3rd Class – Ms. Herron Rice

Ms. Herron Rice’s 3rd Class are in Room 13.

3rd Class have been working so hard in room 13, here is a snapshot of some of the exciting activities we have been doing!

We really love science in room 13 and each week we do lots of exciting experiments. We carried out a liquid race to test the velocity of different liquids. We discovered that oil had a higher velocity than syrup, shampoo and even honey.

We also carried out lots of experiments to see if heat effected different materials.  We found out that wooden spoons are the best for cooking with as the heat doesn’t travel through the wood very much. We also discovered that butter melted much quicker than candle wax, sugar and even chocolate! In our latest experiment we tested different materials to see which was the most absorbent- the answer is kitchen roll!
