Today we watched a SUPER COOL video about stamina and concentration. You could also use this video as a great way to talk about the metaphor of the feather (you'll know after you watch the video what I mean). The feather is what everything builds from and it can represent the importance of doing well in school as a young person and how life's experiences build off of it.

I highly recommend you watch. Here is the link:

We are studying the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in our fiction book. We are also discussing wormholes, multi-universe theory and how vacuums are created in physics. This is an incredible video that shows how the influence of gravity in a vacuum works. Watch and discuss. I hope you like it. You may need to copy and paste as the link may not work. :)
