BP Challenge

On Friday we did a BP Challenge we had 6 plastic bags, 2 metres of cello tape and a pair of scissors. We had to make a raincoat that was wind proof and water proof, we had 20 minutes to complete the challenge. Afterwards if we wanted we could have our jacket properly tested for how waterproof it is, Miss Tangney poured water over us to test this. It was a fun challenge and we worked well as a team, it worked a lot better if we planned what we were going to do before we started.

Science

For Science we have been doing our free choice where we chose something out of some options.
Tegan and Antonia did an experiment to do with crystals.
They put salt in a cup of water and tied string to the middle of a Popsicle stick and lowered the string into the water and the salt will form crystals on the string.
