Year 4 Science Unit

As part of their Science unit on ‘Change’ students in Year 4 have been learning about ‘heat.’ Students have been exploring how heat affects different ingredients such as butter, wax, copha and chocolate. After observing what happens, they gave reasons for their results and recorded them in their inquiry books. Here is a before and after photo that was taken when some of the students melted butter!


 

 

 

 

 

 

Students were also interested about how copha can be used to make crackle – here is a link to a recipe that you could use to make chocolate crackles at home!
