And we're right back in it here in the science lab. Students have been learning the difference between a guess, a prediction, and a hypothesis as well as 'saving sam' using science. Sam is a gummy worm. While in his boat on Lake Michigan, he capsized and it was the job of my students to save him by placing a life saver preserver on his body only using paper clips. Too much fun! Much more to come...
Here's to the 2014/15 School Year!
4th Graders, in an effort to dispose of our roller coaster projects in a safe and effective manner, decided Godzilla had to pay them a visit!
Below is a slow motion video we created with the kindergarteners here at Fairview. We wanted to see how their webbed feet moved in the water, and watching in slow motion allowed that to happen.

From time to time we set up a live video feed from the primary science lab to allow students to monitor an experiment's progress from home. Over the weekend and into the beginning of next week, we should hopefully (fingers crossed) have some baby chicks and baby ducklings hatching, and you can watch live at the website below. Chicks take 21 days to incubate and ducks, 28. They are all due to hatch somewhere between Sunday May 11th (Evening) and Tuesday May 13th (Morning). It is likely the most action will take place all day Monday (12th) but you never know.

The third graders at Fairview have been learning and experimenting how oil spills affect the environment and how difficult they are to clean up. They were instructed to plan for, contain, clean up, and then evaluate an model oil spill using materials from the oil spill clean up store which cost the teams money.
