1. Which activities increased your heart rate the most?
2. Which activities increased your heart rate the least?
3. Was the order in which you ranked the activities accurate? (It's good to be wrong!) Explain.
4. What changes did you notice about your heart rate as you became more active?
5. Why do you think your heart rate changed when you were more active? What inference can you make? (Use pages 65–66 of your reference book to help you answer this question.)
1. Jumping and running. They increased it the most because I was the most active in them. And because I was doing more and it was harder to do so my heart rate was going up because it was harder activities.
2. Sitting, standing, and walking was kinda in the middle. They increased my heart beat the least because I was least active. Also since I wasn't doing a lot of things that were hard.
3. Yes it was accurate. Because it went from least to greatest. Also because I did lease harder things than did harder things.
4. I noticed that as I became more active It increased. It increased a lot from the beginning because I became more and more active.
5. I think it changed because I was doing more. It changed maybe because I was getting more tiered and more blood has to be pumped into the body because I am more active and the more active I get the more blood and oxygen I need. So it has to beat more times for me to get all the stuff I need.
Reflection: We had to see how much our heart rate went up or went down while we were doing different things. I learned that the more times my heartbeat beat it was because of the activity I was dong to get all the blood I need around my body. It was fun doing the different types of activities and listening to my heartbeat faster and slower. It was tough finding my heartbeat every time because I would put the stethoscope on the same place I had it last time but then it would feel like it was in a new place.
I woke up and right away my mom says
“Emily go right back upstairs and take a shower! Seriously I haven’t even eaten Breakfast and I took one yesterday, it is not fair!!!” My mom pauses and says
“Go take one now, we all have to take one and your hair takes the longest to dry so you get to take the first shower of the day.
Mom please, I just woke up and I am starving let me just eat something first. Please,”
I go right into the cabinets without my mom even answering yet, I get the frosted Flakes and turn around
“Go take a shower now.” My mom is now yelling at me and I just ignore her and get a bowl from the dishwasher. My mom is is now fuming and her face is bright red and maybe a little purple to.
“TAKE A SHOWER NOW!!!”
By now I am at the table with earplugs in so I can’t hear which I think was a mistake because my mom is now more mad than I have ever seen her before.
“Oh no.” I gulp hard. I take my earplugs out and say “What, sorry I didn’t hear you can you please say it again.” And I wasn’t being sarcastic to her that time.
“Emily please take a shower.
But…. But my cereal will get all mushy, and soggy, and I won’t like it when I get out so…….
Emily get up and go upstairs now.” I wish my mom wasn’t so mean to me I say quietly to myself,
“pretty please with a cherry on top I whine to her. No, Emily then if you don’t get in now then you won’t get to take a shower until later today and you will be whining and we have stuff going on today. I wish this stupid rule about taking showers was gone!!!!! Please.
Fine you have 10 minutes until you have to go take one. Ok, thanks mom.”
I eat super fast and go lay down on the couch, “ I am still really tired.” Soon after I fall asleep at first I don’t have a dream, and then I go into a really weird dream about how the whole world has changed and there are no rules or laws. By now I am on my way to school and I notice everyone honking their car horns and that the cars are driving on the wrong side of the road.
“What has happened?” I ask my mom and brother.
“I don’t have any clue answers my brother, but I like the new way of life!!”
We get to school and notice that there are no teachers in sight nor students. I see my friend Payton and ask “What happened over the weekend everyone is weird.”
Payton just walks away.
“What's the deal with Payton these days?” I mumble to myself.
Finally I get to my class and see Mr. Solarz.
He just ignores me and gets a piece of bubble gum out of his bag.
“ Hey,? Aren't we not allowed to have gum in school? Don’t care.” He walks out and Nick comes in and says
“This is going to be and awesome day!” He blows a bubble with a piece of gum.
“Hey, why is everyone so different today and no one is at school and everybody who is here has gum with them, this is going to be the worlds worst day.” Finally someone I know shows up to class and has gum.
Mr. Solarz comes in and says “Ok class time to get to work. Come get these papers and complete the 20 page packet in 30 minutes or else it is homework.” He leaves the room and everyone gets their phones out and all I hear is ding ding ding ding from all the messages going through their phones.
“ Everyone come get the papers!” I yell
“Yeah Yeah we will just take a break and chill everything will be all right!” Explains Luke.
Payton comes in with about 20 pounds of Chocolate in her hands.
“Yum yum yum mmmmm…. mmmmmmmm……. mmmmmmm CHOCOLATE IS DELICIOUS!!!!!!” Explains Payton!!
Finally the worst day of school is over now I can enjoy a nice peaceful end of my day. Oh, no I forgot about all the sheets of homework all in total I have 30 pages this will be the most terrible day ever.” It is going to take 3 days to do this kind of work 24 hours working all day long and no breaks I get right to work and it takes me 30 minutes I was surprised because I went to the bathroom and when I came back to the table I saw shreds and shreds of paper on the floor. I thought what could this mess of paper be. “Whatever” I said. I went to go sit down and picked up my pencil and looked down at the table. Then looked up “Who did this I exclaimed.
