Learning Tasks

  1. Welcome students & assign seats
  2. About Mrs. Vigliotti
  3. The Right Stuff Demonstration- If you drop an Alka-Seltzer tablet into water, what happens? The little guy starts fizzing and bubbling. But what happens when you drop an Alka-Seltzer tablet into oil? Nothing. The little guy just lays there. The same is true of the mind of a student. When placed in an environment that doesn’t suit them, there’s no excitement, no “fizzing and bubbling.” -Steve Spangler Science
