Education week

On the 21/5/14 we went to Gtac to do some fun experiments with them (but it was also education week so that’s why we went) we did lots of fun stuff and learnt some awesome things and we understood most of the things they said. We started off as a whole group but then we split up into different groups.

Three things I learnt was what condensation is, what happens when you heat something up and that there are water Beatles inside dirty water. Condensation is when a gas turns into a liquid. When you heat something up it either melts or turns into a gas.

Four things I understand was that a solid turns into a liquid, a liquid turns into a gas, a gas can turn into a liquid using condensation and that gas particles bounce around walls and each other. If the gas particles slowed down they would not bounce around that much all they do was slow down and stop I their tracks.

Two questions I have left would be why are there water Beatles inside the dirty water? How was 10 balloons able to fit into one tiny bucket?

And these are my questions what I learnt and what I understand.

 

 

Gtac-reflection.

On the 6/5/14 the people at Gtac came to our school so we could do some experiments with them. So we walked to the science lab and they were there.

There we learn’t about solids and liquids. We also learn’t about how all the particles move around using the play do, rubber bands and plastic cup.

A solid can be in any kind of shape but it needs to be packed together so they can be a solid because when things are packed together it makes them hard.

A liquid can get together then move off then do that with another liquid so basically its like shaking other peoples hands for three seconds and walking away.

When you think of gas you think its just toxic stuff right? well its not you breathe it up everyday, hey but don’t get scared I’m talking about oxygen.

When we did the first activity it  was to see ho a solid particals break up when you move them, break them and even squash them (This was the activity we did with play do.) We got into groups and we had to carry the play do without touching it. The next activity was pretty much the same thing but only with a rubber band.

we started to talk about all kinds of solids and liquids and gases and then it was time to go back back to the future! No it was actually it was time to go back to class.

I found it in my backyard. It was not a her or a he, nothing but an it. It was in my garden and it was making noises. Some of it sounded a like foreign language but it wasn’t, it was alien language. Most of it went bleep bloop and some times it even said destroy this planet. I shouted to it’ no reply. I tried again still no reply. I was about to go inside when it came out of the bushes to meet me. When it looked at me, it realised that the human race is harmless and we don’t need to be destroyed. And then it disappeared.

Federal Parliament Graph No. 2 Luca, Finn and Ruby

over the past few days we have been doing activity’s based on direct and indirect representation in Australia politics and about the three levels of governments. The three levels of government are Federal, State and local!  Federal takes care of national parks and national issues! state care of transport and Local takes care of Local parks and Local libraries and so on.

After that we went into groups of 5 and had to choose a place to choose a place to eat and agree on it. Then the whole class got together to find out what place we would like to go on an excursion! It took us about 15 mins but then we agreed on going around the world, If  the class takes 15 mins to decide on something, how long does it take for the government to decide on something?

Then the next task was to into a group of three and had to fill out a sheet and choose a state! Our group chose W.A. and had to find out the number of members from each houses of our state, and the number of electors from each state! After we put all of our note taking in these two charts  one up the top that  is the house of representations. And the one below  is the house of senate.
