Science Day

Image result for science clipart

It was super science day in our classroom! Today we moved our classroom to the school Multi-Purpose room and camped there for the day. We had an all day science experience.

Our second grade science unit is about balance and weighing. We began the day talking about the Scientific method and made super scientist crowns to wear for the day.  

Our first task was to balance a butterfly on a pencil.

Our science buddies helped us work through all of the experiments.

We balanced cubes on a beam by moving the fulcrum to different parts of the beam in order to get the weight distributed .

Then it was time for the arm balance

We weighed, compared and measured using objects, school supplies, and even food

We had a super science day!

Egg Project

Today we celebrated our classroom diversity and discussed how lucky we are to be able to be in class with so many different and unique friends!

Next we completed the "Egg Project"  and discussed how even though the eggs were different on the outside they were the same on the inside.

The student responses were thoughtful and sincere

We listened to Dr. Martin Luther King's speech as we worked
