Chemical Reactions, Inertia, and Sound Energy
Fifth grade students were busy this past winter learning about chemical reactions, inertia, and sound energy. They made play dough to learn about chemical reactions. The fun continued when students went into creative mode and made sculptures. Inertia became exciting when students tried to pull an index card stacked with cubes from the top of an open jar. Next, they applied their knowledge of sound energy by creating their own musical instruments and demonstrating high and low pitches. Check out their video. Who thought science could be so exciting?
