6th graders measuring the volume of irregular shaped objects using water displacement
6th grade learns about density and how liquids and objects that are more dense sink, while less dense liquids and objects float
In 7th grade we made a cloud in a jar to demonstrate how evaporation and condensation work to form clouds in the sky
6th graders made a Newtonian fluid
7th grade tested air pressure and how its force pushes equally in all directions.
8th graders test Newton's First Law- "an object in motion stays in motion and an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force."
8th graders test Newton's Second Law F = M x A (force equals mass times acceleration) by throwing different sized balls as hard as they can.
8th graders experiencing Newton's Third Law of Motion- "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."
