This is a guest post by Alana and Haille.

Today 2KM and 2KJ skyped with Mrs Watson’s class in Sointula, Canada.

It was 9 o’clock (in the morning) when 2KM and 2KJ were skyping and it was 2 o’clock (in the afternoon) when they were skyping.

Alana, Haille, Jordi and Mia all had a special job each. Alana and Haille were the typers. Jordi and Mia were the photographers.

Mrs Watsons class asked 2KM and 2KJ lots of questions and we asked them questions too.

Here is a screen shot of Mrs Watson’s 2/3 class blog. Also here  is the link to their blog because they have done a post too.Click here.

Science with Melane

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.

Guest Post – Jarrod

Last month Jarrod was the 2KM winner of our May Is Family Blogging Month competition. Part of his prize was that he won a guest post on our blog. Here it is!

Hi everyone, my name is Jarrod and I won this special guest post from winning the May is Family Blogging Month in 2KM.

Jarrod

Our family has 20 acres of land in Amphitheatre, Victoria which we call “The Block”. We sometimes go there by ourselves or with friends. It takes us just over two hours to drive there.

At “The Block” I like to;

• Ride my motorbike
• Go yabbying
• Go four wheel driving
• Help Dad with the firewood
• Toast marshmallows
• Cook garlic bread on the potbelly
• Go for a drive to Avoca (the next town)

At “The Block” there’s lots of wildlife. I’ve seen kookaburras, kangaroos, echidnas, lizards and snakes.

Have you ever been to Amphitheatre or Avoca?

If you had a block of land what would you do when you go there?

Please leave me a comment. Thank you.
