Fifth graders enjoyed an electricity lab today in LEAP! We explored positive and negative charges using batteries and motors. Students learned the basic mechanics of using the battery as a power source and the ions and charges used to create power. The electricity lab today will lay the foundation of understanding power in order to complete our next project, where we will be building wiggle bots!
We had a fantastic time on our field trip! We visited the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News. We attended a special program for our class that was all about life in the Chesapeake Bay. We got to touch some sea creatures, view water samples through a microscope, and many other fun activities! It was a great day with lots of hands-on fun! Many of the students got to see an up close view of living things we have been studying through our Google slides projects!
