Soda and Sand Experiment

We poured sand into the soda and it burst because of the pressure it gave to the soda. It took its place in the bottle. 
By Krtisti

We shoved sand into the soda, it zoomed up because the pressure pushed it up. The sand wanted the whole bottle to itself so it asked the fizzy to get out. It did not want to get out of the bottle so the sand had to push it out.

We sprinkled sand into the soda and it gave it pressure so it exploded and fizzed. It made the soda want to come out.

By Eiva

The raisins went rising up and down to the bottom. The raisins also floated to the top and sank. We were scientists. We observed and predicted.
By Tumai

Puppet Show

Look at what Room 16's Tamariki have been doing! After reading the story "The Ant and the Grasshopper", we decided to have a puppet show. We each took turns being the characters, story tellers and audience. We learned how to project our voices to say our lines while manipulating the puppets. We also learned how to be a good audience and clap to show appreciation after the show.
