MSM 488: The Fungus, Among Us…


Trying to figure out what to watch. It’s either Christmas movies or serial killer documentaries. Either way, we slayin (sleighin).

I dropped a copy of “A Christmas Carol” on my foot. 

  • It hurts like the Dickens. 

I got hit in the head with a drum. 

  • I think I have a percussion

I have no idea what borrowing language is, but I’ll take your word for it. 

My battery has two large bumps on it. Upon testing, one came back positive. I hope it’s not terminal.

My friend went bald years ago, but still carries a comb with him.

  • He just can’t part with it.

My friend found out his girlfriend is really a ghost. 

  • He had his suspicions the moment she walked through the door.

Dry erase boards are remarkable!

Middle School Science Minute: Conducting Science Labs in a Virtual World Part 3

I was recently reading the November/December 2020 issue of “Science Scope” a publication for middle school teachers from the National Science Teaching Association. 

In this issue, I read “The Online Teacher“ column written by Denise Wright.  Her article was entitled “Conducting Science Labs in a Virtual World.”

This is the third in a three-part series on the three strategies for conducting science labs in the virtual world.  

Part 1 — Virtual Simulations

Part 2 — Science at Home

Part 3 — Use of Data Sets

Data sets are a great way to get students to analyze scientific data.  Online science courses can contain virtual labs that can be applied to real life applications.  In the online world, students have the opportunity to create their own experiments, analyze data, and participate in meaningful learning.

The Twitterverse

The camera on one of my student’s computer was broken today. Every three minutes he would unmute and say “I’m still here even if you can’t see me…don’t forget me!” Blessings during stressful times!
