Today in Physics, eighth grade students continued their cooling and melting labs. Having done their research and finalized their procedures, students began performing trials to test their hypotheses. The tests were designed to study the effects of heating and cooling on ionic and covalent compounds and to identify any trends. Students studied the differences in mass, melting point temperature, and the time it took various similar substances (such as metals) to melt. Throughout the week students will continue performing trials and analyzing the data to determine if their hypotheses have been confirmed. #WhyNysmith ... See MoreSee Less

In Science, second grade students have been applying Archimedes’ lesson regarding how to measure the volume of an irregularly shaped object. Students were tasked with measuring the volume of small and large marbles grouped into bunches of five, ten, and fifteen. The students measured water into graduated cylinders to establish the initial water level. The bunches of marbles were then added to the graduated cylinders and the new water level was measured. The difference between the initial water level and final water level was found to be the volume of that bunch of marbles. Students enjoyed experimenting with various marble sizes and quantities and learning about Archimedes. ... See MoreSee Less
