ACChaos (Austin Community College Hands-on School) came to visit. This organization consisted of six ACC physic professors who truly interacted well with the fifth graders. They visited our class and brought with them over 70 mini labs. The labs included results and conclusions as well. Besides being fun, these activities helped students learn in a way that will stick with them the rest of their lives. ACChaos did an outstanding job of working with students, teaching and creating enthusiasm for science. Avery exclaimed, "i thought that that day in science was the best day ever. Everything was so cool, and it was a really fun way to learn new things.'' Makenzie explained, " I thought that the hands-on school was really fun and opened a whole new world into science for the 5th graders. I honestly learned so much and got to see so many new things that I had never heard of, like a rock that floats in the water, no trick just plain old science. I hope the fourth graders next year get to enjoy a science year with my favorite teacher Mr. Matus." Chelsea said, " It was so very cool to see the science people come by. I thought that science was very lame at first but now I know that science can be used for mysteries and I love mysteries ."
I hope you enjoy learning how the garden changes throughout the school year.
