Today The Year 6 cohort learnt about Matter.
You might be asking what is Matter?? Matter is everywhere on the earth and universe anything that takes up space is matter.
If you where on the moon your weight would be 16.5% compared what you weighed on earth this is because the moon has a different surface to earth. weight can change where you are but your mass would stay the same way which means the shape of your body would not change even if you where lighter.
All matter is made of a substances called elements. All elements are made of units of matter called atoms.
here are the 5 elements
and Bose- Einstein condensates which is an element that was man made in 1995 that is just one big atom it is -270 degrees which is very close to absolute 0 which is -300 degrees.
Also all matter has volume wither you can see it or not so that means air has weight so elements have shape space and mass.
You can see a solid because it has mass and has a definite volume and its atoms are tightly packed together liquid has mass the atoms are further apart and gas will take the shape of its container and the atoms are far apart at the end of the lesson we had to put some things into categories
not matter matter
fire tomato sauce
I hope you learned something because i know i did.
Today we learnt about Chemical/Physical change
our first experiment was burning a piece of paper Mr G started my crunching it up then he ripped it up then he burnt it. When he was scrunching it and ripping it it was physical change because it was the same form but when he burnt it was impossible to make the same again so it is chemical change.
Chemical change: is a process in which at least one or more substances are used together into one or more new and different substances.
Physical change in which the form of matter is used but one substance is not transformed into another so it stays the same.
Then we did a quiz to see what answers we would get here are a couple questions:
water loss due to sweat chemical physical
cleaning your teeth with tooth paste chemical physical
sun tanning chemical physical
We also learnt about the safety for our experiment tomorrow
like no breaking the test tubes
thank you for this amazing experience loved it!!!
