The grade 9 science class began their unit on electricity this week. They learned the three different methods used to charge objects, the electrostatic series, and real-world applications of static electricity. The students experienced electricity in action as they worked with electrostatic generators and pith ball electroscopes.
The grade 9 geography students began growing plants using soil that was produced in a vermicomposter over the summer. They learned how to meet the needs of the plants by watering them regularly, monitoring the temperature, and ensuring that they received enough sunlight. The first seeds are already sprouting!
