So with all of the various dead plant parts, along with soil from outside and water (from both Lake MI and the Chicago River), students are setting up their dead stuff jars to see what happens when we control all the variables except one!
We've got experiments going on in the light, the dark, the heat, the fridge, the natural light, the artificial light, in lake water, in no water, in river water, in soil, not in soil....
You name it, we've got it going on in our classroom!
We agreed to use the scale to measure if anything gets in or out...! YAY 5th Grade!
