Year 5 - Planning an Experiment

Wow!  What a start to our science learning!


We have been busy learning about forces in motion.  Last week we conducted an experiment linked to gravity and yesterday we planned our own science experiment linked to air resistance.  We had to think of our question, make a prediction and then consider what we would measure. Next, we had to make sure it was a fair test so we chose our variables and non-variables and discussed how it was important to test each way 3 times.


After we planned out our experiments, we got to put them into action with the help of Mrs Knight!  Due to the high winds, we knew it wouldn’t be fair to conduct it outside so with a bit of moving and shuffling we managed to do so inside!  


Take a look at our photos and even our videos of our parachutes falling!
