Science week


This week is Science week. We did lots of experments like balloon races and two explosions. We went outside and did a coke experiment. When we put the mentos in to the coke it exploded. The first time we tried it, it did not really work but the second time we did it, it nearly touched the roof. We also did the alkaseltzerpop experiment. There was a tablet blu tacked to the lid and when it mixed with the water it made carbon dioxide. The lid popped off because the carbon dioxide had to get out. We had lots of fun. Next week we will write about the experiments the big children did for us!
