collage of science students

5th grade scientists in Mrs. Bon's class spent some time testing the properties of several objects. They tested the mass with a triple beam, looked at the physical state, checked for magnetism, tested for electrical conductivity, used water to check for solubility, and determined relative density by watching it float or sink. These students were learning so many skills that will transfer to their future science classes, and maybe into their future career.   Classifying matter really matters!
