In 3E we have been learning about rainforests through Literacy, Maths and Topic classes. Water has been one of the central themes as it plays a crucial role in allowing life to be so abundant within rainforests. The children learned that liquid water has special properties, such as being able to resist gravity when poured slowly to the top of a beaker or onto a coin. It will temporarily resist gravity's pull, pooling above the rim of the cup or edge of a coin, until enough water is poured / pipetted and gravity overwhelms the hydrogen bonds between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms. Well done to 3E for carrying out this experiment without turning Garden Campus into a swimming pool!
