Science Club Updates

January 10 - Science Club Special Guest

January 17 - Science Club Field Trip

January 24 - Prove It!

    Based on student interests, we began to explore Physics. I love the Science I CAN READ book Prove It! by Rose Wyler and Gerald Ames.

    We began with the properties of water and a look at surface tension:

    "Why Drops are Round," pages 6-7

      look at our water droplets through jeweler's loupes

      extra exploration: how many drops of water fit on a penny?

    "Make a Needle Float," pages 8-9

      explain how plants use surface tension in their vascular tissue

    "Chase the Pepper," pages 10-11

      extra exploration: add sugar to water/pepper without the soap first... does the pepper draw towards the sugar?

        soapy water - weakest

        plain water - strong

        sugar water - strongest

    "A Boat that Runs with Soap," pages 12-13
