Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday Sir Isaac Newton!!
Isaac Newton was born in 1642 in a manor house in Lincolnshire, England. He formulated laws of motion and gravitation. These laws are math formulas that explain how objects move when a force acts on them. Newton's Principia formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that dominated scientists' view of the physical universe for the next three centuries.

Experiment & Evaluate Thursdays!!
This is great experiment or science fair project, to par with our module on features located within the unit on the Earth which discusses weathering and so much more. This experiment provides so much to learn and yet is so easy to do. And don't even get us started on how fun it is!!
Check out the details below and feel free to share your results with us.
This science fair project highlights weathering, the breaking down of rock, by moving water. Students might find it hard to believe that something as simple as

Happy Birthday!!
Louis Paul Cailletet born September 21, 1832 was a French physicist and inventor. In an effort to determine the cause of accidents that occurred while tempering incompletely forged iron, Cailletet found that heating the iron put it in a highly unstable state, with gases dissolved in it. He then analyzed the gases from blast furnaces, which helped him understand the role of heat in the changes of states (phases) of metals. This brought him to the work of liquefying the various gases. In 1877 Cailletet succeeded in producing droplets of liquid oxygen.

Experiment & Evaluate Thursdays!!!!
Is it possible to stab a potato with a drinking straw? Find out with this fun science experiment for kids that shows how air pressure can be used in surprising ways. Be sure to share your results with us.
What you'll need:Stiff plastic drinking straws & A raw potato
Instructions:
Hold a plastic drinking straw by it sides (without covering the hole at the top) and try quickly stabbing the potato, what happens?
Repeat the experiment with a new straw but this time place your thumb over the top, covering the hole.
What's happening?
Placing your thumb over the hole at the top of the straw improves your ability to pierce the potato skin and push the straw deep into the potato. The first time you tried the experiment you may have only pierced the potato a small amount, so why are you more successful on the second attempt?
Covering the top of the straw with your thumb traps the air inside, forcing it to compress as you stab the straw through the potato skin. This makes the straw strong enough to pierce the potato, unlike the first attempt where the air is pushed out of the straw.

Here is fun way to start out the week.. Did you know it is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!! Arr Matey Land Ho.. Which provides a great way to introduce the module on the earth's Features found in the Earth/Space science book within the Earth unit.
Mountains, canyons, lakes, and rivers are some of Earth’s features. In this Science4Us module students discover how weathering and erosion change Earth’s

Your little scientists will love this experiment..
Homemade Slime!!~ You and your little learners will be making homemade slime, which will teach them all about changes in matter. Be sure to reference our physical science book, under the changes in matter module within the matter unit.
Click the image below for all the details and Remember to give us your feedback on how it went and include pictures if you got them!!!

This one is real fun and clean up is simple just eat it..LOL.
Edible Habitats & Plant Life! ~ Students will build an edible model to showcase the different types of animal habitats. This will go very nicely with our module on Habitats within the Life science book under the balance in nature unit.
