Science 8: Today we went over the answers to pg 31. We looked at 9 items, trying to decide whether they were alive or not. Most of our class was spent with the Ono Cho visitors, learning about Japanese Tea, Calligraphy, Pop Culture, and Pokemon.

Science 8: Today we learned about various pieces of science equipment found in a highschool science lab. Your assignment was to write a procedure to determine which travel mug (one from The Modern Bakery and one from La Baguette) would keep hot drinks hotter for a longer period. A procedure is a numbered list of steps that describes how an experiment is done. The steps need to be detailed enough that another scientist could follow the steps again to confirm the result from the experiment. We will do our safety test on Tuesday, and I will check your supplies on Monday (binder with fresh paper, text, pencils, pens, ruler, protractor, calculator, hair tie for those with long hair).
