Students added the final feature to their City Blueprints: Parks and Recreation; they also added a legend. A legend is included with a map to unlock it. It gives you the information needed for the map to make sense. Maps often use symbols or colors to represent things, and the map key explains what they mean. ... Symbols in the key might be pictures or icons that represent different things on the map.
Students started a new Scientific inquiry: Tomatosphere
THE SEED INVESTIGATION QUESTION
Will the tomatoes grow the same in space as they do on earth?
In the Seed Investigation, students are investigating the germination rates of tomato seeds that have been to space (or exposed to space-like conditions) with seeds that have remained on Earth.
One package of seeds is a “control” (untreated) group and the other is the "experimental" (treated) group.
The “experimental” seeds spent almost approximately 30 days on the International Space Station in June/July 2017.
The primary objective of the Seed Investigation is to determine the number of seeds that germinate compared to the number planted for each of the two types of seeds (treated and untreated).
Room 9 & 11 will be sharing their learning every Friday.
