Science Week 5th & 6th Classes

Science Week

For the week of science we had scientist from the A.I.T come and teach us all about DNA. We also went to the A.I.T to learn all about forces with former circus man James Soper. With the Cell Explorers we extracted DNA from a banana!!Dr. Mia Frost told us all about the double helix found inside the brain or the nucleus of the cell. The human body has 1 trillion cells. James Soper sure knows how to make you laugh or clap, he was juggling, using a unicycle and explaining how the forces of gravity and magnetism works. Our teacher Ms. Leslie even got called up to help. Our science week was superb.

We did two things for science week.

The first thing was the cell explorers. We learned about cells and DNA .The second thing was the AIT. We learned about gravity and magnetism .The guy who was teaching us in the AIT was in the circus so everything was about the circus and science .The cell explorers showed us banana DNA and what cells do and are .We got to bring banana DNA home.



Science Week started last Monday. But because we love Science Week so much at Kilcleagh we started early, so the week before Dr. Miya Frost and her team came to show us how to extract the D.N.A from a banana.

Before we knew it Science Week was around the corner, and we were getting on the bus to go to the A.I.T .There we learned all about forces such as gravity and magnetism.


Science Week by Eli

This week we had Science Week. Well, it was more like a couple of weeks actually. We learned about DNA and Forces.

Gravity and Magnetism

There are two types of Forces. Gravity and Magnetism. Magnetism is pushing and pulling if south meets north, they pull together, but if north meets north and south meets south, they push off each other.

Gravity is also like pushing and pulling. If you jump, you’re pushing off the ground, but Gravity will pull you back down.


Now I’m going to talk about DNA. DNA stands for Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid. DNA determines how you look. 98% of your DNA is the same of a chimpanzee. We have 100,000,000,000,000 cells in our body. Plants and animals have different cells. Every living thing has cells. Each cell contains 9ft of DNA.

Science Week was fun and I learned lots. I hoped you reading and learning from this. Bye!
