Today, we talked about Pluto and why Astronomers stopped classifying it as a planet and started classifying it as a dwarf planet. Students then wrote whether they agreed with the decision to reclassify Pluto. Next, we began talking about characteristics of the other planets and students began identifying planets from postcards written by fictional people.
We were to begin video taping commercials today, unfortunately, the students were not able to handle the responsibility and we will not finish this project.
Students were NWEA testing for most of the period. We did take some notes about the Law of Conservation on Mass and balancing chemical equations.
