We noticed that the pond skater was so light that it didn't break the surface tension.The surface tension doesn't break because the insect spreads all his weight on different places.

Miss Florence:
I think I have to congratulate you because of the grate video you found. I noticed that the bug, did a bubble like Felipe said, and that made the bug float. The video called me the attention because I saw how the bug was still and suddnly it moved quickly, it was very strange. Also what called me the attention was how nature gives you more things, and incredible things.
I say that this video is the best one, because it makes you think a lot. And the most special that I fonund in this video was a question that came into my mind. Why nature is so good with us and give us a lot of things, like happines, bugs, coulors, and WORK, (llike finding out new things and publish them etc..)and we treet it like this, cutting his trees down, or doing lots of things like contaminating that is very unfair? I think that if I would be nature, I wouldn`t be so kind like he is to us. I also think that if we go on like this, when we wake up tomorrow, everything is going to be bad like it should be, so everyone that reads my comment, put a "granito de arena" to help this bugs, or this nature, LIVE.

I watched the video and I noticed that:
The bug made bubbles that they produce surface tension. The bug floats because of that, if not he would sink into the water..
He also in his "little boat" tried to eat another bug.

It's quite impressive to see how the bugs floa on water and chase themselves. You told us in class that they floa because of serface tension, as the bug is so light it doesn't break the skin of the water so it floats.

Hi miss Florence:

I think the bug could walk on the water because it made some bubbles on his legs and thatmade friction that cause the bug to walk on water
I Also think that this water was a little bit more solid than the normal one so that was another advantage fot the bug to walk on the water

Hi Miss Florence!
You found a great video! It showed you things very clear, it showed things perfectly.
One of the things that I noticed throughout the video was that the water created a kind of bubble that seemed to help the bug float. It was a sort buoy. The bubbles produce surface tension and thats why the bug stays in the water´s surface. Something else that I noticed while watching the video was that bugs sometimes are very still but after a while it moves very fast. It does that because it doesn’t want to call the attention because he wants to attack what will be his food.
I think that nature is incredible! How it shows as things like that and every question that we have while we watch it and admire it its answered because scientist that focus on nature work very hard to understand the nature and what it causes.

It was incredible to see what surface tension may allow to the lightest bugs. However, if my eyes didn't tell me lies, it was horrible how the bigger bug attacked the smaller bug to have a meal! I also have a question, if there are to many bugs on the water, could the surface tension breack?

hi miss florence, it was very good to see how the pond skater walked over the water and how the water resists his weight and that I think is surface tension that it alsou help upthrast.If you get a ant and you throu it to the woter hard the ant will sink but if you see hou a ant gous in a pond aloun the ant would not sink.

I can see that every time a drop of water falls into the water, it makes like a kind of miny wave that goes on and on.
The insect is kind of "floating" in the water, but what is really happening is that the insect is in the surface of the water because of the surface tension.
I can also see that in every part of the insects body that is in the water it afects the waters shape and gives it another shape, always like a half sphere.
When the insect moves the waters "corriente" makes a very little move and he advances.
It is incredible to see how one of them eats the other one, just in some few seconds.
At almost the end of the video when they are showing the bigger insect I was able to see hundreds of little thing in the water, floating.

Hi Miss Florence,

I noticed that the tension is visable under the Skater's feet, and that when they move the legs touching the water don't actually make any movement whatsoever. They lift two back ones and somehow propel themselves fowards. Their speed is astounding!
