Melting Moments

In 3-4M we have been studying a unit in Science called ‘Melting moments'. So far we have been able to link our science with literacy in the classroom. We have been exploring how solids and liquids are influenced by temperature, student's experience the way items from their everyday lives can change. We have been using hands-on investigations such as heating cordial, chocolate and oil on the stove to investigate their characteristics. While at home the students explored this with some common materials from home. Sophie was lucky enough to explore the change of sugar when it goes in your mouth, from a solid to a liquid. Nia was able to change the consistency of Coke from a liquid to almost a solid when she learnt how to make slushies in class. We can't wait to explore the rest of this unit!
