We have been learning so much in science class in the past few months. We've been doing hands-on experiments with states of matter. We observed and recorded differences in balloons filled with gas, liquid, and solids. We made an oobleck to help us understand suspensions. We've microwaved Ivory soap to help us understand that there were water molecules in the soap and what happens to that water when it is heated up. Ms. Beth, the Environmental Education Specialist for Pinchot State Park, came to school and taught us about some of the animals we see in our local environment. She will be teaching us more in May, when we visit her on our field trip to Pinchot State Park. Over the next few weeks, we will be doing more in science, learning about the water cycle and the life cycle of some of our local critters. Enjoy the slideshow below of some science fun!
