Today the 30th August 2012, we made a Neuron. To make a Neuron you need an a coloured A4 piece of paper, a coloured patty pan, 4 cotton balls, 9 beads and a black pipe cleaner. Neurons help transmit messages to the brain. Neurons are made up of an Axon, Axon Ending, Dendrites, Myelin Sheath, Cell Body and the Nucleus.
In the grade 5/6 area we are doing a subject about Forensic Science. During this term the classes are going to have different Science experiments in their classrooms and even have some Forensic Scientists come and visit. We are going to try and solve a crime that has occured at our school, this crime is the robbery of some Collingwood Football Club Premiership Memorabilia that is owned by the school Principal Mr Grossek, this is very serious crime if you understand Mr Grossek’s crave for the Collingwood Football Club.
On Thursday the 12th of May, 6N made slime out of 3 ingredients: cornflour, water and green food colouring. It was a pretty messy experiment but it gave us a bit more knowledge about solids and liquids and the way the different mollecules react with each other. Mrs Naismith told us that there were two ways that it changed and that we had to figure out the active ingredients for each change. She then told us that we were going to write a science report and include a diagram with it.
