We conducted an experiment to test the differences between heat bags.


In your first science lab session we carried out the following tasks:

  • Sophie demonstrated how an air-filled balloon and a water-filled balloon behaved differentely when placed over a candle flame.
  • We practised observing like a scientist with a burning candle and a sparkler.

Why are we doing this? Our inquiry topic is ‘Matter changes its state when adding or removing heat.’

Think like a scientist! Leave a comment here based on your scientific thinking. Explain, describe, wonder about what we did.
