We really enjoyed our heat experiment today!
The pupils predicted what was going to happen at the end of the experiment and we got brilliant guesses!!! There was a lot of questioning during the process and they all actively participated.
They labeled 3 clear jars with different temperatures (cold water, room temperature water and hot water) and filled the jars accordingly. They added drops of food colouring to each jar and observed what happened.
The food colouring spread out the fastest in the hot water jar as molecules move faster when they are warmer.
We then discuss the result and compared it to their predictions at the start of the activity.
