Sorry that I dropped the ball on my blogs.
I was at a teacher workshop - learning how make our classroom an even more cohesive community.
While I was gone: Students used text books to gain valuable background knowledge on matter and its different phases. They completed a blue packet of questions, which I collected today. On Wednesday they viewed Bill Nye "Phases of Matter" and took notes.
Today: Students filled in a venn diagram comparing solid, liquid and gas. These are the phases of matter we will focus on. We also discussed a fourth stage of matter called plasma.
Scientist for the week is Wangari Maathais - due tomorrow
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TWO REPORTS IN BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK!
