In preparation for the upcoming CCSS Resources ebook that will be on Teachers Pay Teachers for a Back to School Week special, I have created an Exit Ticket FREEBIE: Masses of Gases. Click on the image above and head over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store to download it for free, along with some tips and tricks and a teacher's explanation.
In other news, I have been doing a lot of traveling and the madness isn't over yet. We headed down to the Texas coast to celebrate July 4th with family. (Please excuse the crazy poses....my 4 year old is the posing QUEEN, so we often join in on the fun just to make her look less ridiculous.)
We were fortunate enough to have a view of the bay all day long. Being the nerdy scientists that we are, we had to investigate a few of the jellyfish that were floating EVERYWHERE on the edge of the beach. With the help of a few sticks and boards, we brought them to shore and carefully checked them out. (Note: only 2 jellyfish were harmed in this investigation.)
And the Fourth of July just wouldn't be complete without fireworks. Across the bay we could see 3 different firework displays...AWESOME. Here is a pic of the science behind firework colors. My personal favorites are the big, shimmery white ones.
Very soon, I will no longer be on land. This will be my 4th cruise, but the 1st cruise for my daughters. I can't wait to see the looks on their faces when they see how big these ships really are. I truly don't think they realize. For someone who loves to travel, see new places and try new things, but absolutely HATES driving, this is the best way to travel. (In case you didn't get that, I was describing myself.)
So, I may be "off the grid" for awhile, but as soon as I get back, I will share some pics and adventures we had.
Hope you are all having a relaxing summer. I am already starting to think about next summer's vacay...any ideas?
