Maths & Science fun in 2nd class

Water has been our theme this month in Shelley’s 2nd class. Capacity has been our topic in maths which all students measured, compared and poured different amounts into various sized containers. We then completed projects in our project copies on this using found measures at home.

In our science experiments the common theme was also water- We made lava lamps using oil, water, food colouring and a secret ingredients that made the oil bubble into the water. We also discovered that oil and water do not mix! Then using Plasticine we had boat races to see who engineered and constructed the best floating boats. We all did really well in our designs floating boats. Using food colouring we watched flowers change colour as the flower drank the water.
