Pro's and Con's

Today for Inquiry we wrote some Pro's and Con's about living in a Lighthouse. We made a DLO about what is Pro's and Con's living in a Lighthouse. There are so many Con's than Pro's because living in a lighthouse is hard and You are always lonely if your not with your family. It is hard because there's no school, only home studies. The Fresh water is limited, because there is no source of fresh water. The pro's is also good, you can go fishing anytime you want and it is peace and quiet.

Nugget Point Lighthouse

History of M&Ms

M&M's is a popular chocolate all around the world and is sold in most countries. This week we have been looking at the history of M&M's with Mr Johnson (substitute teach - aka principal). We have discovered a lot of information such as; Every single M&M are sold to more than 4 million people are manufactured in the United States. It is said that the owner off M&M's who's name is Mars got the idea from soldiers who were eating a lenti-shaped chocolate during the Spanish civil war. Researching about M&M's was also part of math task since we talked about the ratio for the colors of the m&m's that is found in a packet. People had different results but the numbers that were common were 52, 53, 54, 55, and 56. We were all surprised because we though that every m&m packet had the same amount of m&m's and and there were equal amount of colors. This helped me learn something new I didn't know about.
