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!

Science: Shadow Experiment

In Science we had to explore whether or not a shadow will grow or get smaller depending on the position of the light. Below is a slide show of our experiment. We will share our results with you soon.

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.

 

Science: Rocks, Soils and Landscapes

For Science we are exploring rocks, soils and landscapes and how they have changed over time. We have a challenge for you. Can you guess where the landscape pictured below comes from? Do you think you know what is causing this landscape to change over time? We would love to read your ideas. Please leave a comment with your ideas.

Science: Animal Classification

In Science we have been busy learning how to classify animals. We started off completing an activity where we had to classify lots of pictures of animals into groups. The first two groups we needed to sort our animals into were vertebrates and invertebrates. Vertebrates are animals with backbones and Invertebrates are animals without backbones. We then needed to sort our vertebrates group into a further five groups. A description of these five groups can be found below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Birds

Birds have a back bone, they have feathers. They lay eggs in a nest. The eggs have a hard shell. They have a steady body temperature. Examples: Eagle, Hawk and Falcon.

Fish

Fish have a backbone, fins and scales. They lay eggs in water and use gills to get oxygen from the water. They do not have a steady temperature. Examples of fish: Stingray, Puffer Fish and a Shark.

Amphibians

Amphibians have a backbone. They lay eggs in water. During their life cycle they change from a stage when they live entirely in water to a stage when they can live in water and on the land. They do not have a steady body temperature.

Examples: Frog , Toad, and Salamander.

Mammals

Mammals have a back bone. They have hair or fur on their bodies.They have live babies and they feed their babies with milk. They use lungs to breathe. They have warm blood which means they have a steady body temperature.

Examples: Lion, Tiger and Monkey.

Reptiles

Reptiles have a backbone. They have scaley skin. They lay eggs on land. They have lungs to breathe, but they dont have a steady body temperature. Examples: Snake, Turtle and Lizard.

Do you know any interesting facts about Birds, Reptiles, Mammals, Fish or Amphibians? We would love to hear from you via a comment.

Science: Water

In Science we looked at water. We had to describe what water looks like, smells like, feels like, sounds like and tastes like.

This is what I came up with…..

Water

Water looks clear and wet.

Water feels wet and cold.

Water smells like nothing.

Water sounds like the sea.

Water tastes cold.
