Middle School Science has had an exciting first trimester!
Sixth Grade Science students have been investigating the different ways in which Earth’s plates move. We completed a lab called S’More Tectonics where we used graham crackers, fluff, and chocolate to simulate the movement at a divergent, convergent, and transform boundary!
In 7th Grade Science, students recently finished a unit on the different parts of the cell. In groups, they needed to compare each function of the cell to a different part of a city. For example, a group put the nucleus as the mayor’s office. They then presented their “cell city” to the class.
Lastly, 8th Grade Science students have been writing the formula and name of covalent compounds. This unit wrapped up with a lab to determine whether water or isopropyl alcohol had a higher surface tension.
We have many more exciting, hands-on labs to perform as we move into the second trimester!
