We did a little experiment to observe what happens to cooled water within the water cycle. We could see condensation as the water collected as droplets on the cold surface and then as the droplets gathered together, the water fell back down as precipitation.
We also observed this in our little experiment with our Water Cycle plastic bag as the sun warmed the water, then it evaporated and condensed and fell back down into the bag.
Cornflour Gloop Fun
It’s a solid …. It’s a liquid ….. It’s a Non-newtonian liquid!!!!
We had great fun in class working with this non-newtonian liquid. We are familiar with substances that change state from solids to liquids to gases when we change temperature, such as freezing water into ice or boiling it away into water vapour. But this mixture shows how changes in pressure, instead of temperature, can change the materials properties.
Mrs Scott took us for PE on Monday and we played lots of different games. Thankfully Mrs Fletcher was back for PE on Wednesday.
