Monday, Sept 30th- Today we compared continued our study of "Patterns of Earth and Sky," using our brand new workbooks. No homework was assigned.
Friday, Sept 27th- Today we went looking in a space simulation for planets that might be hospitible to life.
Wednesday, Sept 25th- Today we discussed models of the earth, and then learned how to open and navigate a simulation of changing constellations in the night sky
Tuesday, Sept 24th- Today we went over the last quiz question by questions, correcting any misconceptions as we went along.
Monday, Sept 23rd- Today we compared hypotheses about two strange "relics." We also learned a little bit about what astromoners are.
Friday, September 20h - We tool a quiz today. On Monday we start a new unit called "Patterns of Earth and Sky." It's about astronomy.
Thursday, Sept 19th- Today we made up hypotheses about two strange "relics." Students were also reminded to use their study guides to review for Friday's pendulum quiz.
Wednesday, Sept 18th- Use a study guide to review for Friday's quiz.
Tuesday, Sept 17th- Tomorrow used the graph to spot trends and make predictions about pendulum speeds. We also began reviewing for the Friday's quiz.
Monday, Sept 16th- Today we learned about more about variables. We learned to APPLY last week's pendulum dicoveries to remedy a slow-running grandfather clock. we also reviewed how to GRAPH the results of a pendulum investigation on a two-coordinate graph. Tomorrow we'll learn to use the graph to spot trends and make predictions.
Friday, September 13th - We did an experiment today that showed the relationship between a pendulum's starting positionand its speed. we kept the length constant, but changed how high we raised it before dropping it.
Thursday, Sept, 12th - We learned how to graph the data from the pendulum investigation today.
Wednesday, Sept, 11th - We did an experiment today that showed the relationship between a pendulum's weight and its speed. we kept the length constant, but added pennies one at a time.
Tuesday, Sept, 10th - We did an experiment today that showed the relationship between a pendulum's length and its speed.
Monday, Sept 9th- Today we learned about pendulums.
