G6 Week 11

Thursday, November 16th

Today in science: Students finished preparing their lab notebooks for INV#1 – Temperature and Solubility. The work that we did as a class on the whiteboard can be seen via THIS link. Students also collected their materials and received instructions regarding the use of the metal spatula (How does one determine one spatula of salt?) and thermometer (How, and where, should we take the temperature of water?). Today’s safety drill made it so that students could not begin their experiment before the end of the class period.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Today in science: Because of the special MS schedule today, H period was shortened by 15 minutes. During this time, students began preparing their lab notebooks for INV#1 – Temperature and Solubility. The work that we did as a class on the whiteboard can be seen via THIS link.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Today in science: H period does not meet on Tuesdays.

Monday, November 13th

Today in science: Students took their graduated measurement quiz today. This took about half of the 45-minute class period. After that, students were asked to set up their experiment stations with a Bunsen burner and to see if they could get a beaker of water to boil in the time remaining. Although some students began seeing small bubbles produced in the bottom of their beakers within (approximately) 10 minutes, they discovered that our Bunsen burners will probably take 15 or so minutes to bring 250 mL of water to a rapid/aggressive boil.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
