Science Literacy Week: Making Craters Webinar

On Tuesday September the 18th Roosevelt kicked off Science Literacy week by participating along with other SD 52 schools in a Making Craters Webinar. Madame Stevenson’s 4/5 class combined forces with Mrs. Gamble’s 4/5 class to learn about meteoric impacts on planets by listening to planetary scientist Dr. Oz. Students then worked in groups planning their experiments using the scientific method and then recreated the impacts caused by meteors on planetary surfaces using flour, cocoa powder, measuring equipment as well as spheres of all shapes, sizes and weights. The two classes really enjoyed being part of the learning together. Big thanks goes out to Mr. Peter Scott for organizing the event as well as supplying the materials.