“Don’t know” my mom said
“No clue.” Matthew exclaimed. Nick didn’t answer and he had a smirk on his.
“Hey, Nick why did you do that. Don’t know I just do that kind of stuff.
Well now I am going to get an F on my grade for not coming prepared and no homework thanks a lot Nick!!!”
I think about what is going on, I tell my mom about my day and tell her all the weird stuff that has been going on. She doesn’t seem to think anything has been going wrong. “Well maybe I am just imagining all the stuff that has been going on or just daydreaming.” I could tell that this was going to be the worlds worst day! I try and
re-tape my homework back together. I knew I was going to fail at taping it back together. And I was right about that.
Finally, after attempting to tape my work back together I fail again and again.
I call my friend Nicole to come to my house and she says “ Omg lets play floor hockey!! Oh no we aren’t allowed to play it inside my house. Come on lets do it your mom isn’t home, and besides your mom can’t tell me what to do!” Nicole goes right to the basement to get to hockey sticks and looks fiercely for a soft ball but she can’t find it.
“Well I guess we can’t play it now.” I exclaim
“Yes we can!” Nicole yells. she grabs a baseball, “we can play with this” she says.
I say wait I got to go to the bathroom “Wait right here and don’t go anywhere with that baseball.” I exclaim.
“Kk.” Nicole says.
I go to the bathroom and and I come back to where I said stay here to Nicole but Nicole is no where in sight. “Oh no I have made a big mistake of leaving Nicole here with a baseball and hockey stick.” Suddenly I hear a big shattering sound. I gulp now I know where Nicole is.
“Emily…. ummmm well ummmm I kinda maybe sorta accidentally threw a ball into your window so it kinda broke and shattered all over the place. I run upstairs to where I heard Nicole's voice coming from
Oh no it was not a small shatter it was a giant shatter.
I hear the door open, “Hi, Emily my mom calls. Hi mom can you come in here now I have to tell you something really important.” My mom runs into the room “Is everything all right is anybody hurt?
No I call but the window shattered.
The what shattered??
The window you know that big thing where you can look outside and you can see through it.” Nicole explains.
“All right my mom comes in very disappointed in me, Emily do you want to explain what has happened. She is yelling at me and I almost feel like crying.
Ok. I guess.”
Finally, I am done explaining what happened and my mom is now really disappointed in me, not like she cares about what she is doing to me.
“Nicole I think you should go I need to talk to my mom and clear things up with her. I think it would be best if you go home.
Kk, sorry Emily about cracking your window.” That is ok, see you tomorrow I guess.
Bye Emily” I go to talk to my mom and tell her how Nicole even got up stairs with the ball and my mom is really mad it at me.
“Sorry mom about it, I will be upstairs getting ready for practice.
Ok, now hurry up!”
I get upstairs and put on my Rolling Meadows shorts and shirt then I grab my phone and put it in my basketball bag.
Soon enough I am in the gym and I am waiting and waiting finally my BFF Stacy shows up and then I hear something it sounds like a lock.
I run to the doors and open them but they won’t even budge a tiny bit. I call to Stacy “The doors are locked!!! Ok we will wait until someone comes.” We wait and wait but nobody shows up.
I run to my bag and call my mom she doesn’t understand then suddenly the lights go off it is pitch black and then I see someone come up to the door. It is kind of greenish and it is in the shape of a ball then I see strings attached to them.
Stacy says “They are balloons!
Maybe there is a party here!” And then I see a key in his pocket but he just makes sure that the doors are locked we yell and yell but he doesn’t care that we are locked in the gym that is pitched black. “This is going to be the worlds worst day!”
I call my mom back and soon enough she is at Rolling Meadows in the hallway and she is asking the Janitor to let us out but he doesn’t want us to get let out because he said that the scientists are going to do experiments on us and see how we react to certain sour stuff. But then we found a back closet in the gym and walked through it. We ended up in the field house and then we found a door all the way across the field house. There's a party and we squeezed through the party and when we finally came to the door we were already squeezed out of breath. We were both panting when we reached the door. We pushed the door open and finally we where out of that dreadful place then I reached in my pocket and grabbed my phone and called Stacy’s mom to come get her.
Finally we get home and I wash my face then get my pajamas on and get right in bed then halfway through the night I get super cold I grab my blanket but it shrunk then I see Nicky standing right next to my bed with half of my blanket in his hand!! “Mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She comes racing into my room and she looks at Nick and yells at him like there is no tomorrow. He starts to cry and goes into his room.
Then I wake up from my nap on the couch and then I see the clock 11:11 I made a wish that that dream was all fake and that it will never happen! I am sweating and I thought of that dream as a nightmare. I am glad there are laws and rules and how we need rules and laws to get us through the day!
