Year 5 - solubility investigation

This week, the young scientists of Year 5 embarked on an engaging investigation to explore the solubility of various materials in water.


Armed with curiosity and beakers, they carefully measured and mixed a diverse array of substances – from sugar and salt to sand and coffee.


Observing with wide-eyed wonder, the students noted how some substances dissolved completely, forming clear solutions, while others stubbornly refused to budge in water's embrace. Through this hands-on experiment, they grasped fundamental concepts of solubility.


This engaging experiment not only fostered scientific skills but also involved the ability to work well in a team, which the children did magnificently well.
