Rowan - Year 3/4
Welcome to Rowan - Year 3/4!
In science, we have been learning about states of matter. We conducted numerous experiments in this unit, which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
One enquiry was entitled, 'Do all liquids freeze?'. We put 10 different liquids in the freezer and made predictions, then we reviewed our results.
Another enquiry we conducted was about how you can speed up the melting process of ice. The children were each given an ice cube and tried out various methods to melt it.
Finally, we experimented on finding where gas was present. We put effervescent tablets in tubes, mixed with water and put the lid on. The pressure of the CO2 releasing from the chemical reaction caused the lids to pop off.
We then put the effervescent tablets in coke to watch a similar reaction. The children loved this!
