BTN Let the electricity flow

3 facts I have are that 1.Stephen Gray divided the world into two different kinds of substances conductors and insulators. 2.300 years ago Stephen Gray created a machine that could generate static electricity. 3.Glass, ceramic objects and silk are just some of the materials that insulate electricity.

2 understandings that I have now are that 1.Insulators hold the electric charge and 2.conductors let the electricity move freely.

A question I have is that why did Gray use an orphan to lie across the swings and not a random person?

100WC #47

Big foot, Sasquatch, yeti, abominable snowman all names for a big monster that lives “unknown” to humans. Only a few people have ever come into contact with these beasts and even then they are not sure that they know they are real. My name is Bob Jeffery Jimmy Jones AKA BJJJ and I hope to be the journalist to reveal the truth in the Bigfoot mystery. An advantage I have that other reporters don’t, is that Bigfoot visited my town . . . yesterday. Tonight I decided to get on Bigfoot’s trail. Something moved in the darkness but then I lost consciousness.

100WC#46 … then suddenly it went dark…

I was playing video games on my computer, then suddenly it went darkmy computer’s screen went dark, MY COMPUTER’S SCREEN WENT DARK!!!!! Do you know what happens when my computer screen goes dark?!? Well the computer tends to delete every thing on the HARD DRIVE!!! I know this because it has happened to me, 17 times! Every single one of those times I had to restart my computer and start again!!! Uploading all the games and all the apps and redoing all the homework that was a work-in-progress. And that is why I really hate it when my computers screen goes DARK!!!

100WC #44

It was minus 7° on the ice breaker,  I was ready to go to observe seals in their natural habitat, Antarctica. All of a sudden I heard a very weird noise, kind of like a sheep baaing,  curiously I went around to the other side of the ship to see what was making the really weird noise. As I got there I realised that a few of the other crew had heard the sound as well and had come to have a look. I went to the edge of the railing and looked onto the rocks. Sitting there was a seal, laughing.

 

100WC #43 Cushion Scarlet Annoying Watered Violin

I woke up to the sound of my sister’s really annoying scarlet violin. I propped myself up on my cushion and got out of bed. I opened the window next to my bed and watered my yellow tulips and red roses hanging in the flower box off my window sill. After I had finished watering my flowers I found myself looking at the sky. I saw lots of dark grey clouds moving across the sky. I reached out of the window and felt some drops of water on my hand. I quickly shut the window and went to tell my family.

100WC #42 …but then the flash made me…

I was walking into the bank when a person carrying a briefcase pushed past me and went to the toilets. I didn’t realize it’s significance until I was getting money out of the ATM. The same man went past me and soon after he left I realized that he had left his briefcase behind. I started to follow him but then the flash made me stop and blink my eyes a few times. Then I suddenly realized that the bomb was in the briefcase and that was why the man moved so quickly to get out of the bank.

100WC #41 …when all of a sudden…

I was walking on the sidewalk minding my own business when all of a sudden a man ran past me carrying a briefcase. Behind me a woman shouted “help me, that man just stole my briefcase!” I quickly shot out my arm to grab the thief but just missed, luckily another guy who was further up the street caught the thief with his arm. So I ran to help him contain the thief until the police arrived. After the police had left the woman then thanked me and the other man and then went on her way and we went on ours.

100WC #40

I was hiding in the bushes when the ride operator got the wire cutters out of his back pocket. He cut the horse’s free. My hunch had been correct, the horses had moved when I saw them at lunch time having a break from all the children riding on them. After the ride operator cut them all loose they all whinnied to each other and ran across the field to the river that was down there. They were soon out of sight of my hiding place so I moved quickly through the bushes to pursue them further.

100WC #33

My goal is to have a cliff hanger at the end of the 100WC.

It was a dark and stormy night when I finally got home. Suddenly, I was stopped by the fabled sixth sense, I turned my body to look at the the castle on the hill next to my house. In the flash of lightening I saw that someone was standing there in the doorway of the castle looking back at me. I shook myself, turned back to the door and went inside. As soon as I walked inside I realised that all the pictures in the house showed the same picture – a person standing in the doorway of a castle. It was so weird that…

BTN WEEDY SEADRAGON

Three facts I have are that weedy seadragons are native to Australia and can be found in the waters mostly off the South and East coasts. Researchers researching weedy sea dragons are using a kind of facial recognition software to identify each fishes’ unique patterns! Every time researchers  identify a new weedy seadragon, they give it a very appropriate name to help keep track of it!

Two understandings I have are that weedy sea dragons are related to sea horses and often just drift about in the water, blending in with the kelp around them. Right now weedy sea dragons are classified as ‘near threatened’ but scientists that are researching the topic think that they might have to be re-classified as ‘endangered’. Rising sea temperatures is the thing that is killing the kelp which leaves weedy sea dragons homeless.

A question I have is how long have weedy seadragons been around for?
