On the evening of
Wednesday, May 16, the fourth graders of room 15 hosted Science Night,
2018 The students' families and friends came to take part in hands-on
science, and the fourth graders led the way; they were incredible! The
students chose a
topic to study, created a question and designed an activity that would
answer the question. They then organized all their materials, created
the manner in which they would present their information and
guided the community through the activity. The fourth graders worked
with small children, teenage siblings, parents and grandparents.
Activities included making a milky rainbow, flying paper helicopters,
deciding if Oobleck is a liquid or a solid, creating "elephant
toothpaste", testing materials to see if they are acids or bases,
creating models of motors to spin copper wire, making a bubble dome
with dry ice, and the layering of liquids based on density. The
students had a great time, and there
was a great deal of science learning taking place. Enjoy the photos
from an extremely successful night of science from Science Night, 2018.
The calm before the storm . . .
