Bathysphere and Bathyscaphe

Did you know that in the year 1930, a man invented the bathysphere?

I learned from my Social Studies that a man designed the bathysphere so that it could be lowered from a ship by connecting cable onto the ocean floor more than a half a mile, almost one kilometer, from the surface. Cables are strong ropes made of metal. Divers could stay under water in the bathysphere for several hours. However, in a bathysphere, it was not possible to follow around the interesting animals of the sea. Once the bathysphere was lowered by the cable, it had to remain there until the cable was pulled up again.

This is a picture of a bathysphere.

Later, a more complex vessel was invented. It is called a bathyscaphe. In bathyscaphe, scientist can remain under water for several days in order to study the conditions of the ocean floor and the kinds of animal life which live there.


A bathyscaphe was used to plunge into the greatest ocean depth known to man.

This is an interesting fact I learned this week. Want to learn more? Visit Bee Wise.

Did you know that the study of the ocean is called Oceanography?

I learned from my Science lesson that Oceanography actually includes many different science. For instance, some scientists in oceanography study the different kinds of energy found within the ocean. Men study about heat energy, light energy, and sounds found in the ocean. Other scientists of oceanography study how weather affects the oceans, in turn, and how oceans affect the weather. Other oceanography study the living creatures and tiny bacteria of the sea.
Even though scientists study for many years , there are still many many questions about the sea they cannot answer. Some questions will actually never be answer, although men will continue to search for answers.

Here is a picture of a lovely sail boat sailing on the ocean.

Important English Lesson

Here are the grammar rules in changing singular words to plural that I learned in my English lesson this week.

1. When a noun ends with f or fe, we sometimes change the f or fe to v and add es.

Example: wife - wives
self - selves
wolf - wolves

2. When a noun ends in y with a consonant before it, we change the y to i and add es.

Example: family - families
enemy - enemies
puppy - puppies

3. When a noun ends in y with a vowel before it, we add s to make it plural.

Example: boy - boys
toy - toys
key - keys

4. There are some nouns that we must change the spelling to make them plural.

Example: child - children
goose - geese
ox - oxen
mouse - mice

5. There are some nouns that stay the same for both singular and plural.

Example: Japanese - Japanese
sheep - sheep
salmon - salmon
trout - trout
deer - deer

Oceans in The World

Did you know that there are five oceans in the world?

I learned from my Science lesson this week that most of the world's surface is covered with water. If all the water on the earth could be poured into huge tanks a mile long on each side a mile high, it would take 330 million tanks to hold the water. That many tanks would be enough to reach the sun. Each ocean is connected to the others like one vast ocean. Vast means very great. Most land areas are north of the equator while water areas are mostly what we see south of the equator. The equator line runs east and west.

Here is a picture of an ocean.
