Water Experiments on PhotoPeach

We have been investigating the properties of water in P1A. We wanted to see what happened when we added different materials to water and what changes would happen.
We added flour, spices, salt and oil to water and made gingerbread dough. This was a solid.
We added water to cornflour and made gloop or gluck. This looked solid but when you picked it up it turned into a liquid and was very drippy.
We added sparkles and juice to water and have put the containers in the freezer. On Wednesday we will be taking them out to have a look and see what has happened to the water. We will take photos and tell you what has happened next week.

Some of the children said that they did not eat vegetables but they tried the soup and loved it.
