This Term the Grade 3 students at BHPS have been investigating Solids, Liquids and Gases.
Today we had a Science Incursion. It was really fun and we got to do lots of experiments.
I think that I am safe to say that our favorite experiment was making rockets…..
You will need:
A film canister and lid
Place about 1/4 of a teaspoon of bicarb into the canister lid, flatten it.
Fill the canister to about 1/4 full with vinegar.
Put the lid on, quickly shake, place, lid side down on a surface and move away quickly.
Watch your rocket soar into the sky!
Helpful hint: Move away quickly as you may be injured if the canister hits you!
We made our own rockets using a small, cylinder shaped container with a rubber stopper.
Which experiment did you enjoy the most?
