Wednesday Class

Today in science we flip flop what we did yesterday. The only additional thing is that students received this road map to complement the activities that we are doing. This road map is used to organized the classroom activities and how they relate to our driving question.

Today Mr. Malefyt's class did a pH lab. Mr. Wandels class did a Boiling Point Lab. Tomorrow we will switch. The driving question for the current project is: "How do we explain the differences between baking ingredients?"

Monday Class

Today in science we started a project called, "Properties of Baking Ingredients". We showed some video clips and did a demonstration to create some curiosity. Then we created a "Need to Know" list as a project foundation.

Most information for this project will be communicated through our use of edmodo. Each student has a edmodo account.

In the native species garden, the weather kept us inside.  We wrapped up our scale drawings of the garden beds and began looking at native species plants to place in the garden.
