THIS WEEK IN CLASS
Science Methods: Presentations covered everything from clouds to dog preferences. We also learned about minerals and practiced testing them for crystalline shape, hardness, streak, magnetism, reaction with hydrochloric acid, and other identification tests.
Life Science: We created dichotomous keys and also practiced using other people's dichotomous keys.
Physical Science: Buoyancy calculations and classroom presentations covered the bulk of the class time. Students also started creating boats to test for buoyancy.
