Houses and Homes

Primary 123 have been enjoying exploring our new topic of ‘Houses and Homes’. We have been looking at types of houses and the materials that they are built from. The children have been particularly interested in discussing the properties of materials and the suitability of different materials for specific purposes. WE have also been investigating whether certain materials float and sink. We had to make predictions and see if our predictions were correct. This week the children began to explore the differences between solids, liquids and gases. They had lots of fun making Oobleck- a substance made from cornflower and water that is a liquid and solid almost all at the same time!
