Modeling Erosion

Here are some pictures from our Modeling Erosion Lab. Students are trying to figure our how water can erode soil. We look used sand, humus, and a combination of the two. There was a lot of variation in the data depending how students set their experiment up, but that was important for the students to see, since there is a great deal of variety with erosion in real life too. Things such as soil type, temperature, soil depth, location, etc., can all effect how the soil erodes.

Bullying Is Out of Control!

This is a reminder to students, parents, teachers, and administration that bullying is an issue in schools all over the world. However, I would like to remind everyone that it is not something that can and will be tolerated in my classroom. Please speak with me, or another adult if bullying seems to be an issue at our school.
