5/6 CW making lava lamps!!

Amazingly, the children in 5/6 CW have had some real fun experimenting in science this half term! They made their very own lava lamps using oil, water, food colouring and a dissolvable tablet. The children followed inftructions to make their lava lamp, using scientific equiptment like pipettes to accuraletly measure 10 drops of food colouring. After creating the lamp, they added the fizzy tablet and let it do it's magic! Ofcourse, it isn't really magic, so the children discussed what was making this happen in terms of molecules in liquids and gasses. We had a brilliant time! :)
