In Room 6 we have been busy investigating water. Did you know that water is a liquid? It has no shape, colour and very little taste. We discussed all the different ways that we use water everyday.
We discussed how some materials soak up water and others don’t. We poured water on different materials. We made predictions about whether they would absorb water or not. We were surprised by some of our results.
Today room 4 learned a song ‘My Brain is Very Important! We learned about our PFC, Hippocampus and our amygdala. M. Marita played the ukulele.
How do you slow down a snow woman melting? Hmmm….Do you put a coat on her? Will it make her melt slower or quicker? Or will it not make a difference at all? We had a class discussion and we all voted whether putting a coat on her would make a difference. Most people voted that it would make her melt quicker because she would be warmer. One person thought it wouldn’t make a difference and two people thought it would make her melt slower.
We were all surprised to learn that the coat does NOT make the snow woman warmer. It just keeps her at the same temperature for longer!
We are having great fun for Science Week. Check out what we have been up to in Room 5 and 6!
