Science - creating new materials

We had a lovely scientific afternoon today - watching and explaining experiments where new materials were created.

We watched as carbon dioxide was released from a solution of bicarbonate of soda and vinegar, we were amazed as a balanced ruler became unbalanced as a match was burnt, we found carbon deposits on a spoon that had been held in a flame and we saw oxidation in action in a rusting demonstration.

We then attempted to use science to explain what we saw happening each time. Please have a look (and listen) to our work by exploring the Abracadabra page on our class wiki - here.
