Science journal

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.
Today in the morning we were doing experiments with slime I think that I learnt a lot because when we were making slime I learnt that in the slime when the particles in the corn starch stuck together it caused the slime to go hard but when you stopped playing with it the particles in the corn flour separated the particles and the slime turned into a liquid. On the rubric I placed myself on relational because I learnt a lot about slime and how to make it and I can explain why the slime turns into a liquid.

Week 2: Balloon Rocket experiment
Today our class has been making balloon rockets. To make one of the balloon rockets you would need a balloon, some string,some tape,a straw and to chairs.
The steps to make a balloon rocket are pretty simple so first you thread your straw thru the string and tie both ends of the string to the chairs tightly. Then you can ether blow the balloon up and tape it to the straw or you can tape the balloon to the straw and then blow up the balloon. The next step is to one do NOT tie the balloon up. Ok now the last step is to bring the balloon and straw back to the start and let go, and that's it that is how you make your own balloon rocket.
I think that my observations are relational because I know what to do to make my observations accurate and reliable. I also think that my inferences are relational because I know how, why, when and what I need to do to make my inferences reliable and make sense.
