Gold is used as a standard against which wealth is measured. Pure gold is very rare, like gems, and can be very heavy.

Gold is very hard to find because people found most of it in 1849.

The Earth is always moving. We are in Los Angeles but in the future your children will be right next to San Francisco.

This is what is happening to the whole world. Scientists don’t know how it started, but it’s incredible.

The reason the earth is recycling its material is in a billion years the earth will be totally different because the rocks will become weaker and crumble.

That’s what I found interesting in science.

I like science because in second grade I learned about different types of fire.

If you put fire in a glass container and you cover it, it will disappear. The fire we make needs oxygen, and the fire from the sun doesn’t.

A food chain is where something small eats small stuff and something big eats the small thing, and it goes over and over again.

And a food web consists of the many overlapping food chains in an ecosystem.

The most interesting thing I’ve learned in science is the Siberian husky.

The Siberian husky is the closest breed to the wolf.

The husky is bred to race and pull sleds for miles, and they can change their stamina.

Their eyes can be blue, green, brown or both.

Did you also know that Balto was a wolf-husky who saved Nome’s children from death?

Balto was a real hero.
