The Eminence Fantasy Football Playoffs Are Set!

Eminence Fifth Graders:

It's time for the Eminence Fantasy Football Playoffs! 


A few guidelines: 

    ~ If your team did not finish in the top 16, your season is over.  Sorry!  In order to receive full credit on the assignment, you'll need to have your team's score calculated through week 12 by the end of next week.    
    ~ It is now a "head to head" matchup format.  The team with the highest score each week advances on to the next round.  
    ~ Each week, the team with the better record gets "Home Field Advantage" over the team with the lower seed.     
    ~ Home field advantage is a 10 point bonus each week.   
    ~ We will "reseed" the bracket after each round.  In other words, the highest seeded team remaining will always play the lowest seeded team remaining.  
    ~ There is no "Home Field Advantage" in the Super Bowl.  
    ~ Superbowl winner gets a trophy!  
Make sure your teams are set and ready to go each week.  Brackets are "locked" on Thursday of each week. 
Good luck!  Here's the playoff bracket as of today: 

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!


I hope you all have a great week.  Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite holidays -- mostly because I get to do four of my favorite things (all on the same day):
   ~ Spend time with my family
   ~ Eat ridiculous amounts of turkey
   ~ Watch football
   ~ Nap

I'm also interested to see where you all are headed for the break.  Would you mind filling out this form for me?  Click here to take it.

If you're staying in town for the break (absolutely nothing wrong with that), feel free to put "Eminence, Kentucky".

Thanks!

Bowling Ball and a Feather...

Hello Students!

One of you asked me today, "What weighs more, a ton of bowling balls or a ton of feathers?"
Of course, the both "weigh" the same (one ton/2000 pounds), but watch what happens when a bowling ball and a feather fall at the same time in a "vacuum" that has no air inside of it:


Neat, huh?
