WEFOUNDHawaiian Island Detective Club: Pineapples in Peril


I also shared with you the amazing questions that your children have been asking about the formation of the Hawaiian Islands. Along with the questions, we have been working on developing our hypotheses. An important part of the inquiry process and also the scientific process is to be able to ask a good, researchable question and then be able to form a hypothesis that can be tested. I asked the children help me understand this strange word, hypothesis . Here are some of their explanations:

A hypothesis is:
another word for a prediction.
what you think is going to happen.
a guess.
a guess that you think it might be, but it might not be. Like I think a turtle is a reptile.
scientific guess.
what you think is going to happen in the future.
what you think you might know is going to happen but did not happen yet.
what you think is going to happen with an experiment.

I am particularly interested by this last hypothesis. This student is not only applying some information that he has gained over the last few weeks, but he is also using his prior knowledge to create a pretty testable hypothesis. I am fascinated by his connection of his knowledge about the Mrs. Johnson's kiln to our study of volcanoes. It is amazing where our knowledge comes from and how we organize it.

This Week Hawaii is your go-to resource when planning your time in paradise. We’re dedicated to providing you with tips, advice and insights so you can enjoy your time across the islands.

Oahu, also known as The Gathering Place, is the hub of government, military and commerce. It's a busy bee of an island with many shopping, dining and activities opportunities. Outlying areas are yours to explore offering a more relaxed feel. Rent a car or join a tour to see what's out there!

The Valley Isle of Maui has been rated one of the world's top islands for many year. Not as busy as Oahu, yet, not as laid back as Kauai, Maui is just right! Experience the road to Hana. And, of course, catching the sunrise (or sunset!) at Haleakala National Park is a must. Be sure to make your reservation!

Tom Selleck narrowly missed out on playing archaeologist Indiana Jones, instead channelling his beefcake bravado into Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV - aka Magnum PI. A former military man he spends his off-hours relaxing in a former friend's swanky Hawaiian homestead, the grounds of which he shares with his verbal sparring partner, the quick-witted British veteran Higgins (John Hillerman).

His trademark 'tache and gleaming red Ferrari are the more memorable associations of this sun-kissed snoop, and often take precedence over his dedication to sniffing out creeps. Never without a Hawaiian shirt on his back, he might be rockin' the casual flip-flop stylings of a beach bum, but that's perhaps his greatest asset: Magnum's targets never see him coming (unless he's on a jetski.)

On the surface Detective Thomas Lynley (Nathaniel Parker) shares more than a passing similarity to 007; each drive prestigious cars and carry out their business in an air of elitism. And that's where it ends. Lynley's heritage - he's an Earl, don't you know - imbues him with a moral fortitude that often counters the thinking of his straight-shooting scrappy partner, Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers (Sharon Small).

"The soft island breeze brings you strange melodies
And they tell of exotic mysteries under the tropical spell of
Hawaiian Eye. Hawaiian Eye. Hawaiian Eye.

Another piece of product from the Warner Bros. TV Eye factory, picture this as " 77 Sunset Strip goes Hawaiian."

But actually, Hawaiian Eye was the most successful of the Sunset clones, lasting four seasons, and still has fans to this day.
