This term we are making hats for technology. We had a practise at making a paper hat. We decided that a hat like this is not a protective hat.

Let's be scientists - week 4

This week in Room 15 we did the walking water experiment and we loved it!
First we got 7 cups and tipped water in every second one. 
Next we put a little bit of dye in the cups with water. 

We put red in the outside one, then yellow, then blue and red again at the other end. 
Then we folded paper towels and put them from one cup to the next cup. 

What did we think would happen? 
  • There will be no water left
  • It will make a dinosaur
  • It will go brown

Then we carried on with our writing and we could see that the handy towel was soaking up all the water...
Then the two colours started to meet in the cup in the middle.

We were amazed when we saw that the colours had mixed and made new colours

  • Red + blue = purple
  • blue + yellow = green
  • yellow + red =orange

After that we put the hand towels in the dye. The red and the yellow dye got mixed and the red and the blue got mixed and the blue and the yellow got mixed.

Today in Room 15 we were Scientists and we did an experiment. First Miss Robinson tipped clear water into the Magic Bucket. Then it turned into red and... I was right! But how did it change colour? I think there's play dough inside and it made it change colour.

This morning Room 15 were Scientists learning about colours. We were doing a experiment. First Miss Robinson put water into the Magic Bucket and then red dye came out. Then we put the red dye back in and I thought it was going to be Kahurangi but it came out clear. Then we put some blue in as well and it was still clear. So we got some blue water and some red water in a bowl to see if it went clear but it turned purple. It was cool.
