Guess what? We're back! And this time we're blogging about science! We have a new unit, and it's about air. We finished our insect unit two weeks ago (so we are experts about insects), but we are just starting to learn about air. Last week we got to observe air under water. We had a vial with a paper towel stuck in the bottom. We had a big challenge - we had to try to keep the towel dry, even though we put the whole vial underwater!! When we put it in upside-down, the air couldn't get out anywhere, so it pushed the water down and kept the paper towel dry. And that's how we learned that air takes up space.
This blog is maintained as a collaboration between all students and myself. Each week, one student has the classroom job of "Blogger". That student helps decide subjects for our posts, as well as writing one blog post about him/herself.
