Miss Scrivener and Mrs.M.R.
We made Lava lamps.
The children made predictions, conducted their experiments
and proved themselves to be successful and correct.
We made a reaction happen to create a Diwali light display.
To make the Lava Lamps we had to follow a set of instructions
*The children had to get into 6 groups of 3-4 children.
* Each group had to go to a station set up with :
* a bottle
* a funnel
* food colouring
Miss. S. will give us our instructions.
We had to use a funnel to pour the water into the bottle.
Nandhini has put the funnel in the bottle.
Such concentration as he didn't even spill a drop!
Ezra is concentrating very hard!
What do you think is happening?
Did the oil and the water mix or react?
Melody and Annabel help hold the bottle.
The oil is sitting on the top of the water!
Next we had to add 5 drops of food colouring.
We could choose from 3 colours red, blue and green.
Aryan has chosen to use green.
Wow! thought Nicole!
"What did you see happening, Chelsea?" asked Miss.S.
Lastly, Justin is adding a piece of Alka Seltzer tablet.
"What do you think will happen now?" asked Austin.
When we mixed the alka seltzer we noticed that the water and
the oil moved because we created a gas called carbon dioxide.
The gas is rising and takes the water with it.
Miss. S. told us that this is what happens when you open a coke bottle.
The gas in the bottle is released.
We loved doing this and we look forward
to doing some more.
