When you click on the picture, you will be able to watch a video I found in "How Stuff Works Videos". Once you have, get ready to answer the following questions on a sheet of paper, to hand in by October 1st in your Science lab. The sheet must have your name, class, and the title of this post as your title. The information for the answers is in this video.

1. What does the word "philosophy" mean?

2. Who was Aristotle?

3. Write at least 5 sentences about what Galileo Galilei found out.

4. What does a scientist do that a philosopher does not?

5. Why did the crumpled paper reach the floor before the sheet of paper?

6. Explain the experiment that the Apollo astronauts conducted on the moon.

NB: There is an ad right before the video... Be patient...

Hi Miss Florence,

Me an Alina did a project on Greek Philosophers in general last year. We researched about Socrates, Plato and Pythagoras as well as Aristotle. Socrates was particularly interesting for me.

The Ancient Greeks are on of my favourite topics, not only because of all the myths and legends, but of their great discoveries and strange likelihood of our world today, if slightly more primitive. But who knows, maybe primitive was the way it was meant to be. It worked well enough before.
