This video is a mixture of Science, S.S., & 5K buddy activities. In Science, students measured the diameter of bubbles they blew in order to determine their lung capacity. For S.S., pairs worked together to identify locations on globes using latitude and longitude. 5th grade played fox and chickens with their 5K buddies.
Students used a balance, triple beam balance, and spring scale to determine the mass of 3 different density blocks. They then used a graduated cylinder and water to figure the volume of the blocks. Finally, they calculated the density, (d=m/v). This was done in pairs and small groups.

In Science, the Fifth Grade has been studying atoms and the Periodic Table of Elements. Each student selected an element and created a 3D model of it. In pairs, we also created gumdrop molecules.
Fifth grade students observed chemical reactions involving a variety of materials, including Alka-Seltzer, calcium chloride, and baking soda. They also researched, designed, built, and tested solar cookers to culminate our alternative energy unit.
Third grade students explored speed and electricity during two separate science experiments. In one, they constructed ramps to see how the height of the ramp affected the speed and distance the ball traveled. In the other, students lit bulbs by completing circuits.
