Students in Mrs. James' 6th grade science classes are learning about science investigations this week. They are working together to gather evidence and examine the data to develop conclusions.

Starting off Right!

Students in Ms. Funneman's classes explored identifying parts of a scientific investigation by completing a lab about surface tension and cohesion. The investigation had the students use a control and a "testing liquid" to test how many drops of water a penny could hold. Once they completed this investigation, they were able to identify the different components of the scientific investigation.
