E21 The One with the Granita

It's actually pretty good...

Students will learn about freezing, melting, and changing states of matter. They’ll be shown how sugar and salt affects the formation of ice crystals. They’ll also be shown a simple cucumber granita recipe, which can be recreated at home or in class. For an English prompt, students meet Sam West, writer of the Phenomenom sketches, whose illustrious writing career has taken him from editor of magazines to Cannes Film Festival as a screenwriter.

Factastical #5

The sound of your farts has nothing to do with what you ate. It’s all about the position of your sphincter (the circular muscle that helps control the flow your poo) when gas builds up. So it’s a bit like blowing air through a recorder really.
