Heating the Earth

Today in science, students set up an investigation to find out what happens when the sun shines on four earth materials: water, sand, dry soil, and wet soil. They monitored temperature of the earth materials for 20 minutes in the sun and the shade. They organize the data on a graph and relate the differences in temperature to the properties of the materials. While the students were waiting to record their temperatures over the elapsed period of time, they were able to independent read their “just right book.” Please see pictures below.

The Springdale Sprint is tomorrow! Room 208 is currently in 2nd place! Way to go 208! Can’t wait to see what kind of runner’s this class is made up of!

Thanks and have a good night.
