Storytelling Science

This term we've been learning about water through our story, Wondrous Water. We've also been conducting science experiments with water based on what we're learning.

First we started our science experiment with some jars that were filled with dye coloured water and some that were empty. Next, Ms. Van Hart placed rolled up paper towels connecting each jar to the one beside it. Then we wrote our observations of the experiment so far and what we thought would happen next. After that, we waited patiently to see what occurred overnight. We were so excited at the end of the day to see that the coloured dye had transferred from one jar to the next through the paper towels, just a like a train travelling on the train tracks. The blue and yellow dye mixed together in the middle jar to make an aqua colour.

We learned about using science vocabulary to describe what we see. Our highlight was taking part in a science experiment was fun! Our challenge was knowing what important observations to write down and what to leave out.

This blog post was written collaboratively and enthusiastically with a small group of Koru 3 students including, Alyesha, Niko, Emma and Darius.
