Over the past few weeks Amelie, Bradley, Jarrod and Mikayla have been doing science with Melane (Jarrod‘s Mum).
This is a special guest post by Amelie, Jarrod and Mikayla.
We did 5 science lessons.
In lesson 1 we put oil and water together to see if they would mix. Then in separate containers, we added food dye, dishwashing liquid, milk and red vinegar to the oil and water to see which ones would mix with the oil and which ones would mix with the water.
In lesson 2 we made butter using a marble, a container and cream. We had to shake the container for about 10 minutes until we had butter and butter milk.
In lesson 3 we got to make Milo ice-cream. We had to put cream, Milo and milk into a container and mix and then place the container in a bowl and surround it with ice. Then we had to put salt on the ice to make the ice melt and turn the mixture into ice-cream. While we waited for the mixture to turn into ice-cream we tried to get ice out of a glass of water using string and salt, we weren’t allowed to touch it though.
In lesson 4 we tried to find out if putting a coat on a snowman would make him melt or stop him from melting. To find this out we tried melting ice cubes in different ways such as, wrapping one in foil, placing one in water, leaving one in a plate and putting one in our mouth. We learnt the ones in our mouth and in the water melted the quickest.
In lesson 5 we melted all different cubes of ice to see which would melt first. We melted ice cubes made from mango and apple juice, cordial, milk and lemonade. We discovered the cordial and lemonade ones melted the fastest.
After we finished all of the science lessons we presented a PowerPoint slide show to our class. Here is a copy of what we presented.
