Mr. Smith’s Science Lab

Smith's students playing in the rain

Mr. Smith and his 1A Environmental Science class spent Wednesday morning in the rain “playing with water.”  They were testing “how energy flows through an ecosystem,” or as Smith called it,The Bucket Lab. The students filled up buckets of water and placed them in a straight line about 15 feet apart going up the road behind the kitchen. His students then took cups and scooped out water from the first bucket and poured it into the second bucket about half way up the hill and so on

until all of the water from the bucket at the bottom of the hill was in the bucket at the top.
