Rocket Challenge



Yesterday with Mrs C we were making art, but the scientific way.  Instead of using pens and paintbrushes we used vinegar, dye, Alka-Seltzer tablets, coffee cups and film canisters.

To get started with, we got into groups of two.  All the groups split up and one got the coffee cup full of vinegar from Mrs C and the other one picked the dye.  Then, we poured the dye into the vinegar to make it colourful.  Next, Mrs C gave us our film cannister.. 

We went outside the Koraunui Care Centre and had a big piece of paper.  We blew all our film cannisters up.

After we finished blowing them up we went back to Room 5 and talked about where the maths was in the challenge.

The answer was:  measurement and fractions.
