EnergyFor the past five weeks, second graders in Room 307 have been learning all about energy! They have been working with Mr. Tripp, our guest science teacher, to conduct experiments and make observations related to energy in our world and energy conservation in our environment. Second graders have studied how coal was formed and created a hands on example using playdough and sandpaper. Then, they also discovered how coal is now a limited resource in our earth by collecting beans in the classroom and realizing that the resource is finite! Then, they conducted experiments with solar panels and wind energy to see how these technologies work! For their last week, students will be invited to the Cambridge district challenge of energy conservation in our schools. A big thank you to Mr. Tripp for working with Room 307!
