Hi 3/4NB. In ICT today we will be using these links to find out more about solids and liquids. CLick on the images below and they will take you to the activities! When you have finished comment on this blog post about what you found out!
We also made chocolate crackles with the help of Miss Bortolin.
Min this experiment we were investigating whether heating and cooling changes the state of matter for chocolate and butter.
This experiment had changes of state! We melted butter and chocolate using heat. They melted at different speeds but both became liquids when heated. We then mixed the butter and chocolate with cocoa puffs and refrigerated the mixture in patty pans. After cooking the chocolate crackles becam solid again!
It was a delicious experiment with most students rating the finished product 9 or 10 out of 10 and they only received one 0/10 .
Here are some pictures of the experiment!
This term we have been leaning all about Matter, more specifically, about solids and liquids.
On Friday 7th August, 3/4 NB completed two experiments. The first experiment we completed was “outrageous ooze!”. In this experiment we were investigating whether the product of cornflour and water made a solid, a liquid, or both a solid AND a liquid!
Here are some pictures of us completing the investigation
We discovered that Outrageous ooze could be both a solid AND a liquid at the same time. All we used was cornflour and water. The consistency of the ooze depended on how much cornflour and how much water we used.
3/4 NB students comment below about how the ooze felt!
This term our Inquiry topic is “What’s the Matter?” We will be learning all about solids and liquids and how they can change states. You will be participating in lots of exciting science experiments.
Here is a YouTube movie about solids, liquids and gas!
And here is a game you can try (click on the image):
