Science 6th Class Ms Geraghty. Acid and Alkalis September 2021 Strand: Working scientifically Experiment: Testing liquids to determine where they rate on the PH Scal
Ms O' Mahony's Second Class: Strand: Materials Strand Unit: Materials and change We investigated change in materials during Science this week. We needed skittles, a plate and warm water. Each pod made a different pattern with their skittles on a plate and we watched what happened when we added warm water. We noticed that water dissolves the colours and forms rainbow patterns. We really enjoyed watching our different rainbow patterns form!
Ms O'Mahony's Second Class: We made lava lamps to investigate how materials can change. We needed vegetable oil, water, food colouring, alka-seltzer tablets and jars. We mixed water and food colouring together before adding it to a jar. Next, we poured vegetable oil into the jar. We noticed that the oil and coloured water did not mix because water is denser than oil. Our final step was to add an alka-seltzer tablet to create gas bubbles. We really enjoyed making our lava lamps!
Mr Maher's Sixth Class: 6th class were experimenting with chromatography to examine the make up of different colour markers.
Ms Cooney's Second Class: Rang 2 have been learning all about volcanoes. To finish off our learning each pod worked together to create their own volcanoes using recycled materials. Then, to discover how materials can be changed by mixing, the class made their volcanoes erupt. Materials: baking soda, vinegar, food colouring and washing up liquid As you can see, there was great fun had by all.
Ms Bruton's First Class: Absorbent materials
Mr Ruane's Fourth Class: Mixing and Other Changes: Fourth class explored some simple ways in which materials may be separated using sieves and varying meshes. We used coffee filters as sieves.
