The Bubble Strikes Back…!

August 20, 2013 by · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

In a galaxy far, far away the Dark Lord Mrs. Lorance was handing out vinegar and baking soda to children.  The Dark Crazy One, expected them to utilize the little knowledge they had to create explosive bubbles of epic proportions!  They had to go at it on their own.  Their worlds would expand and the results were to be mind blowing!! They had no clue where to start or what to expect and the Dark Lord would allow no failure.  Which was terrifying.  They decided that the best course of action was to begin the process with a 1 to 1.5 ratio, baking soda to vinegar, just because.  Then they had to decide whether to pour the baking soda first, or the vinegar.  They began to place the baking soda into the grenade first, because it was a solid.  Their next challenge was to decide how to reach a 1 to 1.5 ratio; via mass, or volume.  They decided volume.  They gathered 20 mL of baking soda and 30 mL of vinegar.  After several experiments they decided that the best ratio was 1 to 3, with vinegar being poured first and then adding baking soda after.  The resulting explosion was seen for miles.  It reached 175 mL in height.  WOOO!!

 

Digital Footprints

It is very important to understand that you have a digital dossier, or digital footprint, and what that means.

Please click to read Digital Dossier, written by Mrs. Bliss’ 5th graders.

Here is a great video called Digital Dossier by DigitalNatives, that Mrs. Bliss’ class watched during the Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge #3 about your digital dossier:

Building a positive and safe digital dossier is important. Your digital dossier stays with you forever, even after you are deceased. It stays with you, even if you delete something you regretted posting.

Your digital dossier can affect your future. It can affect whether or not you get a scholarship or a job. It can affect what people think about you and what they know about you.

What does your digital dossier say about you?

How can you build a positive and safe digital dossier?
