Grade 3/4 Heat Experiments

Grade 3/4 Heat Experiments

DSCN1932 DSCN1936

Grade 3/4 students have been exploring heat through a range of student designed experiments. A simple initial experiment saw them measure the changing temperature in a glass of warm and cold water. Using the same thermometer, type of cup and amount of water they discussed the only variable being the initial water temperature.

Following this experiment students designed their own simple experiment. They could change only one variable. Experiments carried out changed the shape of the cup, placed a cup outside or put a cup inside a container of water. Students also learned to create a control sample as a means of comparison. Data was recorded and conclusions were formed.

Grade 3/4 Camp 2017 – Camp Rumbug

Grade 3/4 Camp 2017 – Camp Rumbug

This year’s grade 3/4 camp took place at Camp Rumbug (near Foster North). Students were challenged by a wide variety of activities including abseiling, aeroball, flying fox, canoeing, raft building, orienteering, team challenge and a mud run. Students rose to the challenges and demonstrated the importance of the You Can Do It Keys (particularly the Term 2 focus – persistence). The school newsletter item (including photos) can be viewed by clicking here.

Lots of teamwork was required as well as hard work, a good example of this was the activity groups pulling together for the raft building.
