More Cause and Effect

November 13th, 2016 No comments

Dear Scientists,

Last week, we started the Cause and Effect Unit by Describing Solids, Liquds and Gases and observing their properties. We also investigated the effect of heat on the shape, size and mass of ice, and extended the investigation to observe and describe the shape and size of solids, liquids and gases in a flexible container.

This week, we need to wear close toed shoes all week because we will continue to do investigations on the properties of solids, liquids and gases. We begin by looking at the differences between salt and sugar. We will continue to discover more about solids, liquids and gases in stations until the end of the week. Since we will be using flames this week, please remember to bring hair ties, especially if your hair is long enough to cover your face.

So far, we have been doing a lot of discovery experiments. Please remember to keep up with our learning by making sure that the questions for each activity or experiment or investigation are answered thoughtfully, using academic language. Also, remember that the Mung Bean Lab Report corrections need to be completed by Friday, November 18. Finally, this week, we will meet 3 days because Wellness is scheduled for Lesson 3 in Science.

As a treat, we have a visiting Astronaut, Soichi Noguchi, on Monday, November 14 from 3 pm. to 4 pm.  He will give a talk in the AMR.  You don’t want to miss this!

Enjoy this exciting week!

The Week Back

November 3rd, 2015 No comments

Hello Science Guys,

This is a short week.

This week, we recap our learnings from the Mung Bean Investigation in a blog post.  We also make connections to see which aspects of How Science Works we did during this investigation.

We will continue to investigate solids, liquids and gases to add to our knowledge and understanding of their distinct properties.  Get ready with your close toed shoes and hair tie if you have long hair.  We will be doing labs this week and next.

Be sure to check your Google Calendars!

Happy short week!


Mrs. Vergel
