Today Christina Hilo was in to teach us about different types of wetlands and the plants and animals that are found in these very unique habitats. Here, EMMA G., illustrates one of the many adaptations cat-tails have developed for life in moist, anoxic environments.








Today was also Tri-sci day for the 7th grade girls. Today's activity involved determining the pH of certain liquids. Here STEPHANIE, FELICIA, MARISSA, JENNA, and SIERRA test the pH of simulated urine using litmus paper and pH indicator paper.

Hey Mr. Devoe,

Thanks for inviting me to teach at the school. I hope the young people had fun, and I loved hangin' out with the girls during tri-sci.

Very interesting comments about the acid levels in soda as well. You should play some hip hop for them- not the stuff on the radio.

Take care,
Christina
