• Standards that will be addressed:

    * Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

    * Make obsercations to provide ecidence that energy can be transferered from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electrical currents.

    * Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

    Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

  • Science in the News

    s Each Monday we have time for students to share something about science that they read, heard, or saw on the news.  They bring in something written down about science and share it with the class. This week Maddie shared about birds evolving from dinosaurs, and Mary shared about the weather related storm damage.s

  • Balls and Ramps

    Posted by Jill Rochford on 10/24/2017 1:00:00 AM

    Students are working on figuring out how to get a ball to go the furthest.  Some science groups are changing the height of the ramps,others the weight of the balls, and some are testing the length of the ramp.
