Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data. Today we were doing a slime experiment. Everybody dumped slime on Mr Anderson and some of the slime was hard and some was soft. We found out that if we just leave it in our hands it will run and be a liquid. But if we but if we squeeze our hands it would be a solid. We had to add more water to make it the right thickness/ liquid and added some vanilla essence because it smelt really bad. Afterwards it smelt good and then a few minutes later it smelt bad again. The slime looked like vomit because it was chunky and green/yellow. I observed the chunky oozes. In my opinion we had the best slime. For inferences I am probably multistructural because I am still learning science. In my opinion I think I improved from last year. I engaged in science at relational because I really like science because you can do so many experiments and activities. Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment We have done an experiment on a balloon rocket. I have been wondering how does the balloon move. When it’s on the rocket on the straw it moves and creates air and blasts off. I thought that the rocket was really cool. We made a lot of inferences because we expected the balloon to go a little but in a matter of fact it went very far so we were wrong.
