  • Jodan in the Ocala Star Banner (11/14/19)

    Jodan

    Jodan Nieves, 10, left protects his candle from the wind as his sister Jamilet Nieves, 6, right, does the same near the three crosses. Jamilet was a classmate of Katalaya Nunez, 7, who was killed last Thursday in a triple fatal crash. About 200 family and friends attended a candle light vigil Wednesday night, November 13, 2019 near the location where the crash happened in Belleview. Stephen Lynn, 48, of Ocala, was driving a Ford F-350 on Thursday November 7, 2019 when he T-boned a vehicle driven by Emilio A. Nunez, 71, of Summerfield. His two young granddaughters, Nevaeh Nunez, 9, and Katalaya Nunez, 7, also of Summerfield, were also in the vehicle. All three were killed in the accident when their SUV was hit at the intersection of CR 484 and Southeast 36th Avenue by Lynn, Florida Highway Patrol troopers said. The two children attended Belleview-Santos Elementary School. Lynn was charged with three counts of DUI manslaughter, DUI, and DUI with property damage. [Doug Engle/Ocala Star-Banner]

  • Newton's 3rd Law!

    Newton's 3rd Law

     

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction... 

    Blow air into a balloon and that air pushes hard against the inside of the balloon.  The balloon then pushes almost as hard back against the air--spewing out the air and sending the balloon traveling forward like a rocket!  Check it all out by clicking the link below to see the kids in this "Hat Day" Science video:

  • Lava Lamps...

    Posted by Harry Williams on 10/2/2019 3:15:00 PM

    In our study of Matter and Mixtures, an interesting version of a mixture is the old school Lava Lamp (the first one I ever saw was bought by my sister in 1968).  I'll be sending home a paper from which the students can make a "home version" of a lava lamp for extra credit, but some students had never seen one!

     

    Consider that problem solved:
