Great first day of school! It was so nice to meet all of the new 8th graders and get our science year off and running. In class students made ball and stick models of methane, a flammable gas, and then Mr. Powell made soap bubbles filled with methane. Students made some predictions about the behavior and properties of the methane bubbles and after a demonstration learned that they are highly flammable! We also covered some class guidelines and procedures. Please BRING A COMPOSITION BOOK to class tomorrow.
I'm very excited to start a new school year with all of you. We have a lot of fun and exciting learning planned. It's my hope that you become very familiar with this website, because it will be where we do a lot of our work this year. Check it daily for updates (and even some competitions!). Also, I hope you take a moment to subscribe to my youtube channel Mr. Powell Science to stay up to date on videos from class.
Things you should bring to class every day are a composition notebook (which will stay in the classroom), a glue stick, scissors, and colored pencils.
Mr. Powell is an 8th grade Science Teacher in Western Colorado.
