CMS students have fun with science

Campbellsville Middle School fifth-graders recently had fun conducting several science experiments.

 

In Donna White’s class, students visited several stations to learn science concepts pertaining to physical and chemical changes.

 

At one station, students determined the volume of three objects by putting them under water.

 

Students learned about mass at another station, by measuring several objects and then drawing conclusions about how physical changes can impact the mass of an object.

 

At another station, students put their hands inside a box to see if the can identify an object by simply feeling the size, shape and texture.

 

At the melting point station, students melted several butterscotch, chocolate and peanut butter chips to see the difference in the temperature it takes to melt them.

 

And at the last station, students calculated the density and buoyancy of several objects.
