FFE- Grant Summary
Life Science: Microorganisms
The students took samples from all over the school to find out where microorganisms were found. We realized from our samples that microbes are everywhere! Students also viewed pond water, rain water (puddles), and tap water. They realized that water is a host to microorganisms and must be purified for drinking.
Earth Science/Life Science Combo: Evergreen Garden
Life Science: Animal Classification
Physical Science: Electricity
Students used batteries, light bulbs, and wires to create series and parallel circuits. They experimented with both, coming to the conclusion that a parallel circuit is better because multiple things can run on the circuit without interfering with each other. The students also used the circuits to test different materials to determine which are conductors of electricity and which are insulators.
