Eighth grade students in Mrs. Hester’s Science class have been studying the Law of Conservation of Mass. Students participated in a lab in which they have to determine the mass before and after various chemical reactions. The Law of Conservation of Mass tells us that mass is neither created nor destroyed in chemical reactions. In other words, the mass of any one element at the beginning of a reaction will equal the mass of that element at the end of the reaction. Students observed and measured the mass of popcorn kernels before and after being popped and compared their mass. Working in small groups students also measured the mass of a chemical reaction both before and after the reaction. Students were surprised to see first hand that although things changed physically they still maintained their original mass.
The Middle School of Poplarville will host a Scholastic Book Fair Monday, Oct. 7- Friday, Oct. 11 from 7:45-3:30 in the MSP Libary and will stay open until 4:30 on Wednesday. The book fair will feature a wide range of books for young teens and adults, including mystery and adventure novels, fantasy trilogies, sports guides, manga, and the latest bestsellers from more than 150 publishers. Parents, children, teachers, and the community are invited to attend.

You may also view our ONLINE BOOK FAIR which makes it possible for students and parents to browse the Book Fair from home. They can make a list and then come purchase the items in the MSP Library. The Online Book Fair shows only the books and not items such as pencils, pens, bookmarks, erasers, etc. that are available. The Online Book Fair also allows students who have family members and friends who cannot attend our Book Fair or who live out of town can have the chance to participate in our school’s Book Fair by shopping at our website: http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/middleschoolofpoplarville. You may shop the Online Book Fair Oct. 2-22. All items purchased in the Online Book Fair will be shipped to the school and will be delivered to the students.
