Jackson is studying how clean a human's mouth is compared to an animal's mouth. So luckily with the help of our neighbors and friends, he swabbed 5 animals' and 5 humans' mouths yesterday. Then, he added the saliva to his petri dishes to see what grows. Thanks to Mr. Wallace for providing the insight into controls and the petri dishes! His project will take awhile to finish, so you will have to be on the edge of your seat waiting for the results. Here are some fun pictures to keep you company while you wait.

Finally, Will created two projects. Our first project wasn't successful last night, so at 8 pm, I had to come up with a different idea: how does warm air and cold air effect how balls bounce. Will found six different kinds of balls, and we tested them inside late last night. Then, this morning at 8 am, we tested them outside. He had an interesting series of questions he wanted to answer, but unfortunately his hypothesis didn't come true. What was neat though, was what we all learned about air pressure and cold air.
