Today we learned about some of the science tools we will use throughout this year. Some of the tools that were introduced to us today were a graduated cylinder, test tube, beaker, and a bunson burner. We also saw a hot plate and Mr. Sherman showed us how hot it was by pouring water on it, which was super cool.
Mr. Sherman also taught us how to make a post on our science blog, which is what we are currently doing. I think that scribe posting will be a lot of fun this year and I'm looking foward to hearing everyone's thoughts and ideas about science class.
Oh....one other thing we did today was learn how to make conversions in the metric system. For example, Mr. Sherman taught us that 1 g = 1,000 mg. That's just one example, he taught us several others and he's so COOL!
