Even Block Schedule. Marie Curie reading passage, time to work on the chemistry project, and making GLUEP mini lab.
A nice day. The students were tolerant of the long reading passage (which was a pleasant surprise) and then LOVED adding the 50% glue in water mix to 10% borax solution making a slimy polymer that one lab calls GLUEP (glue polymer).
TO add to the story of Marie discovering Polonium and Radium I get glow sticks and then cut them open and dump them into small test tubes and hen hang them on my clip board as I walk around the room reading.
Honors sci took the test today.
My school website has the story I read, A glowing Discovery, on the Teachers link off the main page as well as my power point supplement.
I hope this helps.
Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!
It’s not Magic, It’s Science!
