Today's Quote:


Recap:

We finished the review of basic atomic structures and history of the atom in 8th grade classes and began introducing the Periodic table of elements. In 7th grade classes we finished our review of cellular structure and the organelles. Our chicken eggs came in and are patiently waiting to go into the incubator.

Brain Bender:

Professor Bumble, who is getting on in years, is growing absent minded. On the way to work one day, he went through a red light and turned down a one way street in the wrong direction. A police officer observed the entire scene but did nothing about it. How could professor Bumble get away with such behavior?

There's something odd about my first period!
