Middle School Science – May

May brings about fungi and cell phone cases. We are “growing” some material that will help us understand how organic matter is reused and recycled. Additional “green” materials will be incorporated on the cases, as we build a more eco-sensitive product. After we will continue the investigation into identifying changes and forms of matter. Join […]

Middle School Science – March

We are just wrapping up our Light Waves mini-project “A picture is worth a thousand words”. Middle school students incorporated their understanding of how light waves behave into a digital photograph that they captured. Artistic components were included and at curriculum celebration we hope to display and run an art exhibit/competition. Stay tuned! In March […]

Middle School Science – February

Sound, Lights, Wave Action! In the middle school classrooms we are working with waves and how we interact with them on a daily basis. We will be taking a look at both sound and light waves to help us understand how they are similar and different. Each will result in a small project to demonstrate […]

Middle School Science – January

Lights, Sound, Action! The middle school students are moving towards understanding and manipulating how “waves” work in the new year. Light and sound waves are interesting examples of science in nature as well as how the body interprets those signals through important organs. We will take a field trip opportunity to attend a Physics Demo […]

Middle School Science

Project Move! The middle school students are heavily involved with their complex machines that they’ve constructed, and are vigorously testing the reliability of completing their proposed task. We are collecting data of the forces involved with each simple machine, as well as the results of the trials we are putting it through. That data will […]

Middle School Science – November

MOVE! In the middle school science classrooms, we just finished up designing and drawing plans for a complex/compound machine that each student will create to complete a task. Next week we plan to prototype many different simple machine ideas to see if our designs will work, and continue to learn and test how mechanical advantages […]

Middle School Science

Welcome to a new year of middle school science! We start off every year focusing on the nature of science and what kinds of attitudes, skills, and knowledge we need to be effective scientists. This year’s theme is “How Things Work” and our first unit deals with the study of movement, forces, and energy. Six […]

Butterfly in the sky

As part of the final unit for “Journeys” this year, the middle school students are well on their way to raise Monarch butterflies from larvaes we’ve received from Monarch Watch. We hope that we can contribute to the repopulation of these wonderful creatures, as well as monitoring our own environment here at Honey Creek/WISD. We’ve […]
