This was our first week following our normal schedule, which meant we started science classes! Ms. Anderman is teaching Earth and Space. Mrs. Houston is teaching Robotics and Mrs. Michael will be teaching Processes that Shape the Earth. The students will rotate by trimester though each teacher and unit.
|After watching videos of eclipses, moon phases, and seasons, |
students created drawings about why they thought these events occur
|Students predicted the size and distance of the sun from |
earth in scale and were surprised to realize how large the sun is
compared to earth and how far, far away it is!
In Mrs. Michael's class we explored the Scientific Method by experimenting with Skittles. After this introductory lesson, students will design their own candy experiment by changing variables.
Check out this cool time lapse video Jack made of his group's experiment.
