Energy Rotation # 6… Biomass with Ms. Wislang

Today, our class learned all about biomass with Mrs. Wislang. First of all, the kids learned what biomass actually means. Ask your child the answer for that! Then they learned how we can take plant and animal waste biomass and use it as an energy source to give us power. One way of learning this […]

Energy Rotation # 1 – Wind Energy Blows into town…

Our class was “blown into” a Thursday investigatation of wind energy… We brainstormed different uses of wind and how it helps us do things and even tried out a quiz of our prior knowledge. Thinking of wind as a recipe, we then thought about the “ingredients” of wind… we all know what wind is like, but what exactly […]

Energy Rotations # 3… Solar Energy with Ms. Costa !!

In learning more about solar energy, the Smartians visited Ms. Costa’s class to explore the site www.solarforward.com/solarkids/ . We learned more about what solar power is and that it’s a clean energy source because it doesn’t pollute the environment. Then we had a chance to see the effects of the sun through making smores. But, […]

Energy Rotations # 5… Fossil Fuels vs. renewable sources with Mrs. Zulberti

Renewable or Non-Renewable: that is the question….that kicked off a packed session of exploring non-renewable fossil fuels.  After brainstorming meaning and classifying energy sources, students quickly got down to the nitty gritty of fossil fuels.  Students saw non-renewable resources in action as we used ‘energy’ (baking powder and vinegar) to light up a light bulb […]
