Science in Maple Class

As part of our learning about the human body we found out how the nutrients get into our blood stream and our passed around the body.  We learnt about processes called diffusion and osmosis; to help us understand these we carried out two experiments.  The skittle experiment showed us the movement of something from high concentration to lo concentration – in this case the colour of the skittles.

The jelly baby experiment helped us to see how water moves from high concentration to low concentration and in doing so caused our jelly baby to swell up.
