Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful evening. In this week’s blog, Ms.Chris and I have asked a student to share what the students did this past Thursday in Science!

“This week we had our first science lab, and we learned how to use a triple beam balance. Each group had three different objects: a large metal hooked cube, a rectangular prism, and a small cube. However, in each group, the objects were made out of different materials. We figured out the mass of each object using the balance. Then, we answered the questions on how much they weighed.

Next, we measured an empty beaker, then filled the beaker with 50 milliliters of water, and measured that. After that, we had to figure out how much the water weighed, and how much 1 milliliter of water weighed by subtracting the mass of the empty beaker from the mass of the full beaker and dividing the result by fifty. 

Next, we measured salt. We had to put an eyeglass on the scale and measured it, then we had to set the scale to five more grams, and put the salt on, we had to keep adding more salt, or taking away salt until the scale leveled out, which means that we had five grams of salt. We then filled out a sheet of paper with lots of questions.”

Here’s to many more experiments that help us answer many more questions!
