What are we learning?
Learning to play the glockenspiel
Monday 5th July 2021
Today we carried out two different experiments.
First we completed the "walking water" experiment to explore capillary action. This experiment taught us how plants are able to pull water upwards from the ground.
It was also interesting in exploring different colours and how we can mix primary colours to make secondary colours.
We also carried out an experiment using skittles. We made predictions by deciding whether they would dissolve faster in warm or cold water and also predicted which colour would dissolve first.
We found out that skittles dissolve much faster in warm water than in cold water. The first colour to dissolve was the yellow and the last colour to dissolve was the red.
