Christmas in 1st & 2nd Class
Science Week November 14th-18th
Standing on Paper Cups– The Science; When you try standing on the individual cups, they all get crushed. That’s because all of your weight is pressing down on the cups. When you place many cups under the cardboard the cardboard distributes, or spreads out your weight over all the cups.
Unstoppable Bubbles– The Science; Liquid glucose forms a weak bond with the hydrogen in the water molecules, making evaporation take longer.

“Walking On Air” Experiment

How to boil water in a paper cup experiment
Refraction of light – The Science: light travelling from one transparent substance to another.
Lava Lamp– The Science; The children explored density and discovered that oil floats on the surface because water is heavier or denser than oil. The Alka-Seltzer tablet, which is heavier or denser than both the oil and the water, sinks straight to the bottom. When it reaches the water, the tablet reacts with the water to make tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide gas. These bubbles attach themselves to the blobs of colored water and cause them to float to the surface. When the bubbles pop, the gas escapes and the water sinks back under the oil again.
