We are SUPER SCIENTISTS!
Jade class LOVE hands on Science and conducting investigations and experiments. For Chemistry, we have been testing everyday materials and working out the best ones for creating our mini-beast shelters.
Working scientifically, we are learning to:
· Take part in a group test
· Discuss what we are going to do including how and why
· Make our own contributions to planning and evaluation and to recording our findings in different ways.
As part of our topic on Ancient Egypt, we followed the process of mummification on tomatoes. We recorded our observations, including weighing them prior to the test. Then we cleaned them, removed the insides, dried them with 'natron' then wrapped them in bandages, to be stored in air-tight jars.
We have examined their progress and will report on our findings after 70 days, just like the Ancient Egyptians.
