I hope you're all enjoying this "warm" weekend after all the cold temps we've had. Here's a quick update to let you know what's been happening in Room 5.
On Friday, we had the Acton Discovery Museum come to Loker School thanks to the PTO. This presentation supported our unit on solids, liquids and gases. We have been learning how these three states of matter change. On Friday, we had the opportunity to see liquid nitrogen change a banana into a hammer (or make it hard enough to hammer a nail into wood). We saw some dry ice but couldn't touch it. Ask your child what happens to a balloon when a piece of dry ice is put into it or what happens when a piece of dry ice is placed in a container with a lid on it. These are only a few of the fun and exciting things we saw.
Here are a few pictures from our day.
