Children learned about Forestville’s soil type and how it affects percolation, calculated dimensions of the actual 8-inch pipe that will be installed, read and interpreted maps and blueprints, used a spreadsheet to analyze sample data, estimated the size of the new library, observed energy use and calculated the costs of using different light bulb types. Along the way children filled out a Passport to Prizes, excitedly finding the answers to over 10 question on real-world, place-based, relevant science and math.
It’s never too late to learn! Even if you missed the Science Night, you can still download the Passport to Prizes – Do More Win More Worksheet. Children are welcome to work on the questions at home and either post answers on iSchool’s Facebook page or turn them in to the Forestville Office. For each question answered, children will receive one raffle entry to win a Science Kit. Every child who finishes the worksheet correctly will have his/her name announced on Forestvision.
