We started the year of looking at the Scientific Method to learn the steps to follow when carrying out an investigation. We followed the steps of the Scientific method to design an investigation into whether Skittles will dissolve faster in warm or cold water. It was a lot of fun and we found out that the Skittles will dissolve faster in the hotter water.
Next, we were learning about Lab safety and how to correctly use some of the different tools in the Science Lab to make measurements.
