Learning about space in Room 11

Room 11 have been exploring the world of space and space travel. We wondered what food was like so we tried some space ice cream. It wasn’t cold and felt like styrofoam!

Learning about Vikings with Room 10

Room 10 learning about Vikings in Rathmines library.

 

Learning about healthy teeth in Room 1

Room 11 discovered the effects of different drinks on our teeth. We used hard boiled eggs for the experiment as we learned that they have the same enamel as in our teeth. We put one in water to use as our control (to compare it to), one in Coke and one in apple juice. We were surprised to see the apple juice was the most disgusting! It was great fun.

Static electricity in Room 11

Room 11 have been learning about static electricity. We rubbed the balloon in the same direction on our jumper or leg and the static electricity created was able to pick up small pieces of paper and even our hair!

Electric workers in Room 15

Room 15 were learning all about electricity and circuits.

We learned about static and current electricity. We made simple circuits using wires, batteries and bulbs. 🙂

We learned all about Morse code and sent some coded messages to our friends!
