We have been having lots of Halloween fun for the last week (and maybe a bit longer too.) Here we are making 2 colour pattern paper chains. We compared these to see which ones were longest and shortest.
Then we began an experiment to see what would happen to pinecones if we put them in water. We found out a few really interesting things. The first interesting point was that when we looked through the water - the pinecones looked much bigger. We also noted that pinecones float on water, which we thought was helpful for spreading the pinecones to faraway places. In our experiment we had 3 containers, 1 with no water, 1 with cold water and 1 with hot water. We made predictions about what we thought would happen when they went into water. It was really interesting to watch. We noticed that the pinecones in cold water began to close up but very slowly. The pinecones in the empty jar stayed the same and the pinecones in hot water....well, I wonder who remembers at home what happened to them?
Have a fantastic mid-term break! See you all on Monday week!
