Chemistry in The Classroom with Year 3 & 4

Why does good chocolate melt in your mouth? What is the gas produced when we added bicarbonate soda to vinegar? Children throughout year 3 & 4 have enjoyed measuring temperature with thermometers and found out data loggers make the job so much easier to monitor changes in a long experiment. Melting, freezing and boiling, it was very interesting exploring different materials to find out how they can be changed by heating and cooling them.

The recent snow and ice have also helped us to learn first hand about the water cycle and the processes of melting, freezing, condensation and evaporation.
