The Dissolving Project

In another Fun Friday- Creative Project, years 1 and 2 experimented with dissolving. They tested materials at home to find out which materials dissolve in water. Then they got creative! They made dissolving pictures by sprinkling salt on paint.  They made beautiful patterns by dissolving sweets with warm water.  Finally, they relaxed with a delicious hot chocolate.  They think that science is tasty and fun!  Follow the link to find out more about solutions and dissolving. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks1-solutions/z7r8d6f
