This week we celebrated Science Week. We investigated why some objects float and why some objects sink. We tested a range of objects in our classroom. We had to first predict what we thought would happen and give reasons for our predictions. We then got to make our own boats out of plasticine and we tested them on Thursday.
On Monday we saw a rainbow in a shallow dish of milk!
On Wednesday we saw an empty cola tin 'jump' from one cup into another! The hot air from a blow dryer caused the tin to rise and 'jump' into the other cup!
On Thursday we learned about how the energy of motion from a rolling marble is transferred to a still marble. It stopped the first marble and casused the second marble to move. What do you think happened when we rolled a marble into two still marbles?
On Friday we learned how to do a balloon trick.! We learned how to pierce a balloon with a skewer without bursting the balloon!
