Mr. Mcclellan's Science Spotlight

This week Mr. M continues observations of the properties of dry ice with the fourth graders in Mrs. Standard's and Mr. Leslie's classes. Here you see a sublimated dry ice bubble that is actually rolling down the blue towel. Wow! THAT'S pretty cool. We even made a spoon sing a kind of weird sound and froze a penny. We measured the size of bubbles made with our homemade bubble maker and suggested various ways of experimenting and looking at doing a scientific lab report on the soap used to make the bubbles.

The fourth graders got an opportunity to get into the fun by making their own water compasses and learned about magnetic induction. Awesome! LOTS of great questions were generated about magnetism. DO you know what four metals that magnets are attracted to? Steel, nickel, iron and cobalt! NONE of our U.S currency coins that you see circulated today are attracted to a magnet.

Mrs. Seeber's, Mrs. Gibney's class, Mrs. Rodriquez and Mrs. Snell's class learned about our solar system and made diagrams of the lunar phases of our moon. Does everyone know what a new moon looks like? Ask your child? Does the moon rise in the east or in the west? Ask your child? Do you know what a gibbous moon is? Well, you get it. You need to ask them to see some of the notes their taking in science and that you want to see their science journal. These kids are not only young scientists - but fantastic artists. I've been really impressed to see these notes on their science lessons and what they've been learning. You will be too!
