Great excitement filled our Grade Six classrooms last week when it was announced that we were hosting the Science Expo to the rest of the Intermediate Phase in the hall. iPads were taken out immediately and the research for the perfect experiment started.

Group discussions took place as decisions had to be made on which experiment to do. Could they explain the science behind the experiment? What would they need? Is their choice of experiment perhaps too costly or too dangerous? Who would bring what?

Once the logistics have been sorted out, each co-operative group were given the opportunity to have a practice round of doing the experiment to their class. During this time photos were taken and the experiment were recorded on their iPads. They then had to put together a keynote presentation on their experiment.

The day finally arrived and the Grade Six Scientists were ready for the Science Expo. They were well prepared and ready to show off. Our little legends were animated during their presentations and were commended by the staff for the way they involved the Gr 4-7 learners in the experiments, making this a wonderful learning experience for all.
