What's the Matter?

Last week was a lot of learning fun in our science class. We are working our way through our "Properties of Matter" unit and we had lots of hands-on activities to do.



We measured the mass of a variety of objects using our pan balances.




We measured the volume of solid objects using our graduated cylinders.




We measured the temperature of ice, warm and cool water, sand, and rice using thermometers.



And the most fun of all - in STEM class on Wednesday we worked with polymers and made individual bouncy balls!

 

 

My students had fun and seemed to be retaining the new learning through the week. I was a proud teacher after STEM when I asked if anyone knew what kind of engineers we were that day and a student said  "Chemical Engineers!" If you would like the directions for the balls, click here.
