Middle School Science News: November 2012

The middle school is getting our “hands wet and dirty” with the “Earth Rocks!” unit by continuing to journey through our watersheds. We will continue this towards the middle of this month and then followup with a project on the Hawaiian Islands as our real-life example. We successfully took a journey to our local watershed, the Huron River, at Island Park and learned about water quality testing with help from our community partners at the Huron River Watershed Council at the end of October. This month, we will be working to use the knowledge we gained from our lab activities in porosity and permeability, regarding the water cycle, and Earth processes and apply them to the Hawaiian Islands. Although we can’t take a physical field trip to Hawaii, we will simulate experiences that will help students to learn more about how the “Earth Rocks!”
