Science 9 – May 27
The class was working through the Hertzsprung-Russel diagram and classifying stars. We had to come back to this a little bit because the previous week we did a field trip to the MacMillan Space Center. Above you can see differing quality of work.
Science 9 – May 21
Today the students were supposed to learn about different types of stars and I had planned for them to learn about the Hertzsprugn-Russel diagram. Most kids were content to methodically work through the sketch activity and I was ok with that. The grade 9 students are in their “calming down” phase that I’ve seen happen after April. They are getting more mature and becoming better students. It’s a welcomed relief.
