What material will keep ice lollies the coolest?

Our class investigated 'what material will keep ice lollies the coolest?' We used 5 different materials: newspaper, tinfoil, a J-cloth, a plastic bag and kitchen paper. We made predictions for which ice cube would stay the coolest and which ice cube would melt the quickest. We wrapped each ice cube in the above materials and waited patiently. We discovered that the ice cube wrapped in newspaper stayed the coolest and the ice cube wrapped in kitchen paper was the quickest to melt. In order to make it a fair test, we ensured each material was the same size and ice cubes were the same size.

2nd Class Visit Toodlelou

Our class had an exciting visit to Toodlelou today where we learned all about living things and their habitats. We designed a habitat and used clay to make our living things. We also completed an experiment involving the concept of sinking and floating. We designed an oxygen tank for our Lego men and tested whether the Lego man would float in the water with his oxygen tank. It was a great day and so much fun. Thank you Lindsay for such an exciting workshop. 馃榾

What makes a boat float?

We were learning about forces and energy and what could make a boat float. We investigated this by designing a boat that would float and carry at least four passengers. It was very tricky coming up with the best design and shape for our boats but we managed to get some boats to float without sinking. One group even managed to fit forty passengers!!馃榿

Visit to Oranmore Library

2nd Class visited the library on Tuesday. They chose from a variety of books and will have lots to read during DEAR time in class. The boys will be able to swap the books with each other once they are finished. We are looking forward to hearing some of their reviews in the near future.
