The HGES Library Media Center now has self check in! Students and staff will now be able to check in all borrowed materials and place the checked in material on the check in cart.This new system has led to a much more efficient and streamlined check in process. There are easy to follow directions at the check in station!

Physical and Chemical Changes

Students explored physical and chemical properties and physical and chemical changes (Science goal 5.P.2.2) using the following experiments:

*Physical properties of a cookie: Students observed the properties of their cookie, such as color, texture, shape, and state of matter
*Oobleck: see these directions (physical change - state of matter)
*Wooly booger: see these directions (chemical change - heat released, color change, rust)
*elephant toothpaste: I shared this video
A little messy, but the students loved it and were able to identify physical and chemical changes.
