This week, biology students learned how to perform tests to indicate for the presence of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, & nucleic acids; the chemicals of life. We ended the 3-day lab with testing food/drink products for these macromolecules. Next week they will learn how the cell makes and/or used these macromolecules.
Physics students are looking at conservation of momentum. One of the activities involved the transfer of momentum from one body to another. The problem is that it all happens so fast. Students used the cameras on their phones to record the data so they could see the detail.
On Tuesday students were using a crayon or sugar cube to simulate as many process of the rock cycle as possible. They then had to document the processes and "rocks" that were made by taking pictures and writing descriptions. They then presented using one of our Google Tools LucidChart. Here are some examples of finished products.
