APRIL NEWS!

Hope you all enjoyed your spring break.  I know I was able to catch up on things around the house and enjoyed time with my family. 

Right before break, we were finally able to dissect our deer hearts that have been "on ice" since fall.  The students really loved this activity and I posted a few pictures below from this year.  I wasn't able to get many photos since it was a very busy day and I had several students with curious questions! 

We will be finishing up the year studying a little Earth science with a special mineral unit that will allow students to pan for their own minerals.  Then on to our physical science unit with Newton's Laws of Motion and building paper roller coasters during the final weeks of school. It is going to be 9 weeks of fun-filled learning activities!

Flame test activity!   Lithium chloride produces a crimson flame.  The students were excited to see all the pretty colors that the chlorine salts produced.  This was a favorite color!

DEER HEARTS heart  

A special thanks to all of the parents and students who brought in deer hearts for us to dissect.  We had 34 total hearts to examine and study!   I was able to take a few pictures!
