The biome that I chose was the grasslands because it seemed very interesting and very exciting.This biome has lots of interesting stuff like the animals and plants,but mostly how the food chain is there.The grasslands are very unique,but there are some very dangerous animals,but there plants are very pretty looking.I also chose this biome because I want to learn what lives there and what type of plants grow there.The things that I will be talking about are where the grasslands are located,how the climate and soil is,what animals and plants grow there,what is their food chain like,and some interesting things.
Cavemen used skills such as hunting which provides a perfect example of a Secondary Survival Instinct. Even though we don’t have the urge to hunt our food today, we still see it prevalent in today’s society through animals (Schleifer). The difference between the survival instincts of a human compared to a wild lion in South Africa is that the “Homo sapiens have the exceptional attribute of self-awareness along with an environmental awareness that includes the social environment” (Brenner). Both cavemen and animals lead a life where survival of the fittest is the ultimate goal. Though animals and humans respond to stimuli such as hunger and thirst, humans understand why they seek strategies to overcome said stimuli and thus, their self-awareness causes rationality in their decision
We are most curious when we are babies. Curiosity is defined as an act of wanting to learn. As babies, we see, touch, hear, taste, and feel the world around us. As babies grow, their minds start to develop and they imagine the world as their fairytale. This stage of a child is wonderful, but dangerous. It is the time when they begin to experiment with what the world has to offer, thus their creative mind is born. A child sees sand for the first time and is curious about it so he or she experiments with it. The child plays with it and creatively builds a sand castle out of it, he or she feels it, smells it, then tastes it, the child will either experience satisfaction of the taste or dissatisfaction. Later on the child may feel a pain in his
In fact, all of the greatest discoveries have hinged on childish curiosity: from Newton’s apple or to America’s way of governing. By Newton expressing novel interest in the most common occurrence known, things falling, he helped find one of the fundamental truths of the universe. By America’s founding fathers questioning why they are taxed so much they ushered in a new era of democracy, creating one of the most advanced civilizations. Apparent in each example is the effect of childish curiosity: how it allowed progress through innovation and how it expressed freedom through untapped theories. Despite different content, curiosity affects all, which in turn improves every facet of
Curiosity can be a real good motivator and if we can not predict the behavior of this person, we will seek information in order to predict future behavior.
Curious. Curious for what? Curious for life. Curious for people. Curious of Knowledge. Curiosity is an attribute of mine in which I attain. To some I may be the exasperating girl in class who asks the teacher too many questions. However, to me I am the girl who desires to learn beyond the traditional classroom education. As a child, I would constantly point to assorted objects and query my mother “Ma, what is this. Where dis’ come from?” Today, disparate from when I was a child, I coherently question my mom. To some questions she
This week's weather change could be a boon to duck hunters, as a freeze up north should drive some new birds down into the Grasslands. Last Saturday, my son Bill and a friend had a pretty good shoot at the Santa Cruz Club south of Los Banos. They had a good early morning flight, mostly Greenwing Teal and Northern shovelers. They ended up with 11 ducks, including one Canvasback, before the flight ended about 10:30 a.m. To make it more challenging, they were both shooting 20 gauge shotguns. My son is still shooting the same Remington Model 58 that I gave him in 1970, when he was 13 years old. The public shooting areas showed some increase in averages last Saturday in the Sacramento Valley with Delevan and Sacramento Refuges being the best. In the Los Banos Complex, Merced and Los Banos units picked up to around two birds per hunter.
West Virginia is known as the "mountain state." It consists of many beautiful lakes, rivers, streams, and quite a few tourist attractions, such as Babcock. Not only that, but West Virginia is made up of several different biomes. West Virginia is also made up of forests, as well.
