Magic Al

February 29 and March 1st, elementary students were excited to work with Al Stawicki, from Cable WI. Students participated in several hands on science experiments.

Magic Al is called the Great “PHEOC” Quote “I have the greatest job in the whole world, I’m a teacher! Being a teacher, the acronym “PHEOC” helps students better understand and use the “Scientific Method.”

Problem (Problem solving)-Hypothesis (Forming hypotheses)-Experiment (Testing a hypothesis through experimentation)-Observation (Learning how to use all five senses in order to make an observation)-Conclusion (Drawing conclusions)

Gravity, air pressure, temperature, following directions, surface tension, absorption, laws of motion, surface area and science safety are all explored.
