House on Stilts

We decided to design and create a house built on stilts.  Working in pairs we used cardboard, plasticine, sellotape and paint to bring our designs together.  We learned that combining the different materials helped our houses to remain strong and  up right.  Check out the photos to see our progress.

Making a Lava lamp

Mrs. Kelly’s class took some everyday objects and made a lava lamp.  All we needed was: a litre bottle, some water, vegetable oil, food colouring and some Alka Seltzer tablets.  We learned that oil and water don’t mix.  Oil is lighter so it sits on top of the water.  When we dropped the alka seltzer into the bottle it caused a chemical reaction with the water.  This produced carbon dioxide which makes bubbles in the lamp.  Take a look at our creations.
