Lotions and Potions

On Thursday Rooms 2, 3 and 4 went to the museum to learn about explosions and potions.

First we went into Discovery World. Here are some photos of things we did there. There were some neon lights with lots of different colours.

There was a blowing machine which held a ball up in the air.

There was a ball track where the ball went round and up and down and through tunnels.

There was a big keyboard. When you stood on the keys it played music.

In the classroom Heather took us through some mixing activities. we had to mix some common household ingredients together and observe what happened. In this photo Heather put in a menthos mint/ lolly into a coke bottle and it exploded everywhere!! We all cheered and clapped- it made a bit of a mess but we thought it was great!!
