The topic for today is “Food Science”.  We will start by mapping the human tongue for the four different kinds of taste: salty, sweet, bitter and sour.  Then we will be exploring the effects of hot and cold on food and the way things taste.  Please be aware that this may not be an appropriate activity for scientists with food allergies!  This activity is for students in grade 2-5 and they must be registered in order to attend.

Welcome to the first meeting of our newly-formed History Book club. Our first selection is Killer Angels by Michael Shaara.

Portraits of Lee, Longstreet, and other Civil War leaders are interwoven with historical detail to provide a fictional recreation of the bloody battle at Gettysburg. A superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant. In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life.Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war.  Publisher summary.

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Sign up today!
