Twas the week before break...

So, based on the title of this post, my overall feeling towards this week is around this work: survival.  Today my generally adorable, polite, and organized students were only a bit shy of a mess.  "Wait---what did you say?"  "What are we doing?" "Where is that paper?" "How do I write that?" followed literally everything I said.  No lie, we started by opening up to the lab we did Friday.  "Lab?" "Where?" "I'm confused" and my favorite, "We had school on Friday?"

Ahhhh!  So, the rest of the week we are taking a break from the normal and the new concepts and having just plain FUN with science.  Each day (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) I am going to set up seven science based stations with general household items.  Tomorrow is focused around the theme of gravity and air pressure.  More posts to come on how it goes! :)

Happy week ahead!
