  • Learned how to set mousetrap cars and hypothesized about the distance cars will travel
  • Had a fabulously successful bake sale to support the fall trip.  Thank you RWS community!


  • Continued to investigate chemical reaction indicators (precipitate formation, color change, property change, temperature change, gas production)
  • Investigated acids and bases by testing mystery samples and using the pH scale to figure out what each sample was
