Delijah: The Science of Popcorn

Last week, we made Popcorn! Delijah made this awesome blog post to explain how popcorn changes. It starts off as sweetcorn, then it gets dried up into a kernel and then heat makes the kernel pop!

Tha Zin: The Coke and Mentos Experiment!

This term we are learning how to use scientific language. Each time we do an experiment, we will predict, ask questions, discuss and summarize!

Room 13 really wanted to know how high the Coke and Mentos experiment would go so we tested it and it did not go that high at all but all at the end it was so fun.

Ch-ch-ch-ch changes!

This term our school topic is 'Ch-ch-ch-ch changes' . We will be learning all about science and how matter changes.  
On Monday, we kicked it off with the Coke and Mentos experiment. It was explosive!


On Wednesday, we made Oobleck. It was crazy how the Oobleck was a solid when you tried to hit it and a gooey liquid when you dripped it slowly. We had so much fun.

Loud Shirt and Wheels Day

On the last day of term 3 we had a Loud Shirt and Wheels Day. It was so much fun! Everyone was allowed to wear a crazy shirt and bring scooters, bikes and skateboards. Some people even brought hoverboards!
People all over New Zealand took part in Loud Shirt Day to fundraise money for deaf kiwi kids.

 5 of our teachers and Mr Burt wore matching shirts!
