The 5th graders in 5F and 5T began their new mixtures and solutions unit. The students started by first observing three different solid materials. Next, they added water to the solid materials and made observations of the mixtures made. Students then brainstormed ways to separate the mixtures, and subsequently used screens and filters for the separation process. Finally, for the solution mixture that did not separate by means of screens or filters, the students used the process of evaporation. They are excited to observe their results!

In celebration of the holiday season, families of 5F donated items to be sent to US soldiers overseas for the holidays. Students brought in the variety of donated items to school and then boxed the items in separate care packages. Included in the boxes were student-made holiday cards and individual letters written to troops.
