Mr. Mclellan's Science Spotlight

Mr. McClellan has been teaching many of your children in fifth grade about “air and weather”. Since we recently experienced preparations for a possible hurricane, Mr. M took the opportunity of teaching what elements of our weather contribute to a hurricane. For example, we discussed how air pressure, moisture, evaporation, heat energy and even the rotation of the earth are some of the contributing elements. We discussed evaporation, made a demo model to simulate the ocean, then discussed condensation and did a number of air and air pressure experiments. We even made FROST! They should know a LOT about air itself! We even made a real cloud with an air pump and another cloud from the microwave – using a bar of ivory soap! Then in geography the children were discussing cardinal directions, so we made a water compass that pointed to the north with a paper clip and a magnet! Awesome! Finally, we incorporated writing skills by using sequential sentence structure that explained the order of steps in our science exercise. Science is FUN…and EDUCATIONAL in many academic disciplines.
