The Study of Matter at Gardiners Ave.
This month the fifth grade students were actively engaged in science lessons that centered on the study of matter. Through many hands on activities in the NYS Mystery Matter science kits, the students gained an understanding of molecular structure, atoms, phases of matter, physical changes and chemical changes. As a culminating activity the students in Mr. Centonze's and Ms. Tripp's class made butter from scratch. This activity deepened the students understanding of changes in matter.
