Today's Quote:





Recap:

Seventh-grade classes dissected away the muscles fro the humerus of the chicken wing and I think we're going to call it done. The wings are deteriorating faster than I anticipated. Sixth graders began taking notes about plate tectonics and we started in on our continental movement lab. Additionally, I told them that Hobby Lobby has the model rockets we will need for our final project in class. They have a limited supply so I recommended they get them as soon as possible. I will provide the rocket motors. If they already have a rocket at home, they have previously built, they can use it. Eight graders finished up their STEM locator college survey so I could get them in the mail.



Brain Bender:

"It was a rather different trip, " recounted Professor Quantum. "For a month our tour group traveled around Europe viewing the sights and showing our finds. The strange thing is that we had a man traveling with us who never saw a thing the whole trip. Even the children in our group would never call this man daddy. " Who was he?
