We have finally left the Sun and will be traveling to the Moon and beyond! In the next few weeks, weather permitting, we will be following the phases of the moon. Students will track the phases of the moon through nightly observations. We will then compare the size and distance between Earth, the Moon and Sun. There is a great chance, we may have to hold off on this part of the unit until the spring. If this is the case, we will then move on to Mixtures and Solutions.
Here are a few pictures from our Gummy Bear experiment. Who knew the gummies would grow and expand! The students were very surprised and had a lot of fun investigating the different liquids and the affects it had on their gummies!
