Mr. Teske Attends Science 7
“Absolutely, YES!!” That was my answer to Mrs. Palomaki when she asked if I would like to join her Science 7 class. She had informed me that the class was in the middle of the Heat and Temperature unit and they would be doing an experiment that day.
There was no way I was going to turn that invitation down. So I went to the class and I had a blast! Mrs. Palomaki began the class with a brief explanation of the activity, and based on their knowledge of this topic already, she had the students write a prediction on their lab write-ups as to what was going to happen. Of course, I had to make my own prediction as well. Then, the students and I anxiously watched to see if our predictions were correct as Mrs. Palomaki demonstrated the experiment. After the experiment was completed, Mrs. Palomaki asked if I wanted to do the experiment. Once again, my response was, “Absolutely, YES!!” So I did and it was awesome!
The fun didn’t end there. Mrs. Palomaki explained that she had a couple stations set up for the students to each perform the experiment. Watching the students engaged in the activity, and discussing the activity with students was a real joy for me. Thank you to Mrs. Palomaki’s Science 7 class for including me in your class that day.
About the picture:
The experiment… I did get other pics of me with the students in the class, but they all showed the end result of the experiment, so I couldn’t use those. The Oilers jersey… it just so happened that I had my Oilers jersey at school that day and other proud Oilers fans, such as Mr. Hatch, were wearing their jerseys and suggested I should put mine on. I will never turn an invite like that down either, so my response was… you guessed it, “Absolutely, YES!!”
