It was a cold evening in Central Park, New York. I was sitting down reading a new book I just picked up from the local library. Bundled in my jacket I was. I was reading about cell walls and organisms. As I read I pictured plants, people, and animals. Somehow they all fit together for organisms, having organisms. And I read about cell walls, explaining that they are the walls for certain cells, like plant cells. I kept on reading and after about 5 minutes, I came across a word I hadn't heard about before: nucleus. I looked around for context clues but didn't find any help. So I decided to go home. When I got home, my mom explained that a nucleus was something that contained chromosomes and associated molecules, helping with characteristics and growth.

 

Time passed and soon it was time to go to bed. I wandered upstairs and brushed my teeth. As I reached for the handle to my room, I saw something. Green! Blue! Yellow! Red! I saw slime and it was disgusting. I examined it with a microscope from my bathroom and realized it was bacteria. I quickly flipped open my book to page 85 and found the photo I'd been looking at about bacteria. I grinned and went into my room. When I woke up in the morning I got ready for school and ran down to breakfast. The sweet smell of bacon and eggs and a strawberry smoothie drifted through the air. I saw my dad reading the Daily Camera with an empty plate in front of him. My dad is really strong. He looks fat, but really has a lot of tissue, working together to help make him have strong muscles. I finished breakfast with enough time to read about the ecosystem in my book before I had to leave for school. It took me 7 minutes to read because it was such a short chapter. When people say, "you learn a new thing every day", they are right. I found out that an ecosystem is formed by a group (or community) of organisms interacting. Now it was time to go to school.

 

When I got to school, my friend was so excited to tell me the population of New York. She said it was 19,541,453 and that's a lot! I stood there for a little bit figuring out what a population is and soon figured out that it was the total amount of people or things in a country, city, or area. I told my friend 'thanks' and then headed off to first period. Luckily, my first period was science, my favorite subject. We learned about the Golgi complex and organelles. We had to write a paper about either of the two new vocabulary words and I chose the Golgi complex. My paper was all about a membranous complex or different cells. My neighbor, Josh McLee, wrote a paper of the other vocabulary word. We had to read and correct each other's papers after we were finished. Josh's paper was all about a cell organ and the different functions it had. I went home proud of myself and ready to learn what an organ is; using my context clues I could probably figure it out.
