Week 7

This week we started by talking about our book we read in Mike’s class. I read Cannery Row so I answered questions about the characters and the point the author is trying to get across. We then had a Socratic seminar about the American dream and about how the rich can contribute to help the poor. In chemistry, we had our first lab. We got a volumetric flask and got some reactive chemicals and with that, they let off hydrogen to fill up the balloon. We discussed water problems in California. How they are rerouting rivers from lakes and making reservoirs out of valleys that are not supposed to hold a lake.
