Learning about Space

May 3, 2019

Pupils at Wallace Hall Primary have been learning about space recently where their learning intention was to investigate how the height that you drop a ball from affects the size of the crater it makes.  In order to visualise this, the class split up into groups to carry out an experiment using a tray of flour with a dusting of cocoa powder, dropping a marble from different heights to see if the size of the crater varied.  The groups recorded their results, compared them and then had a discussion on ‘fair testing’ and variables that might affect results.  Everyone in the class agreed that their practical experiment really helped them understand their learning intention.
