    Dear 3/4’s,
    I didn’t even get to see the poll Miss Murphy made because my internet connection is slow.
    I liked being able to get a friend called Mandy jr.
    I learnt that when you put water,detergent and the very, very, very cold water it makes bubbles.

      Dear Viv,
      Yes, I agree. The incursion was a lot more enjoyable because Ben the scientist was so funny. Why was this incursion the best of all incursions? What was your favourite experiment?

    Dear,Miss Murphy
    I loved the science incursion all of the experiment was awesome!
    I learnt when you put liquid nitrogen on to the balloon it freezes. When you blow it goes back to normal. And I liked the What’s the Matter videos it’s cool and I know that air has mass too.

    Dear 3/4M,
    I injoyed the Incrsion i learnt that Nitrogen was -200 degres and that people can freeze themselves with nitrogen and if you use nitrogen gas to pop a balloon it makes a loud noise.

    Dear 3/4M,
    I liked the incursion including the experiments.
    I liked the bubbles the most.
    Here’s something that I typed up:


    All the capital letters make up SCIENCE :).

    P.S: I got a science book that explains matter and liquids, solids and gas.

      Thomas that is a great acrostic poem. I am glad that you are so enthusiastic about our topic!! I really enjoy science too, especially doing science experiments. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for our science project near the end of our topic and our term.
