We have been young scientists in the Kea room.
We have been blowing and observing bubbles.
- Marcus noticed that the bubbles popped very fast.
- Meg found that her wand had too much mixture the first time she tried to blow a bubble, but when she put less mixture on it worked perfectly.
- Harry found out that if you don’t have enough mixture on your wand it will pop before you can blow it.
- Siena adapted the equipment. She made her wand shorter so that it was easier to blow bubbles.
- Jimmy discovered that if you poke a soapy finger through a bubble, it doesn’t pop.
- Aden wondered how he could make big bubbles. Lucas thought you would need a wand with a bigger circle .
- Luca wondered if you could blow a bubble without holding a wand.
- Lots of us wondered what would happen if we changed the shape of the wand. Meg and Lexie tested triangle shaped wands, Jimmy made a star shaped wand, and Harry made a rectangle.
- Marcus decided to make a diamond shaped wand. He thought the bubbles might come out as fat or thin diamonds.
- Oliver made a wand that was a circle with a hole in it. He hoped that he would be able to blow a bubble with a hole in the middle.
- Lochy made a tricky wheel shaped wand.
We discovered that it didn’t matter what shape your wand was, the bubble always ends up round.
