IPC: Making Butter

In IPC we have been learning about liquids and solids and the ways that they can change their form. This week the Grade 3 the students transformed cream (a liquid) into butter (a solid).

Step 1: Fill a container with cream.

 

Step 2: Shake it! Shake it! Shake it!

 

Step 3: Enjoy tasty fresh butter!

IPC: Shake it!

We began our new unit with a pre-assessment activity. We provided each student with a set of images of different kinds of food and drink (solids and liquids) and asked them to study their images and create categories. Some categories the students created were: dairy/non-dairy, healthy/not healthy, natural/altered by humans. It was interesting to see the different ways everyone organise their images.
