The team at Hands on Science came to Rosanna Primary School on Tuesday and Wednesday to work with all our students, and we all had a wonderful time!
Firstly, we brainstormed words we knew about Weather and then broke them up into 3 categories- Sun/Earth, Air and Water. We learnt about the southern and northern hemisphere, the equator and how we have different seasons, especially in different countries. We discussed these different places using a world globe.
Secondly, we started by learning about the Water Cycle. We sang songs, learnt about the words evaporation, condensation and precipitation. They were tricky scientific words, so we sang them to help us to remember them. We joined a group to participate in many experiments to help us understand the water cycle.
Thirdly, we learnt about how leaves and plants transpire as well and we participated in an experiment where we put leaves in different places, like the fridge, classroom, outside in the sun and found out what happened. We also learnt about hot air, cold water, ice, wind-tornadoes and what happens to all these things.
We had a great time learning about the Weather and the Water Cycle. We made lots of predictions and experiments to find answers! It was great.
Thanks to Angela from Hands on Science for teaching us all in the 1/2 area about these exciting science concepts.
