Making Foam Dough

Yesterday 1/2 BE made foam dough. It was very messy. Here is our procedure:

Equipment:

  • Cornflour
  • Shaving foam
  • Food colouring
  • Bowl
  • Spoon

Prediction:

I predict when we mix the mixture the mixture will become squishy.

Steps:

  • Pour the same amount of cornflour and shaving foam into the bowl.
  • Add food colouring.
  • Mix it together and fell the dough.

Results:

The mixture felt like sticky shaving cream.

Can you explain the difference between the molecules in solids, liquids and gases?

Front Board Display

This week 1/2 BE and 1/2 HS were on the front display board. On the board we displayed Aboriginal artwork. We chose to display Aboriginal Artwork because NAIDOC week was from 5th to the 12th of July when we celebrate history, culture and achievments of Aborginal Austrlians. Here are some photos of our board:

Today we started learning about solids. liquids and gases. Here is a video we watched about it:

We made lemonade spiders to help us learn about solids, liquids and gases.

Here is our procedure:

Equipment:

Lemonade (liquid)     Ice Cream(solid)     Cups       Spoon

Prediction:

I predict when I mix the lemonade with the ice cream an invisible gas will come out.

Steps:

1. Pour the lemonade half way into a cup.

Results:

When you mix lemonade with ice cream we got bubbles, which is a gas.

Here are some pictures of us enjoying our drink:
