Our grade was the first Box Top winners of this school year. We turned in Box Tops to raise money for our school. Our school collected 3,290 Box Tops in September and the beginning of October. Our grade alone collected 614 Box Tops. Each Box Top is worth ten cents. The grade who turned in the most Box Tops won a Dunkin' Donuts party. Box Tops can be found on many foods and products.
We are going to keep collecting Box Tops so we can earn another Dunkin' Donuts party.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today we all wore pink to school. We each donated a $1 (or more) to Women Supporting Women. This organization helps women and men during their rough times. Women Supporting Women can give tips, advice, support, and confidence to those in need.
Our science experiment was really fun. We used washers to measure different liquids on a scale. The liquids we measured were cooking oil, glycerin, plain water, and alcohol. We learned that glycerin has the most density out of these liquids. Density is how close or spread out molecules are in a substance. The molecules that were spread out more, weighed less. So, they had less density.
For fun, we measured the density of soapy water. We learned that soap does not effect the amount of density in plain water.
