Jeff Gilbert from CMP came to visit us to talk about ice storms. He presented a slide show where he showed the beauty of an ice storm and the damage that they can cause. He helped to educate us about ice storm safety and involved the students in his presentation. The students got a look at the gear that needs to be worn by a CMP worker and the reasons why. They also got to investigate the tools used. Each left with a CMP hardhat and an appreciation for the power of ice. Thank you Mr. Gilbert for talking time out of your day to teach our children some valuable information!
During this week we also learned the vocabulary of ice and we performed some experiments to learn about it in a more hand-on way. One experiment was creating frost on the outside of a tin can. Another experiment from this week was trying to melt a baggie of ice faster than the other groups could! Everyone had a great time and walked away with a better understanding of ice!
