Magical Materials

We have been continuing our investigations in Science this week. We have been looking at evaporation, filteration and magnetism. The class conducted experiments over two days where we had to seperate materials using different methods.

Some of the children got a little messy when we were using sieves to seperate the flour and raisins though!

Another experiment we did was to see if different objects were permeable.

We also tested the denseness, flexibility, magnetic properties and transparency of a variety of materials.

We have tested different temperatures of water to see how it affects the speed in which other materials dissolve in it and have also left a container of salt water on the windowsill to see how evaporation works.
