Sag Harbor Elementary School third-graders in Mr. Christopher Martin’s class have been busy exploring a variety of scientific topics as part of their curriculum.
In recent weeks, they learned about states of matter in the school’s science lab by researching plasma and the elements necessary to create it. Students’ curiosity was peeked by forming hypotheses and watching simple experiments in electromagnetism and fluid viscosity. Additionally, the students have started a new unit on simple machines where they are learning about inclined planes and have constructed an elaborate marble run.
“For the marble run project, the students succeeded as builders, evidence-based thinkers and artists,” Martin said. “Their appetite for science and experimentation continues to gain momentum in the classroom.”
