Chocolate and ice cream!

In Science the year 4 and 5 class have been investigating changing states. The children were each given a chocolate button to hold in the palm of their hand with their fingers closed around it whilst Mrs Bird read the poem ‘Chocolate’ by Michael Rosen. Once the poem was finished the children opened their hands to a find a chocolate button in a different state!
The children also made ice cream using milk, sugar and vanilla essence which they measured carefully into a small zip bag. They then put this into a larger zip bag which contained ice and salt. Working in their group they passed the bag round and shook it for 5 minutes. The children predicted and discussed what they thought would happen and if they thought the experiment would be successful or not and their reasons why.
