Homework: Another great science website

Ms. Angela showed me this website and it looks great. There’s lots of ideas for experiments you could do at school or at home. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens tomorrow. This afternoon was great!

    I think that the website above is really cool, and organized because it has a variety of activities to choose from, and they’re all organized in sections which is easy to find.
    I am interested in an activity called ‘dancing ice’, which is about density and what happens to the ice once its in veggie oil. Another I am very interested in is ‘Amazing Detergent’ because I really want to know what happens with detergent when it’s mixed with the food colouring.
    I can get the supplies form those activities very easily, and I will bring them tomorrow so I can do it.

    Form the website of yesterday, there was an activity called ‘Go with the flow’ and it’s about water when it creates patterns once it’s mixed with soap that has ‘Glycol Stearate’ in it. I have the supplies at home, so I will bring them tomorrow too.

    Tomorrow I will do more science experiments, since today I forgot my supplies. I will also try to take a lot of photos for evidence, and come up with a little conclusion and see what went wrong during the experiments.

    I had a lot of fun today in class, because we got to make slime which was new to me. We ended up having to add more glue than it said because it was too watery without more glue in it. I am looking forward for science experiments tomorrow!!

    Hi, Mr Sam I thought that it would be good if I just continued with what I was doing today. I would like to see how many cups I could make before I cannot hear the other person 🙂

      No problem, Jon. There’s lots you can do with that experiment, lots of different variables. I’m looking forward to helping you with it!

      Can you explain the experiment with a few more details?

    I am going to continue doing what me, Paul, Seb and Julien did today. But tommorow we are going to make the route a bit more challenging and possibly longer. I might bring some bigger ballons to school tommorow so that the ballon rocket can go further and it will really help us with our work.

      You guys made a great start today. Tomorrow, you need to work with more thought and much less crazy behaviour.

    Mr.Sam I read about my experiments and it said that it was a joke experiment and the boiling water juxt shows bubbles. 😦

    • Mr. Sam
      May 11, 2011 at 9:26 pm

      Did you see bubbles though?

    I’m interested in-
    Cornflour slime
    Dancing ice
    glue goo
    Salt vs. Ice
    Crystal Grower
    Amazing Detergent

    I think that Salt vs. Ice is really interesting because I want to see how salt can make a piece of string stick to a ice cube.

    I am making corn slime.What i had to do is pour some cornflour into the bowl and put some water on the corn flour until it becomes hard and then i had to stir it.After that i put the mixture in the fridge.I need to put the slime for several days and take it out.I wonder if the slime will be gooey or hard when i remove it from the fridge.
