Primary Science Week

  1. 1. Demonstrate a larger version of this in front of class You need: Glass Tube with lids Pipette (for filling tube with oil) Vegetable oil Food colouring Asprin/ Alker seltzer Water What to do: • Fill the tube 3/4 full with vegetable oil. • Fill the rest of the bottle with water (almost to the top but not overflowing). • Add some food colouring. Be sure to make the water fairly dark in colour. Notice that the food colouring only colours the water and not the oil. Hmmm... • Divide the Asprin tablet into small pieces. • Drop one of the small pieces of asprin into the oil and water mixture. Put the lid on. Watch what happens. • When the bubbling stops, add another chunk of Asprin. It’s just like a lava lamp!

  3. 3. National Science Experiment Professional Development Classroom Activities Community Evening Staffroom fun After School Workshops Book a staff meeting for during this week. • Science Online - Divide readings up for staff to summarise and report back on. How can we do this- what does this look like for our school? • How are we using the Science Curriculum? What do we want our kids to understand by the time they leave us? • Science/Wonder Tables • Integrating Science with Literacy and Maths • Engaging Reluctant Writers with Science – Procedural Writing • Using SOLO with Nature of Science • Nature of Science in the Classroom (self-directed power point presentations)
  4. 4. National Science Experiment Professional Development Classroom Activities Community Evening Staffroom fun After School Workshops Set up trays with instructions and equipment in staffroom for teachers to take away and return Library to set up a science display Students invited to enter Science Week competitions Lunchtime investigations or daily experiments available to be carried out or viewed Invite Scientist (parent if possible) to speak with children during lunchtime Daily science quizzes completed in classes Syndicate/Whole school observations • Coke and Mentos • Exploding Dry Ice • Elephant Toothpaste • Water Rockets