Curiosity is often defined as a strong desire to know or learn something. Being filled to the brim with curiosity is one of the most amazing feelings. Finding something you are interested in and wanting to know every single thing there is to know about it. Being inquisitive is such a powerful thing, always wanting to see more, to hear more, to do more, to be more. It makes people who they are, if someone is not very curious, they might be very dull because they know what they know and they are content with that. It is the naturally curious people that get more out of life, because they are always searching for something more, something bigger and brighter, and often they find it. But, in certain situations, being overly
The Southwest Savanna is characterized by the hilltops, rivers and valleys and steep wooded slopes within the area. The average growing season in this part of southern Wisconsin is 153 days, making it the fourth longest growing season of the different landscapes within the state (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 2015). Of all the land in this section of Wisconsin, about 3.5% belongs to state, county, or municipal governments; this includes the state parks, natural areas, and wildlife areas. (Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 2015). In the past, a majority of the forests in the Southern Savanna burned frequently. These forests depended on the fires to help maintain the area and return nutrients to the soil. In the mid-1800s,
Semi-arid grasslands of the great plains were first settled for a large-scale agricultural in the 1860’s. When congress passed the homestead act and encouraged thousands of families to move to the area. Great plains begged literally to blow the land away. Huge cloud dust covered buildings and homes. Dust Bowl decade the plains were torn by climate extremes. Dirt storms recited of the great plains to suffer through coated furniture, clothes , cooking and eating area. Roosevelt's farm security administration built 13 building camps designed by their own self. Each temporary housing complexed accommodated 300 families in tents. Over many years migrantes from the great plains were integrated into the carolina culture.
The summers are warm and short. The winters are cold and long. Precipitation ranges from more than 500 mm per year in the north to less than 300 mm in the south of the Prairies. The winter mean temperatures for the coldest months vary from -9.4°C in Lethbridge and -18.3°C in Winnipeg. In contrast, the mean temperature for the warmest month in Winnipeg is 19.7°C. The grasses tend to have long roots which penetrate deep into the soil where they could find moisture. The northern edge of this ecozone marks the beginning of the transition into forest areas. Prior to agricultural settlement in the late 19th century, the Prairie ecozone was the home of millions of bison. Today, mammals of this ecozone include mule and white-tailed deer, coyote, pronghorn (south-central portion), badger, whitetail jackrabbit, Richardson's ground squirrel, northern pocket gopher and the prairie dog. Unique bird species include ferruginous hawk, greater prairie chicken, sharp-tailed grouse, American avocet, burrowing owl, great blue heron, black-billed magpie and Baltimore oriole. Plains grizzlies, swift fox and greater prairie chickens are a few of animals to disappear from the
Episodic memory is the ability to remember incidents in one individual’s life with detached information and then recall it later as conscious re-experiences. It is said that this trait is unique to humans, acting as a distinguishing criteria between human beings and other animals. Many use this information to justify some of the studies and experiments that use animals as subjects, such as the chimp raising studies like the one written about in Fowler’s we are all completely beside ourselves. However, Fowler’s character, Fern the chimp, displays the ability to remember pieces of her early life with the Cooke family, and reacts to multiple family members later on the novel. It is also no secret that animals who are rescued often show signs of PTSD, occasionally having flashbacks when put in situations that remind them about their life before rescue.
Historically, prairies covered over one-hundred and seventy million acres of North America and stretched from the Rocky Mountains to the east side of the Mississippi; and from Saskatchewan, south to Texas. It was once the continent’s largest continuous ecosystem, supporting an enormous quantity of plants and animals. Prairies began appearing in the mid-section of our continent eight- to ten-thousand years ago and have developed into one of the most complex and diverse ecosystems in the world, surpassed only by Brazil’s rainforest: from the extreme heat and drought in August to the bitter cold winters locked in frigid winds and ice.
My Personal philosophy is the belief that children are naturally curious individuals who needs an environment that is safe, caring, and supports risk-taking. I believe that teachers should let a child’s curiosity direct them to learning something new. Children are curious because the curiosity grows from familiarity. When children are safe and comfortable in their environment will be willing to explore their surroundings, while a child who is shy and timid might stay where they are and not join the other children. Curiosity is the main fuel in their development, allowing them to explore their discovery. Their discovery leads them to their curiosity.
