We have three 6th grade Science classes and two 8th grade Science classes blogging here from the Pacific Northwest in Chimacum, WA! Sixth graders are learning a bit about Mt Saint Helens, environmental science through fresh water ecology, and physical science this year. Eighth graders are learning about life science this year. Please join us as we learn Science by exploring our world.

Polyacrylate Crystals Experiment
Heidi and I created an experiment with polyacrylate crystals, known as Orbies. We wanted to see which liquid they would grow biggest in. We chose to put polyacrylate crystals in orange juice, salt water, carbonated water, sugar water and yeast water. We predicted that the orbits would grow very large in every liquid but the orange juice. We will check for results every day.
