We had a great time before Christmas doing lots of experiments for our exploration of liquids and solids. We made gloop and decorated Christmas trees, brewed up Christmas Slime, and constructed a snow globe!
We also did an experiment that turned solid into a solution and then back into solid again, but in the form of crystals! We dissolved salt in warm water and then designed a way of hanging a candy cane made of pipe cleaners above the solution using newspapers. As the solution soaked up the pipe cleaner, the water evaporated, leaving us with salt crystals!
We looked at these under a microscope and then carried out our own careful drawings of our observations.
Christmas Science was really good fun!
