Easter Candy Science!

Today’s Activity –

Part 1: What happens when you microwave Peeps?

Part 2: Experiment – Predict which substance will dissolve Peeps the most: vinegar, Sprite, cold water or boiling water. Submerge for 8 minutes, then take out and record data. (AND FOLLOW THE SCIENTIFIC PROCESS EVEN WHEN THERE IS A FIRE DRILL IN THERE.)

(Hint – tomorrow’s Easter Candy Science involves building!)

Coming up. . .

Final draft of research reports (typed and printed) is due on Monday (Feb. 27th). Students are working on them every day this week. Many will need to do a little work at home as well. They can access Word in Office 365 online at home and at school for the typing part. They may also bring their research folder home at any time, as long as they bring it back the next day. (If you need your child’s Office 365 log-in info, please email me for that.)

Tomorrow is Pink Shirt day! It is also the day we are passing out 90 carnations as our Random Act of Kindness project. We will be leaving the school after Recess, at about 10:45.
