurs and some little things like for example I thought all dinosaurs are huge but according to Mr. Dignam the average dinosaur is the size of a lamb.

I then learned about the sediment layers at the grand canyon and how six of them almost go completely across the US.

The end!

RPC Science 6 Lesson 25

Heidi ho! Here is what I learned today.

So to start of with I learned more about volcanoes like MT ST Hellen which had one of the biggest explosions of all time in north America.

I also learned about super volcanoes which are basically the next level of volcanoes. For example there is one in Italy.

I then learned about ice climbing and anyways I learned three different ways to rescue someone that falls in a crevasse but I don’t think ill ever need to do something like that but you never know.

And that is the end for this lesson!

RPC Science 6 Lesson 20

Hello! Here is what I learned in science today.

So first of all I learned more about topographic maps like how to design one and laser print one.

I also learned a bit about the center of the earth and how it works also why there are all of these strange things inside of it like mammoth mushrooms, underground oceans and salt beds.

Somethin Ordinary: 2009

I also learned about how the earth moves so that’s why over the course of year the land separated to create continents. I also learned how volcanoes eruption cycles work.

And that is the end of this lesson!

RPC Science 6 Lesson 15

Howdy! It’s been a while since ive posted but since then we got a new four-wheeler, put a grill fender on the M110X and got two little baby goats! The four-wheeler is a 2021 Polaris Sportsman 450.

Anyways, for this time Mr. Dignam wants me to do a rock report so first of all I found it in our driveway. and it is the metamorphic version of granite called Gneiss (nice). So a metamorphic rock is formed when being in major heat close to lava, or being in high pressure which is what I think my case is. My rock is black with some shiny dots and some gray. is is layered in a ribbon like pattern. My driveway is located somewhere in west Nippising Ontario.

Since my report is to short ill do a second rock and maybe a third one.

So my second rock is Igneous and was found in the driveway again it is Pumice rock which is completely gray and has little gas bubbles. A Igneous rock is a rock that is formed after lava solidifies. there are no volcanos in Ontario so I don’t know how in the world this rock got here but oh well.

My third one here is Limestone if you go to Manitouland island Limestone is all over the place! This one is a Sediment rock so after being really packed down and Igneous rock turns into a Sediment rock. It is grey with some brownish yellow on it also.

here is a rocks lifecycle chain (rocks are not living beings) So first they are lava then as they solidify they become an Igneous rock then get compacted down into the soil and then get really hot to become a Metamorphic rock then gets melted back to lava and the chain restarts all over a again or the sediment rock get in high pressure rock and becomes a metamorphic rock and lives on.

The end!

RPC Public Speaking 9 Lesson 30

Howdy! Here is what I learned in public speaking!

I learned that by looking at the audience your speech will be more appealing like I was doing a little on lesson 25.

I also learned that my background is very important so that’s why I used my tractor collection shelf as my background.

I also learned that I should not wear my barn clothes for my speeches. And I learned that when I was moving my arms around when I was talking that’s supposed to make the speech more interesting. Here is a funny story: Once I was talking to my grandpa and I had a bowl of trail mix and I kind of forgot I was holding the bowl but anyways I pointed my arm towards my tractor and all of my trail mix went flying out!

And that is the end for today!

RPC Grade 6 Science Lesson 5!

Hello! Today is my first lesson on grade six science and just happens to be about minerals and I just so happen to have a mineral collection, anyways here’s what I learned!

So first of all I learned that you can measure weight of a mineral by density. So for example if I have a rubber ball and a ball of Iron that are the same size since the Iron is more dense it weights more. I then learned that diamonds form differently according to temperature. In colder areas Diamonds tend to grow like a squares and in warmer areas it grows as the shape we now called diamond. I then learned that granite is actually multiple minerals like mica. Next I discovered that there is a strength class for minerals and iron is a 6.5 which is fairly strong.

That’s it for today!

RPC Public Speaking Lesson 25

Heidi Ho good viewers! To end my streak of not doing public speaking for almost a year here is my video:

The video is about New tractors versus old ones but don’t ignore it right away because there are some politics in it and global warming stuff for does of you who aren’t in to tractors.

RPC Science 5 Lesson 190!

Know I am finally done! Anyways here’s what I learned:

So first of all I learned that you should always double check your recording before you start making your movie lol.

Then I learned that some things might look better at the time your recording it but once you look at it in editing you don’t like it and that’s why you always do two or three clips and not just one.

I’d like to have an intro to my YouTube video’s someday so that’s my next project!

Anyways here the lil movie:

That’s it hope you enjoyed!

RPC Science 5 Lesson 185

Howdy! Know here is the before last lesson of grade 5 science!

So first of all I need to start recording my short film, then edit it, I all ready have half of it done I just need to shoot one or two more clips edit them then I will post the video!

Although I wont be interviewing anyone in my video, I learned that it’s good to get the interview background on an angle to make it look more appealing.

I also learned that the closer you move your camera to a character the more they feel like part of the movie.

I then learned for filming in the dark it’s good to have a small light but not to much just enough to see what’s happening.

The END!
