The experiment

For the last two days we have been doing an experiment its about fresh water and salt water.First we put fresh water in a cup and salt water in a cup.Then we put the cups in the freezer for one day.Then we figured out that salt water is naturally warmer.

Cholate Chip

This is Chocolate chip, if you zoom this photo you mite see a chip of his shell is missing, and I never noticed it till I posted the photo.I do not no what happened to his shell but we are going to put calcium tablets to keep his shell from cracking more.If we do not put the calcium tablets in the tank hes shell will brake and the snail will die. So it is extremely important to put the tablets in.
Above chocolate chip there is a green snail, its name is pinky, I no what your thinking your probably thinking its a silly name especially for a eight year old,but I did not name it my three year old sister named it.The hole reason we have pinky is because we wanted different snails.

All about my snail

This week I have noticed my snails have been moving from place to place then staying in the same place almost all day . One of the toys the snails have is a castle and there were dozens of places for them to hide in the castle.

I have learned that a snails slime can help it move and allow it to move over sharp objects without getting hurt for example if a snail crawls over a knife it will not get hurt at all.

The most fun thing I did this week is learning about mushrooms . So we took a walk through our neighborhood looking for mushrooms and we ended up finding about 4 different species of mushrooms just by walking around are neighborhood!Then we went home and made spore prints. Which is made with a black and white piece of paper taped together and when your done put the mushroom face down in the middle make sure you put a glass over it! Anyways in 1-12 hours you should see groups of spores.
