|Global Warming Unit to begin 1/2/06|
| So, snooping around the science web site over the holidays hoping to find out what we're going to study next? Well, we're going to go back and pick up the "Global Warming" unit that we didn't have time to complete in November. Check out the Science Homework calendar for links to the various study guides and practice tests on "Global Warming."
We'll watch a series of videos in class, discuss topics of interest and wind up with at test on Thursday, January 12th. If that conflicts with the "Wax Museum" we'll adjust the test date forward or back a day or so.
Immediately after completing the "Global Warming" unit, we launch into physics. The big project for 3rd quarter is the "Balloon Popper." Check out the Science web site links for the popper. You could get a head start over the holidays by collecting materials -- especially the "back board."

|Actually, it's not really confusing. Just read through the description, take a look at the picture galleries, and then watch the videos. You'll find out exactly what a "Balloon Popper" is and how it works. We'll talk about it Monday in class.|

Ah yes, Balloon Poppers. That particular project took quite a bit of time to put together -- almost as much time as Mr.Tabb's year long project.
Yet, this is THE most valuable science assignment grade wise. In theory you can gain an infinite amount of points on a huge grade.
In other words.......
It can save your grade! (Or give it even more points)
