Some people may think that there is nothing to be found in Antarctica, but there really are things that have been discovered. There were fossils discovered in Antarctica and they were fossils of temperate climate plant fossils. Since Antarctica is pretty much deserted, how did those fossils end up there? Well, I don't have a correct answer, but I assume that fossils were found in Antarctica because Earth's plates. 
          When Earth was forming, all the plates were together and they were a one huge plate. But after many years of forming, separate plates started forming. I think that the fossils that were found in Antarctica were once somewhere sunny or somewhere with plants, but then it got moved away from the environment and separated into its own plate. 
 
 
Quizlet is a website used to create online vocabulary flash cards. The cool thing about it is that we could study them online. There are different games that involve matching and memorizing the definitions of the words. Quizlet is very helpful for me. It helps me remember the words better, and it makes studying words more interesting rather than studying it on a piece of paper. There was this one time where I didn't remember much of the science vocabulary. The next day was the test, and it had all these vocabulary words. I turned to Quizlet, and I studied non-stop. I reviewed the flashcards, and I played the games. When I took the test the next day, I felt confident about the vocabulary because I knew that I remembered all of it very well. 
          I think this way of studying is very helpful. It's not that difficult to create either. It involves technology and most kids today have all kinds of technology devices. The games are also helpful too because they test you to see if you could match it with its definition. I wouldn't mind using this studying technique again in 8th grade. Quizlet is an easy and cool way to study almost anything (mostly vocabulary words). 
 
 
Who was Charles Darwin? Charles Darwin developed the theory of natural selection and evolution. He did this because he was on a voyage, traveling around the world on the Beagle. When he traveled around the world, he observed many different animals and came up with different theories about them and how they change over time. His ideas weren't believe when people first heard about it. While Charles was still trying to prove his theories to people, other people came up with theories and ideas too. 
               One of them was Charles Lyells. He proved to people that Earth was older than most people thought it was. This idea changed Darwin's ideas about evolution and natural selection. If Earth was older than that must mean animals have evolved from other animals and adapted to their environment. This is what made Darwin create the idea of natural selection. Natural selection means that when certain animals survive better than others because they are well adapted to the environment. Another thing that helped was the observation of peppered moths. He saw that dark moths had a better chance to survive than light moths. Since most of the forests in England were dark, the da
