To end our topic of CHANGE we had a master chef cook-off. Each class made something.
Room 7 made hokey pokey to show that..... the baking soda releases all of its gas (CO2) and makes a chemical reaction with the sugar and golden syrup. That makes it bubbly and frothy.
Here is the recipe:
Put 5 tablespoons of sugar into a pot.
Put 2 tablespoons of golden syrup into the pot.
Out the pot on a low heat to dissolve the sugar.
Boil on a low heat for 4 minutes.
Put one teaspoon of baking soda into the pot.
Stir quickly and spoon out onto a greased tray.

We froze the same amount of water in different shaped containers. We watched them melt.
We found out that the more surface area a frozen block of water has the quicker it melts... because water melts from the outside first!!!

We are experiementing with ice and how it changes.
We know that...
- ice is a solid
- sugar mixed with water and then frozen melts faster than just ice
- ice melts from the outside first
- water is a liquid
We did an experiment with a large ice cube. We put water, food dye and salt on it.
The salt dissolved a little bit and it left a hole in the ice.

Now it's time to get back into it - setting new goals and trying hard to achieve them!!
You will see on the right side of this blog is 'My Blog List'. All children in Room 7 have their blogs listed... so click into yours and have fun reflecting on your work.
This term we are going to be adding more and more reflections on our learning.
Have a great term 3!

We are learning about NZ disasters. We had to research the important information on our chosen disaster and think about the effect on the people involved.
This is a video of the Napier earthquake. Some children in the class chose this disaster.

A man was showing us around. We were up
to the fllters and there was sand at the
bottem of the tanks to clean the water. It goes from the wwtp to your house
and back to the wwtp. Its like a life
cycle but it dies because you drink
it and you bake with it.
Does it die? Maybe not?
And we went to the wtp
the same thing.
Here are all the kids from room7. They are at the waste water treatment plant in Pukete.
We learnt that theres a very bright light that kills the bugs. The bugs clean the discasting water. Then the bugs die like I seid the bugs have to die one day
