Experiment 1: Magic Milk

  1. Food Colouring
  2. Squirt of Detergent
  3. Saucer
  4. Eyedropper
  5. 50 mls Milk
  1. Pour 50mls milk into the saucer.
  2. Drop food colouring in different spots of the saucer.
  3. Put some dish soap into the milk.
  4. Observe what happens.
Rhonda: I think that the colours will be mixed in together.
Soane I think when in put the three colours into the
milk nothing will happen but when we put the
detergent in with milk and the colours, the colours will spread.
Rhonda: My hypothesis was correct because the
reaction that was caused with the milk and
detergent made the colours mix together.
Soane: My hypothesis was correct. I saw that
a tiny squirt of detergent will cause a reaction with the milk.
Colours added into different corners of the milk.
Detergent combined with the milk and the food colouring.

Last day of tech!

Today the Year 8’s from Saint Patrick’s School went to Pakuranga Intermediate for Technicraft.

The art room smelt like paint because there were different coloured paints poured out  on the pieces of paper where Mr.B was standing. We all began by talking about tones because we were going to paint our city landscape with the paint we wanted to use into light, medium and a dark colours.

Mr.B showed us how to make a tone with the colour orange. He took two scoops of orange with his paintbrush and placed it with the white paint colour and mixed it all up. It gave us a light orange. He painted one building. Then he added another two scoops of the orange colours to the same mixture so that it would give a bit of a darkish colour. He painted the second landscape. He mixed another two scoops so that the orange colour can become even more darker. The buildings were shaded with light, medium and dark colours of orange.

The skills that I learnt in art is how to blend colours together and what tint and tones are. Tint are colours that are mixed in with grey to become a dark-ish colour. Tones are colours that are mixed in with white to become a light colour.

Astria: Prompt 3

On a scale of 1-5, how successfully did you problem solve with your partner today?
On a scale of 1-5, I would rate a 5 because I was communicating very well with my partner and it was very easy to work with her. I would prefer that it would be better that we worked alone because it was very easy to work with a partner and it would be better to work alone so that it can be a bit more challenging. My partner and I managed to complete two of our missions and we had had a lot of fun problem solving together.
