For homework, students need to work on their Kahn Academy accounts for at least 30 minutes. I will be checking on their progress each day. If working on a computer is an issue, please contact me. I mainly would like students to work on math for at least 30 minutes. Students should also be reading for at least 30 minutes as well.
I have also been in contact with a few representatives from NASA and ScienceStarter, a website that promotes citizen science. They asked us if we were interested in a citizen science project they were promoting. Our job is to measure soil water content and upload the information to NASA. We are in need of a few items for this project:
- Old hot pads or oven mitts
- Empty, clean metal cans such as cat food cans, tuna cans, or pineapple cans
- A role of plastic wrap
- 3 plastic liter bottles
