A boat-filled science week

A boat-filled science week!

Mr. Brooks and Mrs. Galvin’s class, (Class China) are proud to present our classes, Chinese dragon boats! Dragon boats are normally a luminous red coloured boat made out of Guangdong Province wood, which is a very thin type of wood that is as light as a drowned feather.

As we don’t have the special Chinese Guangdong Province wood, we have to use a different kind of wood that is still very light but is named: Balsa wood.

On Tuesday afternoon our class did some science; the first thing that we did was we made a density tower out of liquids. The liquids we’re Not poisonous, but they may cause a tummy bug if they we’re placed in mouth. The liquids we used were: Washing up liquid, olive oil, water, lemonade, vinegar, and the list continues…

Here is a quote from Tom of how he liked the science day,” It was great because you had to mix things and it looked fantastic!” And heres a quote from Stephanie about the engraining part of the week, “It was fun and exiting even though our boats didn’t work exactly how we expected it to be,”.
