Great God's Eyes

In 3rd and 4th Class, we have been working on our fabric and fibre strand in art. We used wool and chicken skewers to make God's Eyes a Native American piece of art. It reminded us of Charlotte's Web when Charlotte's spins webs in the barn to save Wilbur's life. It is very easy to make. They are really colourful.

Science Week Experiment: Will the egg float in salt water or fresh water?

The children in 3rd and 4th class conducted an experiment today. We wanted to find out wheter it was easier to float in salt water or fresh water. Here is a picture of our experiment. We used two glasses, two eggs, some fresh water and some salt water. We predicted, observed and compared. We learnt that it is easier to float in salt or sea water.
