Middle School Science Teacher

Posted on March 29, 2006  Comments (1)

The Mrs. Frizzle is an wonderful blog following the adventures of a science teacher in a small public middle school in the Bronx.

Her recent post, 250,000 liters, is an enjoyable read:

I taught one of my favorite lessons today. I gave each group of kids two metersticks, a box of markers, and a piece of chart paper, and they had to measure/estimate the volume of the classroom in liters.

as they lined up to leave the classroom at the end of the period, a discussion began about whether we could really seal off the classroom and fill it with soda.

Apparently, during PE class, one of the girls claimed/joked that her shot did not go into the hoop due to the Coriolis effect. Awesome. Anything to create really geeky kids who will over-apply science concepts to explain away their lack of athletic prowess!

Great reading.
