Mrs. Harvell's eighth grade science students spent the week of October 17th learning science vocabulary pertaining to the properties of matter through two hands-on experiments.

In the first experiment, students watched ink molecules of Sharpies become soluble to alcohol and then spread across the materials.  The results of this experiment were turned into curtains now decorating Mrs. Harvell's classroom.

Students compared viscosity of vegetable oil to glycerine in the second experiment.

By the end of the week, students had a more in-depth understanding of the science terms they had been studying. Learning mission accomplished! Submitted by Kristen Rhodes.
