Physical Science Lemonade Lab and Alien Juice Web Activity


Today I enjoyed have Coach Nichols’ Physical Science classes in for a joint activity. Half the students completed a study in concentration level, solutes, and solvents in the Lemonade Lab. The other half worked in the computer lab on a Alien Juice web activity. Then, students switched to participate in the other activity. Thanks for your great behavior and those funny sour faces ;)!
