Today we did coding for 2 hours if you don’t know what coding is coding is when you give specific commands to a computer or a program and command it to do actions or reach a certain goal anyway here is a bit of the lesson:
Summary Of The Lesson:
How We Could Improve This Experience:
Things That Confuse Me
Scratch confuses me because I don’t know the coding/computer language and I don’t know how to read and write the computer language
Things That Excites Me
The fact that I have complete access to learning about coding/programming.
In science, Lilly and I are doing a science experiment on freezing oil. Our science topic is chemistry/ changing matter. The year 5 standards is on our teacher’s blog and the rubric on what we are going to be assessed on is this document – Science-Experiment-Lab-Report-Rubric.
Aim: To see if the viscosity of oil will effect it from freezing and to observe if the viscosity will affect whether it is reversible and the speed.
Hypothesis/prediction: We predict that the viscosity of the oil will make the oil freeze at a very cold temperature and it will take a longer amount of time compared to the water. The viscosity is thick which will affect the way that it is freezes. It will melt slower because the thickness might take longer to get back to its original state.
This is a method download.
First taken out of freezer oil looks like butter
Both melting very quickly, water melting faster
Oil started melting very quickly faster than water
Oil took 22 minuets
Water took 32 minuets
Oil felt oily
Discussions: Oil is a lipid. They freeze at a very cold temperature after a long period of time because lipids can nearly stay in the same form no matter what the temperature unlike water. Lipids don’t have a significant freezing or melting point. They will slow down or stop depending on the temperature. The lipids caused the oil to freeze because our freezer was -10 degrees Celsius
Conclusion: Our prediction was that the frozen oil cubes would melt slower than the ice cubes but it did the opposite. The oil cubes melted 16 minutes faster than the oil cubes. This happened because of the lipids in the oil. They do not need a lot of heat to get to their back to their original state. We also predicted that the oil would freeze and it did. A future experiment we think we could do is a ice experiment we found on the internet. If you would like to do it this is the website – ice experiment
