Science Light unit

Hi, it’s Abby kitty and we finished our first science unit……. LIGHT!!!!!!!!! In this blog, I will be talking about luminous vs nonluminous natural vs artificial how light moves what is a reflection what makes a good reflector what is opaque, translucent, and transparent and what is refraction.

LUMINOUS VS NONLUMINOUS

Luminous means that an object can emit its own light here are a few examples the sun, stars, and lamps. Nonluminous means that an object can’t emit its own light. Many things in the world are nonluminous. I will give you a few examples of nonluminous things.  Tables, books end water bottles.

NATURAL VS ARTIFICIAL

Anything that is natural is not man-made. Man-made means that it was not made by humans and does not need them to exist. Here are some things that are not man-made.  Sun the moon and stars. Everything that is man-made is artificial meaning that it’s made by people and needs people to exist. Here are a few examples, lamps, nightlights, flashlights, and led lights.

 

               HOW LIGHT MOVES

Light moves in straight lines. If the object has a diffuse surface the outgoing rays will go all over the place and when that happens you can’t see the image as well as a flat surface. So that is why a good fisherman would not though his Seever when he sees a fish. Otherwise, he would not see the fish after the Seever hits the water.  What happens if an object is blocking the path of light? Well, it depends if it is transparent, translucent, or opaque. If it’s transparent it will continue if translucent only some will continue and when opaque none goes through.

WHAT IS REFLECTION

Reflection. Reflection happens when an object is put in front of a mirror and the object looks like the object is in the mirror. This happens because the mirror has a flat shiny surface, and the object is clear, but when you put an object in front of a diffuse surface like crumpled aluminum foil the photo isn’t clear.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD REFLECTOR

Some objects make good reflectors while some don’t. One good reflector is flat aluminum foil aside from a mirror. The white paper also reflects well. Any flat shiny specular surface will work, and any rough diffuse surface won’t work very well. Still, water also reflects well, and when a duck jumps in it goes blurry.

WHAT IS TRANSPARENT, TRANSLUCENT, AND OPAQUE

Transparent is when you can see all the way through the object. I will give you a few examples. Eyeglasses lenses, water glass, windows, plastic water bottles, plastic wrap, and plastic jars. Translucent is when you only see through a bit of a translucent object. I will give you a few examples of translucent objects. Tissue paper, toilet paper, and dirty glass. Opaque. Opaque is when you can’t see through an opaque object. I will give you a few examples of opaque objects. Notebook, Kleenex, blanket, erasers, and paper.  Opaque crystal.

WHAT IS REFRACTION

Refraction is when light bends due to media. An experiment called the broken pencil is a fun experiment in my opinion because if you fill a glass with water and put a pencil in it looks like the pencil is broken due to the media.

Thank you for reading my first science blog post!

My first Recount

   Trip to the azores      – Draft one  

 

Hi, this personal recount is about when I went to the Azores dunning spring break and school

 

The first thing we did was go to the Montreal airport on April 15.  The last time I went was when I was six. It was about 6:00pm when we left. It was windy on the drive to the airport. I listened to music on the drive. After two hours we arrived at the airport. I Was so excited. It was 8pm. We checked in and waited. After a few Minutes we boarded the plane. The flight was at 10:00. We found our seats and put our suitcases in the carry over. We waited for the plane to take off. I watched a movie on the screen and then I fell asleep. After I woke up, I ate dinner. After five and a half hours we were in Lisbon the capital of Portugal. It was 8:30 in Lisbon. Lisbon is 5 hours exactly ahead of Ottawa. We walk around till lunch then we eat lunch at a food court in a mall. After walking around, we got on a plane to go to the island Sao Miguel Açores and it took two and a half hours to arrive at Ponta delgada  airport. We rented a car and drove to the rental house. We unpacked and went to sleep. The next day we got ready for the day and drove to the supermarket to get food. We went back to the rental and ate dinner. We watched some tv and finally went to sleep.

After two hours of driving we arrived at the airport. I Was so excited. It  was 8 pm. We checked in and waited for a few minutes because of some passport complication with my grandma’s passport. We walked to the place where we would board the  plane. After a few Minutes we boarded the plane and waited. I couldn’t wait  to arrive in Lisbon, Portugal! It was so exciting. The flight was at 10:00. We found our seats and put our suitcases in the carry over. We waited for the plane to take off. I watched a movie called Ron’s go wrong on the screen and then I fell asleep. After I woke up I ate dinner.

After five and a half hours we were in Lisbon The capital of Portugal. It was 8:30 in Lisbon .Lisbon is 5 hours exactly ahead of Ottawa. We walked around Till lunch then we ate lunch at a food court in a mall. After walking around we got on a plane to go to the island Sao Miguel Açores and it took two and a half hours to arrive at Ponta Delgado  airport. We rented a car and drove to the rental house.We unpacked and went to sleep. 

The next day we  got ready for the day and drove to the supermarket to get food. We went back to the rental and ate dinner. We watched some TV about airplane crashes and disasters and finally went to sleep. 

That’s it for my recount. Bye for now

 

                                 

My cat Abby 2

Hi. I have a cat named Abby. She is a domestic long hair gray and white. In other words you can use DLH for short. We got her from a cat rescue in Smiths falls. The cat rescue is called Furry tails cat rescue. Abby is playful, gentle and silly. She is turning two in 2022. Abby has siblings in Brockville. There’s a Furry tails in Brockville too.  Here is a list of things that Abby likes to do.

This is just a few of them. Abby likes to do a ton of things. She loses her toys sometimes. The toys she loses are her ball toys. Abby has a ton of ball toys that have bells inside them. Abby loves to play with people she knows. She also likes to play with milk rings . When we first got her she didn’t eat for a week. Then we took her to the vet and said that she had a stomach bug. We had to give her medication but she was very feisty. Abby is a mom because she had kittens before we got her. Abby is very itty because she jumps on chairs,beds and my bedroom height measure. I love having her because of how silly she is. I have always wanted a cat ever since I knew what a cat was

                           Do cats make good pets?

Well that is a hard question to answer.Some cats make good pets. Well with many breeds of cats it is hard to say because cats have different personalities. So it is a difficult question to answer.Some cats make good pets and some don’t make good pets.

                              What do cats need?

Cats like all animals need food to survive .Here is a list of things cats need to live and have fun.

  1. Food
  2. Water
  3. A place to sleep

                      My cat Abby

I have a pet cat and her name is Abby. We got her in November 2021.She was a year old when we got her. She  is very playful and mischievous sometimes. She will eat anything she wants to eat. She meows and purrs a lot.

She licks herself sometimes as you can see she’s licking herself while I was taking pictures,but decided to put one on. As you know they are outdoor cats and indoor cats.My cat is an indoor cat because the place where we adopted her furry tails cat rescue told me and my parents to keep her an indoor cat and that is a good idea because there is a cat that looks like her named Paisley.So we don’t want to let her outside.She loves to play with me.Some mornings she jumps up and puts her paws on me and goes like this meow meow.She walks behind me wherever I go.She  follows me into the bathroom,my room when I’m changing,on the chair in the living room and I’m still sitting  on the chair,and she jumps on the table when I’m eating.

 

                                How to take care of a cat

How to take care of a cat or cats is like taking care of a dog sort of because they both need food and water. Taking care of a cat is fun and a lot of work because you need to clean litter box(s). Cats can take 1-2 weeks to get used to your house. They also will not eat for the first week. It happened to my cat Abby when she joined my family. Cats can have different bonds with different family mem bers. I know that because my cat had different bonds with my parents and grandma.
