Yesterday 1/2 BE made foam dough. It was very messy. Here is our procedure:
I predict when we mix the mixture the mixture will become squishy
Pour the same amount of cornflour and shaving foam into the bowl.
Add food colouring.
Mix it together and fell the dough
The mixture felt like sticky shaving cream

Here are some photos of our board:
On Friday 1/2 BE made very sticky slime. We made slime because we are learning about solids, liquids and gases. Here are some pictures of our slime:
Can you list some of ingredients we used to to make slime? What was your favourite part of making the slime?
This week we have been learning about Aboriginal Art. We learnt how different symbols have different meanings.
We created these dot paintings using Australian animals.

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:
Lemonade (liquid) Ice Cream(solid) Cups Spoon
I predict when I mix the lemonade with the ice cream an invisible gas will come out.
1. Pour the lemonade half way into a cup.
2. Put a scoop of ice cream into your cup.
3. Stir ice cream into the lemonade.
4. Then you will see lots of bubbles!
When you mix lemonade with ice cream we got bubbles, which is a gas.
Here are some pictures of us enjoying our drink:
