This week we fitted in a great science session which got everyone curious and asking questions!
"Do you think we can make raisins dance?"
The question was put up and everyone made a 'prediction' WITH a reason...
"No because a raisin is not alive - it does not have muscles"
"They might if you electrocute them"
"Maybe - when you pour the water over them they will dance as the water is being poured on them"
"Yes if you put them in milk because the fat in the milk might make them dance"
There were many more predictions too - but what was pleasing was the depth of thinking around their reasons...and this is just as important as the actual reason!
I will add the video some of the students took as we were doing the experiment - it really demonstrates what happened when we added raisins to half a cup of soda water.
What we did do as the experiment was taking place was use a shared Doc to collaborate on thinking about these questions...
WHAT DO YOU NOTICE?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
WHAT DO YOU WONDER?
to view the shared Doc... there are some WONDERFUL WONDERINGS !!
