October 28: Ghost stories and the scientific method

Today I handed back the results from the CSA test and some kids were a little dismayed by their score.  I made them an offer (which they promptly took me up on) to make our lab form yesterday a summative grade to help boost their score.  So, after careful consideration I decided to give the classes 10 summative grade points for the chemical/physical change lab when it’s completed and handed in.  We didn’t have time to go over the guided reading today but I’ll get to that next week.  We also told some ghost stories in class and talked about paranormal activity and watched a video on how science goes through a peer review process from the Daily Show.  I love the Daily Show and it’s a rarity that I can show something that applies to science or my class.  Next week we’ll get into measuring matter and more lab activities.
