Students completed a Solar System vocabulary quiz. Students completed a Solar System Data worksheet as a review activity. Students had to use the Solar System Data Sheet to find the answers on the worksheet. We also watch The Sun and the Inner Planets (the video below is similar to the one watched in class).
Honors Science – Students completed two insulation labs. The first was Keeping Cool (Keeping Cool worksheet). Students took four pop cans, filled it with cold water, placed the can in four cups. Three of the cups had insulation (packing peanuts, tissue paper, and bubble wrap). The fourth cup had no insulation. Students had to determine the best insulator. The second lab was Chill Out. Students placed bubble wrap around one cup and used another cup with no insulation. They had to determine how effective air is as an insulator.
