In the holiday

I woke up wondering where I was then I remembered, I was at my Grandma and Grandpa's house, that was the start of the holiday at the farm (yes my Grandma and Grandpa live on a farm). I was the first up (as usual)so I played Rummyo, here are some of the rules:
you have to try and lose all your cards before the other person/people
you can not pick up and put down in the same turn.

Two days later my cousins Zakh, Ben, Mae and Jean arrived and we watched my favorite movie:Star Wars the Clone Wars we watched these episodes: Libitry on Ryloth and  Mystery of a Thousand Moons. The next day farmer Ein(one of my grandpas friends) brought Stanley(a horse) and we went on rides in this order:
Ben, Mae, Zakh, Cam, Jean then me. I really liked my holiday

passion project

My passion protect is about science. These are my links.

physics This one is about density. The materials you need are salt (you will need a lot of salt), water, bowls/glasses and eggs. Watch the video to find out the steps and the science behind it.

baking soda vs vinegar This one is a great chemical reaction. The materials you need are baking soda, a bowl/glass and vinegar. Watch the video to find out  the steps. Baking soda is also known as sodium bicarbonate  and when you add the vinegar it releases the gas called  carbon dioxide and that creates the bubbling affect.

I chose to do science as my passion project because at the start of the project I only knew a few  science experiments and I really  like science. I did intend to do more but I did not like them that much. My favorite is the baking soda experiment.This is my reflection.

What was surprising about your passion project?
Definitely the results like the size of the vinegar experiment  it was smaller than I expected

No only the part about the science. I displayed it on two videos instead of a talk.I followed about 4% of the plan    

Which learning muscles did you use the most while you were working on your passion project? How did you use each one? Noticing: I noticed my errors.
