The challenge today was to carry water from an esky using a garden pot to fill a bucket which was about 10-15 metres from our esky. We had to work in teams of 6 to work out the best strategy to fill our buckets using a garden pot, which had lots of holes in the bottom of it. It was very tricky.
Cheyne and Bella today showed us how to make fruit kebabs. They told us it was important to soak our kebab sticks in water for a while so they wouldn’t splinter. We had lots of different fruit to choose from to make our kebab and then could chose to put yoghurt on top if we wanted. They were delicious and the girls did a great job teaching us.
Wow , what fun we had today with Trish in the STEAM room. We have been learning about our brain and how it is protected by our skull and the fluid between the brain and the skull. We had a challenge to design a protective cover for an egg (which was representing us. The yolk was our brain and the egg white was the fluid surrounding the brain and the shell was our skull), using only certain materials we needed to design something that could protect our egg when dropped at a certain height. We found all our eggsellent designs failed, as our poor little eggies cracked when they were dropped.
All eggscept one. Bella and Ella’s protective egg helmet withstood the drop test and their egg is still intact. Well done girls!!
