This week Year 4B investigated rocks by conducting a series of tests on a rock. The students worked with a partner to conduct the following tests –
Observe what happens when water is squirted onto the rock
Weigh and measure the rock
Scratch the rock with scissors
Pour a few drops of vinegar onto their rock to see if it bubbles.Shine a torch onto the rock to see if it is shiny or dull.
Use a magnifier to draw a detailed picture of their rock.
Congratulations to Nate and Isla for being awarded the Best Team Award for this investigation.
