Hands-On Experiments

We've had a great week of hands-on experiments!  I've included some photos below.  Ask your child to describe the activities and what he/she learned.

We went outside to measure the length and width of the playground in feet and meters.

We created "Poppa's New Pants".

We explored how sound travels through the 3 states of matter.

Students created a closed circuit to light the bulb.

Gravity vs Friction

Ask your child about today's ramp experiment.  Can he/she explain the force that pulled the marble down the ramp (gravity), and the force that stopped the marble (friction)?  We had some great synergy in our groups today.  Together is better!
