Primary 5 science experiment

This term, both Primary 5 classes have been learning all about the environment and recycling.

We were learning about the difference between bio-degradable and non bio-degradable materials. As part of this, we carried out an experiment to see if we could make a bio-degradable plastic, using natural materials. The pupils had to predict what they thought would happen and then write up a report about what happened. Everybody really enjoyed this hands on experience.


When we poured the vinegar into the milk it curdled…yuck!
We had to strain the mixture through tights.
