Unit 4) Bill Nye The Science Guy Energy Post

In the video, Bill Nye The Science Guy Energy, I learned about many types of energy and how to convert energy and how energy is used in certain ways. In this post, I will be sharing some things I learned from the video and some topics the video was talking about.


The topics that the video told me about were types of energy, how energy is used, why it is important, and how we get our energy.

I learned that:

  1. All energy can be converted to another energy.
  2. Solar power is unlimited while oil, coal, uranium and other ores are finite.
  3. Most energy comes from the sun.
  4. The world relies on energy.
  5. Water can be used as an energy source as well as steam. (Which power turbines).
  6. The sun doesn’t only give solar energy/power, it also gives plasma energy.
  7. The higher an object is, the more potential energy it stores.
  8. The amount of kinetic energy can never be more than the amount of potential energy.
  9. Somehow, clouds will stop moving if the energy in the world disappears.
  10. Most energy is infinite. (Solar, thermal, plasma, wind)
  11. (IMPORTANT). Water energy is actually FINITE because water can run out.   

This is what I learned from the Bill Nye The Science Guy Video about energy. I hope you learned a lot!

What I Have Learned In Unit 4 Of UOI

So far, in this unit, I have learned quite a lot of things. So, in this post, I will share some interesting facts I have learned from the best learning app ever, BrainPOP! I really enjoy the videos because they are funny and teach me a lot. Anyways, let’s get started with the facts!

First, I learned that an ore called Uranium is used as a fuel for nuclear energy.

Secondly, I learned that in most nuclear plants, they use heat to power turbines.

Third of all, I learned that nuclear energy is not a good type of energy since it produces nuclear waste which is highly radioactive.

Fourth of all, I learned that scientists are working on perefecting a method of nuclear fusion.

Last but not least, I learned that humans can hear sounds from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second.

These were 5 facts about energy that I have learned from BrainPOP. I hope you learned a lot from this post and recommend you try BrainPOP the best mobile experience for learning.

I also have some questions and things to say about how it related to energy. So here they are:

  1. Why do we need energy to survive?
  2. How many types of energy are there?
  3. How is there energy in something when you lift it?
  4. Why did we make nuclear energy if it is a bad type of energy which can kill people?
  5. What is the most important type of energy in the world?

This video relates to energy because it teaches me many facts about energy and helps me understand more about it.

AD Unit Reflection (Unit 3)

In this unit, I have really enjoyed all our fun activities. We made our own ads for existing products. We also made a research project about ads and logos and everything we have learned throughout the unit. We shared most of the work we did in the class. We also answered a sheet which asked us to guess the name of a company or place using it’s logo. We did this activity in groups and had a great time. We also listened to radio ads and made hear think wonders for them. We also made see think wonders for magazine ads. The main goal of this unit was to learn about ads and how companies make them, how logos are thought of, and how they make their jingles and slogans. Overall, I enjoyed every part of the unit. Though we didn’t make our own products, I disliked nothing.  I am really looking forward to our new unit about energy. It sounds as if it will be fun and will include lots of new facts and statements. I really love unit of inquiry!

Slogans (Unit 3)

Slogans are catchphrases that hook the listener or reader in and tempts them to buy the products. So today I have researched about some of the best and most attractive slogans, I have them in order from the best in my opinion to the worst in my opinion. Here they are:

1. Skittles: Taste the rainbow.

2. Frosties: It’s grrreat!

3. Wheaties: The breakfast for champions.

4. Lays: Betcha can’t just eat one!

5. Nike: Just do it.

6. M and M’s: Melts in your mouth, not your hand.

7. I can’t believe it’s not butter!: I can’t believe it’s not butter.

8. De Beers: a diamond is forever.

9. Maybelline: Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline.

10. Wendy’s: Where’s the beef? [Why it’s the worst: because the beef is right there on the bun!]

During my research I also found another  bad slogan from google. It was don’t be evil. I think this isn’t a good slogan since it has no good meaning or connection to a search site. I think a good slogan would need a connection to the type of store, make sense, have an avatar speaking and should have a video alongside with it. I really hope I get to make my own slogan in class and use tips from real slogans. I think my classmates would also enjoy this activity since it requires creativity and they really like decorating. I  really enjoyed researching these slogans and worked really hard, so I hope you liked it!

UOI 1 Reflection

In my first unit of inquiry, [U.O.I], I learned about systems. I learned that systems keep everything organized and in shape. Systems also give people orders and sometimes can even be laws. We also did a project about systems where we had to have a community with at least 3 systems. It was group work. Me and my group, which was Yoyo, Ahfaz, and me, made a great slide about our community. Which I will leave a link to and the end of this blog post along with my reflection on this unit. I had to reflect about the community that my group made up. We named our community DX Generation, which turned out to be a real name for wrestling duo! I really enjoyed our unit!







Amazing slide!

Check out this google slides me and my classmate Youssef Mahmoud made about our U.O.I lesson, natural processes shape the land. Warning! It is about 47 pages! It took us three days to finish.
