Liquid Level Investigation
Students worked in pairs to observe what happens to liquid as it slowly tips in a closed bottle. We learned that the surface of liquid is level with respect to the ground.
Liquids in Containers Investigation
The class worked with a partner to pour one full small vial of water into each container. Then they drew a line on each picture showing the level of the water. Students answered questions during the investigation. What is the shape of the water in the bottle? In the cup? In the flat container? In the large vial? Does each container have the same amount of water in it? Which container looks like it has the most water in it? Why?

Elise Broach, author of Masterpiece, and many other children’s books visited us today. She talked about where she gets the inspiration for her stories, how long it takes to write them, the editing process, and how the illustrator matched her pictures with Mrs. Broach’s story. We enjoyed her visit!

Students are learning that everything on earth is either solid, liquid, or gas. During our investigations, students explored the properties of solids. Things we know about objects by looking at them or feeling them are called properties.
This week the class became engineers during the Tower Challenge. Some scientists are engineers. Engineers use what they know about the properties of solids, liquids, or gases to build useful things.
