Term 3 Begins… with some inquiry into Science.

18 07 2009


The Earth (Papatuanuku) is our science laboratory. This term we will be investigating different aspects of science i,e. chemical reactions, floating and sinking and senses to name a few.

In small groups children will undergo mini investigations to find out the answer to a ‘BIG QUESTION’.

We will learn about graphing information, posing questions to inquire about and even some research via books and the internet.


As an incentive who ever can name these chemicals will be one of the scientists for our first class experiment. These are the symbols:

1. H =                      2. H2O =                       3. Ca =                          4. C =                          5. O =

We will be looking at how molecules are put together and how to identify each chemical.


So get those minds thinking about ‘What is Science’? Leave your thoughts below.
