Kitchen Chemistry Mystery Powders

Students actively examined 6 mystery powders, observing their smell, appearance, texture, color and more.  Later, they observed and recorded how iodine and vinegar independently reacted with the six powders.  Some students heated the mystery powders to test if any of them reacted to the heat.  Click here to see photos from Friday's chemistry activities.

Friday Architects: Marshmallow Magic Game

Today's architects played the Marshmallow Magic Game. The students built a stable structure using pieces they collected throughout the game.  In addition, Graeme and Sam shared some architectural blueprints from the remodel of Sam's home.  Pictures can be seen here!

Friday Architects: Sketching Green Peppers

Curious?  It was an interesting Friday Architects!  Students gathered in groups to sketch the elevation, plan, and section of a green pepper.  Ask your child about these new terms.  These sketches were inspired by the illustrations in David Macaulay's books (CathedralPyramid,CityUndergoundCastle, etc.).  Click here to see the students hard at work...

Friday Architects: Building Bridges

Today's Friday Architects challenge was to build a paper bridge that could support pennies.  Students started off the challenge by discussing the form and function of a bridge.  Then each team had to build 4 bridges using two stacks of books and one piece of paper per bridge.  The two stacks of books had to have a span (ask your child what this means) of 6 inches.  The paper could be torn, folded, twisted, etc.  Ask your child how many pennies their bridges held and which design was best.  Click here to see pictures.
