Nitrogen experiment_1.jpeg

Nitrogen experiment_2.jpeg

Mrs. Brooks and co-teacher, Mrs. McMillan's 6th grade Science  classes experienced

 

the different states of matter and the effects temperature had on molecules.  T

 

his liquid nitrogen science lab kept students engaged and excited about finding answers!

 

students predicted and found outcomes.  One example: Students were asked how many

 

air filled balloons would fit into a small Styrofoam cooler with a small amount of liquid nitrogen,

 

most were shocked and amazed when they watched as they placed 23 balloons into the cooler.

 

Then again amazed to watch the air molecules spread back out, re-inflating the balloons as

 

they warmed back up to room temperature.  Other important lesson included Safety,

 

and safety equipment.

After wrapping up their science unit on cells,
Mrs. White’s 5th grade class completed an edible cell project.
 Everything they used to create their cell had to be edible.
Gummy worms, Jello, cookie cakes, jolly ranchers, icing, fruit,
and even pizza toppings were among the few creative ideas to
 complete the yummy assignments. After all their hard work of
 creating and presenting their cell to the class, students were
able to eat their project. Who knew cells could be so delicious?!
