Bottle Rockets

Attributions: 

Students in Mrs. Howard's fifth grade class have been experimenting.  During this experiment, we tried to find the best "rocket fuel" for our bottle rockets. We mixed several solids (alka seltzer, baking soda) with liquids (soda, water, and vinegar), and tried to come to a conclusion about which combination worked best. We had fun testing our hypotheses and being scientists for the day!

What is Science?

Attributions: 

This week the kindergartners at Orchard Hills have been learning about what science is.  Science is: water, land, animals, our bodies, seasons, senses, experiments, wondering, asking questions, fossils, rocks, and much much more!  In Miss Rowley's class each child was asked to share some sort of science project or subject with the class.  Some shared with the class were: sink and float, magnets, leaf collection, making a volcano, color experiments, and more.  Science is fun!
