First place
The most interesting thing that I have learned in science was about space. I learned that Saturn’s rings are made of rocks and gas. I also learned that Mercury has a shorter year than any other planet and that Pluto is a dwarf planet. Then, I learned that at night our side of the planet is facing away from the sun. I also learned that Earth rotates on its axis. I don’t think I will learn anything more interesting than space.

Second place
I learned about rocks and minerals. There are many kinds of rocks and minerals. Some make red, clear, orange and white stripes. The crystal is my favorite because you can use them for earrings and if you hang them by your window in the morning, your room is a rainbow. Diamonds are the hardest minerals. Some diamonds are used for drills and tips of rocket ships. You all might think, “This can’t be true. Diamonds are used in my mom’s jewelry,” but no. Now you know a couple of facts about rocks and minerals.
P.S. Cool newspaper articles, “Kids Zone.”

Third Place
What I learned most about is the human body. Here are some things I learned about how to digest your food. It is with villi. Villi sucks the nutrients out of your food then digests it.

Next is the kind of tissues, like the muscle, nerve and the heart.

Finally the systems like the digestive, nervous and the muscle system.

Something else I forgot to say is the capillaries and avioli. The capillaries are tiny blood vessels and the avioli are tiny air sacks in the lungs.

The most interesting thing I have learned in science is when a balloon exerts pressure. As it gets higher and higher in the atmosphere it exerts pressure. When my class did an experiment on air pressure, we hung two balloons on a ruler. Next, we got a our needle and popped it, but before that we had to make sure to see what happened when we popped one of the balloons. What happened was that the balloon popped and the other one lost its balance. Once a balloon gets higher, it already has pressure from when you fill it up. Once the balloon goes up it gets more air because air is everywhere. Then it explodes from all of the air it received.

I think that the most interesting thing that I’ve learned about science is body systems. Did you know that the trachea and bronchi help you blow air into balloons and other stuff, and it is located where your throat is?

Also do you know that when you eat something: First, it goes into your mouth; second, you crunch it with your teeth; third, it goes to saliva; fourth, down the esophagus; fifth, to the stomach; sixth, to the villi, seventh to the small intestine and eighth to the large intestine? These are located through your whole human body, and that is why I like the body systems! One more thing, capillaries are what bleed when you get a cut. Now you know!

My most interesting science lesson is the one about the atmosphere because there are so many layers, like the stratosphere, troposphere, mesosphere and the thermosphere. The one with the most ozone is the stratosphere because it is the second lowest of the layers of the atmosphere. The lowest is the troposphere. The third is the mesosphere. The highest is the thermosphere. It also is a thin blanket of air that blocks 50 percent of the sun from frying us. That’s my story.

My favorite things about science is the atmosphere. It’s my favorite because I never knew that there was a stratosphere, troposphere, mesosphere or a thermosphere, so that was really exciting for me to know.

After I found out, I went home and asked all my friends if they knew about it and they were like “I don’t believe you.” I said “yes” and got out my science book and showed them. They said “Oh, now I believe you.”

Also I never knew that air pressure increases as you go higher in the atmosphere. The higher you get in the atmosphere, the farther apart air particles are.

So let me talk a little bit about the troposphere and the stratosphere. The troposphere is where we live and where most of the weather happens. The stratosphere is where most airplanes fly to avoid the weather. Thanks for reading about my favorite thing in science. Hope you enjoyed it.

This year in fifth grade I’ve learned science, but the most interesting thing I’ve learned yet is the atmosphere.

The reason I picked this topic is because I never knew there were four parts of the atmosphere. The first layer of the atmosphere is the thermosphere.

The thermosphere has hot air particles in the upper atmosphere, because the thermosphere is the highest layer in the atmosphere the air particles are much more spread out which means the thermosphere has the least amount of air.

The second layer is the mesosphere. It has more air particles, which means this layer has more weight. So the mesosphere has more air and more air particles.

The next layer is the stratosphere. It has more air particles and more air but not as much as our layer the troposphere which has the right amount of air for us to breathe, and that’s the most interesting thing I have learned in science. Thanks for listening.

I love science. My favorite part I learned was the digestive system. I loved everything about the system. I like how saliva and your tongue break down food for your gut to digest easier. I liked how it goes to your small intestine to your large intestine and then the toilet.

The most interesting thing about science is about the atmosphere. The atmosphere has four layers, which are the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere and the thermosphere. The air airplanes fly in is the stratosphere. The mesosphere is the coldest area in the atmosphere. The thermosphere is the hottest part of the atmosphere.

The most interesting thing I learned in science is how to make a volcano. To make it, you form sand to look like a mountain then make a hole on the top. Then you put in vinegar and water into the hole. Next you wait for it to erupt and that’s where the fun happens.

The most interesting thing I learned in science is that when the sun and the moon cross together it’s called an eclipse.
Also I learned all the phases of the moon and that is pretty interesting. The last one I think is the most interesting is that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

My favorite science project I did in science was when my class got earthworms and put them into a box. I like this experiment because it was both gross and fun to touch them. We did this to see how they adapt to the different climate and the different place to sleep and live. It was radical. I’m sure you would like that science project.

The most interesting thing I learned in science was how to make a soda fountain. I was in a warehouse with my teacher and friends. We had a large Diet Coke bottle and pack of Mentos. The teacher put three Mentos in the bottle. When she opened the cap 15 feet of soda exploded in the air! It was truly phenomenal! All of my friends and I cheered. That was the most interesting thing I learned in science.

Have you ever wondered why warm, golden, sunny summer days have no clouds? And why cold days are gloomy and the sky has barely any patches of blue? Well, here’s your answer!

I find this really interesting. Since cold air does not move fast, it has enough time to condense into clouds. The air on a day like this has high humidity.

But hot air moves fast. This means that it does not have time to form clouds. So the air on a day like this has low humidity.

Now you know why summer almost always has clear skies!
