Sorting Organisms and

 As you can see i have labeled the cell and the parts of it that connect to DNA in order from largest to smallest.
This is a picture of my labeled animals that are also ordered in smallest to largest.

How Chromosomes DNA and Genes connected?

How are DNA Chromosomes and Genes connected?

Your body is made of around hundreds of thousands of cells. Cells are like little factories in our bodies. Inside the nucleus is the DNA that makes us who we are.
DNA is in the chromosomes, the chromosomes are in the nucleus.
Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, each chromosome contains different information about the genes.
Each ladder of DNA are made of four protein bases A,G,C,T, all humans have these bases but every human has their own unique pattern or code of bases.
Nucleotide Bases which include these 4 proteins (A,G,C,T) form one ladder of DNA, they are always in pairs, T fits with A and C fits with G.
When a sequence of three pairs of protein come together they make a codon which is like a word, 3 our thousands of words create a chapter which is a gene, you can look at the chromosome like a book because a group of genes creates a chromosome. All our chromosomes together are like a book series.

So in summary Chromosomes are made up of smaller units called genes, genes are made of codons, codons are made of nucleotide bases.

Task Description: For this task my class sat down at the tables and took notes on DNA, Genes, and Chromosomes. It was also to prepare us for highschool. These are my notes.

Labeling the Parts of a Cell

Walt: Label the different parts of the cell through an animation.

Task Description: This movie was all about teaching you the different parts of the cell and what they do. When I started I made a centre stack on hyperstudio, This stack would be the one that I put all my other movies into. Then I made a stack for each organelle and recorded that stack to make a movie. Once I had finished making the movies on the little stack I recorded that one centre stacks with all of the movies inside of it. Once I had finally finished the movie I posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, Labels and a Title.

Myths and Legends

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the presentation put it into my reading folder on google drive so that my teacher Mrs Stone would have easy access to it. I then read the texts and answered the questions Mrs Stone had given us. I then posted it onto my blog with Labels a title and a task description.

Hypothesizing with onion cells.

Group: Hinerangi, Jahzara, and I

Aim: see onion cells on a microscope

Hypothesis: I reckon at 100X magnification we’ll be able to see the onion cells.


cover slip
Blue dye

Method: We started with the slide. Then we pulled a thin layer of skin off of an onion with tweezers. We placed the onion skin onto the slide then put some saline onto it so that the blue stain would spread easily. Then we gently placed the cover slip onto the onion skin.

Observation: On the 10x microscope we saw the cells and they looked something like this.
On the 40x magnification we saw it a bit more zoomed in but there wasnt that much difference.

Then on the 100x magnification we could only see purple from the stain.

Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong and we saw the onion cell in 10x magnification, then we saw it in 40x but we didn’t see it on 100x magnification.

What makes a Good Person?

Are you a good person? How can you tell? There’s got to be some things that make people good. So what are they. In this essay I will label key characteristics that create a good person.

Respect. Everyone likes someone who knows to be respectful to others. Respect is something everyone, no matter what gender race or upbringing, deserves. You’re ability to recognise that makes you a good person.

Humility. Being humble is something that people need to do more these days. Humility gives us the ability to share our help without showing disregard to another person’s needs. For example: if someone is good at math and they are helping other people they will help the person without saying how simple they think it is.

Compassion. If you sympathise with other people you’re more likely to help them and you’ll find yourself helping people more. Getting into the habit of it will create a new way for you to get a good attitude about the way you are impacting other people’s lives. Making your life live to its utmost potential.

If you take these qualities and put them into your daily life. You will mature as a person and find the ability to make better decisions. It won’t be easy but you will be a good person. If we gather these qualities as a species, we can make the world a better place

Making a Point

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the presentation and put it into my Writing Folder. I then gave advice to whoever was writing the paragraphs on the slides, as well as rewrting some paragraphs and making conclusions that connect to the wider world. I then posted it onto my blog.
