States of Matter

We talked about the States of Matter today in class. Remember my story about the concert? What State of Matter would you rather be imitating if you went to a concert? Solid? Liquid? Gas?

Tomorrow you should be able to draw me an example of the particles of matter in a solid, liquid, and a gas. Here's a little reminder just in case you need it :)

Atomic Theory Timeline

Daily Objective: 
I will understand the Atomic Theory Timeline. 

Today in class we learned about the Atomic Theory and how in the world we know that atoms even exist.  It was fun learning about the different scientific discoveries and how each of the different theories built on the previous theories.  

Will the current electron cloud theory that we have today remain?  Who knows!  Maybe YOU will be the next scientist to discover something new and unique about atoms! :)

Here are the videos from the Atomic Theory that were on the presentation from class today.  If you have time to watch them, DO IT.  You'll be glad you did! :)

Introduction to the atom: The atom, proton, neutron and electron

First Week Success!

We have made it to Thursday, and so far we have had an amazing first week of school.  Thank you to all of you for working hard, following class procedures, and just being spectacular!

Just a few reminders. . .

If you did not finish your Scientific Method WebQuest in class, you will need to finish it up for homework.  It is due on Monday August 18th.  If you already finished it and turned it in, HOORAY! :)

Tomorrow (Friday August 15) your Science Disclosure is due.  Make sure you bring it in and put it in the "In Box" so you can get your effort points.

Also, make sure you have your 1 inch binder and five dividers by Monday August 18th.  We will be putting them together and labeling them in class.  If you are unable to get the binder, please let me know and we will work something out.

Last, but not least, remember that you will get extra credit points if your parents do the Million Words or Less letter.  They can email it to me, or write it up and send it with you to class.

I think that's it!  Tomorrow is FRIDAY!  Here's to a GREAT weekend :)
