Year 4 were investigating properties of chocolate and marsmallows.
We predicted what might happen when we held a piece of chocolate or marshmallow in our hand or our mouth and what might hapen if we put them in a microwave. Would it matter how long we left things? Does the temperature make a difference?
Michael learnt that if you leave chocolate in a microwave for 3 minutes on high it will burn. If you do the same with marshmallows they will spread and go crusty.If you touch them a bit breaks off..
Josephine learnt that chocolate can be a liquid and a solid at the same time.
Natatsha learnt that marshmallows turn into a different form of solid when you put it in a microwave on medium heat for 1 minute.
