Students in Frau Hodgdon’s German IV class had a unique challenge for their finals. They had to design a scientific experiment involving salt (their current unit of study), propose a hypothesis, conduct the experiment following the scientific method, and then present the experiment and its results to students and visitors in class — and do all of it in German!
The students’ presentations ranged from the effect of salt water on Gummi bears and the importance of adding salt to rice crispies to how adding salt to water affects buoyancy and how different types of salt (Himalayan rock salt, iodized salt, and kosher salt) melt ice differently. All student experiments were solidly researched and well presented in the target language.
Congratulations to all students in the two classes who combined science knowledge and German skills in such an impressive manner!
