200 Girls Abducted By Boko Hareem

My thoughts on the Abduction is incredibly sad. I think that the government should work harder to find these girls and return them to their family. The only thing the family has been given is a #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS poster and it has not motivated anyone to do anything. 50 have escaped from the boko hareem camp and are still searching for them.

Facts About Sound

We are able to hear different sound because as the sound enters our ear, the ear also vibrates.

Whales sing so loud that the song can travel 800 km.


This is me and my groups first go at explaining sound
Like many terms in science, Sound is formed from a vibration and from mechanical waves. in everyday use, sound refers to what the ear can hear. Sound can be pleasant unpleasant hard or soft high or low. The scientific meaning of sound is based on an understanding interaction between matter and energy, what the brain hears of sound or interprets gets its start from the energy of moving molecules of air.

when a guitar string  vibrates energy comes from vibrations. these oscillating sound waves can move through substances like water dirt or solid rock.

Energy comes from vibration like a guitar strings.
