1st and 2nd class were very busy this week. They were learning about the world of science!
On Tuesday, we tested out a range of markers to see which were the best to make a rainbow! We discovered the cheapest markers were the best!
On Wednesday, we tried to build the tallest free standing tower. We were only allowed one piece of paper, glue and a scissors. We all worked in groups and had so much fun testing our ideas! See the pictures for our wonderful creations!
On Thursday, we created lava lamps!! We used food colouring, a plastic bottle, water, vegetable oil and an alka seltzer tablet! We learned that oil is lighter than water but when the water and the tablet produce bubbles it will rise through the oil!!
For our last day of Science week, we were treated to a fantastic event in the library! We went to see the show “Volcanoes are Oresome!” We learnt about volcanoes and all about different types of rocks and fossils! We even got to taste salt stone crystals!
We have leant so much this week all about science!
