In sixth grade, we discovered the difference in densities of hot and cold water. We used divided tanks that we poured hot (red) water in one side and cold (blue) water in the other. Upon lifting the divider we noticed the cold water staying at the bottom beneath the hot and the hot moving to the top of the cold. We learned that cold water is more dense than warm water because the molecules are moving slower.
The fourth grade had special guests from the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium teach us all about the habitats of Utah. We had a great time exploring the sights, sounds, and textures of the desert, wetland, and forest. They learned about Utah’s biomes, animals that live in these biomes and their adaptations. We even met some live Utah animals.
From Mrs. Herrmann: Students were in groups and wrote songs about the properties of magnets. They worked so well and agreed to disagree. They wrote their own lyrics and had some dance moves too. They performed their songs in front of the class so we could all enjoy them. They did an awesome job! I love my class. They make me excited to come to work each day!
