  1. Does the temperature of the water affect the reaction?
  2. Does the size of the bottle affect how many blobs are produced?
  3. Does the effect still work if the cap is put on the bottle?
  4. Does the size of the tablet pieces affect the number of blobs created?

World Around Us - Florence Nightingale

Watch the following video and complete the online quiz.

 

Complete the following sheet on Florence Nightingale's character.

 

Watch the following videos and read the information on how to be a historian.

Imagine you have the opportunity to interview Florence Nightingale. Make a list of questions to ask. Include some that start with each of these words: how, when, why, what, who and where. Closed questions, which have simple factual answers, help to get people talking - but you usually won't get a lot of information. "How old were you when you started school?" is a closed question.Open questions are ones that ask people to give their views. They encourage people to talk about their feelings. "What did you like in your first classroom?" is an open question.

Someone in your family could pretend to be Florence Nightingale and answer the questions. You could also take it in turns so that everyone has the opportunity to ask and answer.

 

Art - Paul Klee

 

Read the following PowerPoint and watch the video to learn more about Paul Klee.

Now create a painting of Florence Nightingale in the style of Paul Klee. Take a look at the following examples to help you.

 

I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful artwork! Email me photos when you have finished and I will put them on this page next week.

    • Am I a verb?
    • Do I start with a vowel?
    • Am I an animal?

    Once you guess the word, you then have to spell it aloud.

Straw Shooter Rocket

 

We put some plasticine into the opening of an empty carbonated drink bottle. We moulded it around the edges to make a good seal, then made a small hole and pushed a narrow straw into the hole. We had to make sure there were no gaps around the plasticine!

 

Then we took a wider straw, pinched together one end and stuck some tape over it to make it airtight. Then we slid the wider straw over the narrow straw. Finally we pointed the shooter away from people and gave the bottle a hard squeeze!
