These can grow up to 6 and 1/2 feet tall and weigh up to a ton. In order to sustain themselves, they must eat 30-50 pounds of vegetation each day. Another famous plains animal is the Prairie Dog. These are essential animals as other animals also depend on them. Burrowing Owls use their empty burrows as shelter, and predators such as hawks, ferrets, and foxes that feasted on these animals will move away if they cannot find food. White Tailed Deer Eastern Cottontail The tall grass prairies were formed around 8,000 years ago. Over 100 different plant species can be found in just 5 acres of land in a prairie. One of them is the national flower, the Bluebonnet. Roots can grow up to 12 feet deep in prairies, and every year some die. This gives the land more organic matter making it rich and fertile. Prairie fires ironically also helped prairies be maintained. These prevented the prairies from becoming full fledged forests. The damage from the fires also aren't very catastrophic as the fire cannot reach the stem of the grass where it grows from. The Brazos River provided a solid foundation for the coastal plains by bringing sediments into a shallow ocean. After the ocean receded, a great grass prairie grew into its place. Within the park, visitors have an opportunity to explore small communities of native grasses that only hint of days gone by. Around the mid-1800's much of Texas was covered with "tall grass" 8-10 feet tall! Unfortunately, today less than 2% of the native prairie exists undisturbed. Examples of animals that almost went extinct because of the European settlement were the bison, who ranged in 60 million, and then drastically went down to less than 600, and the Prairie Chicken, which went almost extinct but now has bounced back to around a population of 400,000 in the entire country.

Transcript: Overcoming StageFright There are 4 main ideas Step's to follow Before and During a presentation Eat Healthy! Avoid Heavy Meals, Especially Spicy food or Alcohol! Use Note Cards! They're easy and yep, they're just for you! Builds Confidence Note cards make you feel better prepared Breathe! Rapid or shallow breathing is characteristic of nervous energy. Control Slow and measured breathing is characteristic of control. That’s the characteristic you want. Prepared, ready and in control. If you can, Stand! This makes you're breathing easier and standing straight is a symbol of control and steadiness. Manage your Gestures Make your gestures smooth and well timed and if possible make natural, spontaneous gesturing a habit. Speak with a tone of voice Don't use the same tone for every sentence, be spontaneous. Use low tones and high tones of voice depending on the importance of the content! Last but not least... PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT! :D THANK YOU :) By: Cesar Encalada
Transcript: thermal energy and heat How is heat transferred. key questions Heat is transferred from warmer objects to cooler objects by 3 methods. The 3 methods are conduction, convection, and radiation. what determines the temperature of an object temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of an objects particles. what is thermal energy thermal energy is the total energy of all an objects particles. vocabulary vocabulary Celsius scale: A heat measurement form where the freezing point is at 0 degrees and the boiling point is at 100 degrees Fahrenheit: a heat measurement form that most countries don't use. Kelvin scale: a heat measurement form where absolute zero is 0 degrees. Temperature: A measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object. Absolute zero: the lowest temperature possible Heat: The transfer of thermal energy from a warmer object to a cooler object. Hurricanes are formed when very warm moist air rises quickly. this creates an area of lower air pressure below. As the air rises, water vapor in the air condenses, and releases a huge amount of thermal energy, which causes swirling winds which continue to feed the storm. hurricanes hurricanes heat forms heat forms Convection: A heat transfer that occurs only in fluids such as water and air. Radiation: The transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves. Conduction: The transfer of heat between one particle of matter to another within the same object or between two objects. This is the difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit pictures That's what happens when particles heat up Heat transfers from warm to cool objects 1: Thermal energy is measured in joules 2: Thermal energy is difficult to transfer into other forms of energy 3: Objects cannot contain heat, they can only contain thermal energy 4: To transform thermal energy to other forms of energy, a machine is needed 5: the amount of thermal energy is not dependent on the amount of work extra facts extra facts video link Turtlediary. “Science for Kids: Heat Energy Video.” YouTube, YouTube, 21 July 2015, www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGKg3TSO4v8.

Transcript: How will I use scientific notation in real life? What are exponents? In this presentation we will explain how important exponents are in the real world. Scientific Notation is a way to write numbers that are to big or to small to be conveniently written in a decimal form. Scientific Notation Ok, that's great when will I need to use exponents? Scientific Notation Exponents We can give you some examples of the importance of exponents in your life. Examples would be tracking your debt as it increases or decreases. Exponents are also helpful if you need to track surveys, examples of the surveys are population, opinion, and unemployment surveys Scientific notation is a helpful way to compare results from an experiment. Scientist and CDC use this method. You might be wondering what exponents are. (Even though we have been going over it for ever and ever. I mean come on people!) Exponents are the number of how many times to use said number in multiplication. How are exponents useful in our day to day life? References The references we used were, Google, Wiki, Toronto edu, passy's world of math.
