Radiation Experimentation

Despite a bit of wind, we enjoyed some quality radiation from the sun today!

8th graders went outside for another reading circle and fresh air. We finished the chapter on mammals and birds. HW over the weekend is a coloring packet on mammals.

6th graders went outside for a lab about... radiation! We wrapped one jar in white paper and one jar in black paper and put 250ml of room temperature water in each. Then, the jars were put in direct sunlight and the temperature was measured every two minutes for 22 minutes. I am interested to see everyone's results. Do not forget to answer questions in 2 complete sentences!


7th graders missed out on lecture today due to picture day, but we will continue with the mitosis presentation on Monday. I, however, got to spend some time with the 4th ad 5th graders, who are very sweet. 7th graders will receive a handout on cell division and mitosis tomorrow to complete over the weekend.
