Where do scientists work?


Two weeks ago four representatives from Room 9 went on a field trip to a science lab at the University of Otago.   It is the science lab where Matilda's dad works, doing research about lasers!

We learned about many interesting things on this trip,  and put together a short documentary to share our learning with everyone.  We hope you enjoy the documentary!  Time to roll the clip!

Slime Time!

The super scientists in Room 9 mixed some ingredients together to make slime!  


We carefully watched what happened and talked about the changes we noticed.  




Then we all had a turn feeling the slime and thinking about how best to describe the slime?  (Well... almost all of us felt the slime - some scientists just wanted to look and not touch!)



We wrote about our slime - we tried to include describing words in our writing - we hope you enjoy reading our work!
