Day 8: Dueling Buggies & Tides

We finished up the dueling buggies lab practical today. We also talked a little about what it means for a given approach to be “better”.

Earth Science: Tides

I gave students a one-month tide chart for Olympic National Park and had them look for patterns. I really like that their tide charts include the moon phases, so my students were making some connections between the biggest changes in the tides and the phase of the moon. We also talked about how to make sure the patterns were valid, which lead to looking at the tide charts for some additional months.
