Exploring Seeds

Yesterday in Science we looked closely at seeds. We did this by using Borlotti Beans.

We first looked at a dry bean and split it open to see what it looked like under a magnifying glass. Here is a photo below.

We then looked at a soaked bean that had  been sitting in water overnight. Look at the difference in size, once the bean has been soaked.

We then split the soaked bean open to see if there were any changes. If you  look closely you can see the first shoot starting to appear and the differences between the dry bean and the soaked been.

Group 2

Lately in science we have been working on a unit called ‘Melting Moments’. As one of our activities we had to get into groups and experiment on melting things in the heat, such as:

A metal spoon, water, honey, chocolate buds and vegetable oil. We had to leave them in the sun for five minutes without touching them.  The chocolate melted the best out of everything,  but it must be impossible for us to melt the spoon in five minutes with the sun!

Looking for Light by Elissa

In Science this term we have been looking at light. We had a homework task to identify the primary sources of light that we have at home and present our findings in a Prezi or poster. Below is Elissa’s efforts with Prezi, but please look out for future examples above this post.
