Well, we just began our Life Science study!!!! First, we are looking at where life came from! We had to explain some of Earth's history using a scale model. Grace P. and I made a whiteboard time lapse. Here it is!
We are currently in the process of testing certain subjects we got to choose. I am studying thehow the kicking foot affects distance and height of a kicked soccer ball. Will update as the project goes along!!!
For science, we have been glancing over the periodic table and electrons along with how organization is everywhere. In science today, we had a lab set up and we differentiated acids from bases and neutrals. We would find a substance and add cabbage juice to it and see where the substance would fit on the pH scale depending on the color. FUN!!!
In class for math, we have been working on surface area and volume of objects. We are identifying the equations for certain shapes: prisms, triangles, regular polygons, and the Pythagoriam theorem: a squared + b squared = c squared.

In Ms. B's class we are designing bridges and then testing them to see who has the best weight-held-ratio. This is Zoe and I's bridge design digitally. This design costs $361,884.6 which is pretty good!!!! Oh, and my awesome partner is Zoe!!!
