Buddies this Week
The children had a great time teaching their buddies how to ride a skateboard.
This week we completed a great whole class experiment to investigate weathering from wind.
Yesterday 4B set up a sand experiment. First, we tried to have a flat surface and blew a fan at it to scatter the sand and move it to the bottom of the tray. But that experiment did not work. We made a small mountain with are hands and let the fan blow all day. At the end of the day only half of the mountain remained since the wind weathered the mountain. The next day we came back and the mountain was a flat surface again.
Yesterday, our class did a sand weathering experiment. The first thing we did was place sand in a black tray and shape a mountain with the sand. Then we took a fan and put it behind the black tray. It took a really long time for the mountain to slowly break. We learnt that the more the fan blew, the more the sand got dry and that helped the mountain to break faster. I really enjoyed doing that experiment because I learnt a lot of things from the experiment about weathering and erosion.
