Today was full of fun, as usual. In reading this morning we practiced making text-to-self connections. We picked the books that interested us and then thought about how they connected to our own lives, memories, and experiences.
Then we heard from the Reporter of the Week! Lily shared a very interesting and current article all about the recent snowfall. We really learned how snow affects our lives! The line to the gondola in Aspen last week stretched all the way to the street. The side country is particularly dangerous with avalanches right now after all the new snowfall. And compared to last year Snowmass has 39 more inches of snow (107 vs. 146). Good thing we had two snow days!
Finally, we heard from the Scientist of the Week. Lee taught us how to make a cloud in a bottle. As usual, we made some hypotheses first. We knew you had to mix some materials together so we thought it would have to be either: (a) water and air; (b) oil and air; (c) vinegar and air.
This experiment can be tried at home, but only under adult supervision. Warning: the cap of the bottle FLEW off at high speeds!
