Guys, this is pretty cool.

New NASA rover on its way to Mars

Check this out. The new NASA Mars rover will travel 9 months in space, and make an spectacular landing in Mars. You want to see this video.

Density

One more resource to reinforce the concept of density.

 

Volume and Density

Cool video cartoon that will give you examples on volume and density. Fun! I hope you like it. Let me know in the comments!

Buoyancy

Another video demonstrating buoyancy, now with references to density, as we saw in class.

1º ESO Visits granja-escuela Kiriko

Well, yesterday, Thursday, November 17th, we went for a day visit to the granja-escuela Kiriko for the entire day. We had a fabulous day, sunny from beginning to end. Over there, we observed and learned about the need to use resources adequately so that next generations may find a healthy planet when we are gone.

We took pictures!

Physical Properties of Matter

Hey guys, watch this video to learn about physical properties of Matter with visual examples. I think you will find it useful.

Measuring Matter

Here is a visual presentation to show you the different instruments you can use to measure matter in various forms.

How do you convert different units?

If you need help converting units (it´s a question of Math…) this tutorial may help you. Here you go:

The Principle of Buoyancy

When will objects float and when will they sink? Learn how buoyancy works with blocks. Arrows show the applied forces, and you can modify the properties of the blocks and the fluid.

Check it out with this simulation:
