Ms. Zapata’s 4/5 Class, 5/31/13

Above: Reading a story on climate change (Session 2)

Last night was Project Open House! We worked on presentations to show our families what we learned during our project on Climate Change.

Theo, Hernan, and Matthew did a poster on How to Lower Greenhouse Emissions.


Kevin: My project was about the atmosphere. The cotton is the atmosphere.  Greenhouse gases that make up the atmosphere are like the glass in a greenhouse. They trap and hold the heat on the Earth. The other people in my group were Taliyah, Lena, and Winnie.


Philip: This presentation was about the three main greenhouse gases: nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, and methane. We also included a Q&A section. There were three questions we made for each gas: what can we do to lower that gas. For example, for methane, Meatless Mondays; for carbon dioxide, ride bikes. The other people in my group were David, Timyas, Jaden, and Neiman.


This poster was about the cycle of plants and people exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide.


This presentation was about the Making of Oxygen. Participants looked at leaves underneath a microscope to examine the leaf stomata.



Each person in our class had a word to describe our school year: Fine, Amazing, Amazing, Amazing, Interesting, Different, Happy, Cool, Fun, Good, Awesome, Exciting, OK, Cool, Confusing, Happy. (There were a couple of Decline to State people too).

Thank you for reading our blog all year! Ms. Z’s class out.
