Check Out What We’ve Been Up To

We performed an investigation to examine water clarity. We used a secchi disk to measure the depth of which we could see into the water.

We looked at 3 different buckets with different amounts of soil mixed in with water. We did three trials for each bucket to measure the depth to ensure consistency.

Group members had to work together to stir, drop, observe, and record their data.

It was cold outside, but at least the sun was out to help encourage warm thoughts!

Students had to pay attention to when the disk “disappeared” int he water.

Student took turns in various roles. 

To review for our math test, we played Jeopardy in class. Each group worked on math problems and were awarded points for correct answers!

If the team who got to choose the category and question got the problem correct, they got to play “trash-ketball” and earn some possible extra points.
