This week each classroom held a science experiment showcase for all the other classes based on the theme of water.
Experiments included floating and sinking, optical illusions, the use of a siphon to transport liquid, water travelling through absorption, surface tension, the density of water and
it’s attraction to electricity.
3rd Class did a presentation on water pollution and read out poems they had written on the theme saving our rivers. They demonstrated how water can be cleaned using a filtration system. The finale in the middle classroom was the reaction of substances to create elephant’s toothpaste.
The senior classroom demonstrated the affects of water pollution on the environment and wildlife. They demonstrated an oil spill and it’s clean up. They proved that water may be polluted even though it does not look polluted.
They made a tornado in a bottle, demonstrated refraction and chromatography.
