Activitat cicle superior- SCIENCE (Level 6)

LET'S SEE SOME FUNGI!

The Level 6 students learnt about fungi in Science. Firstly, they learnt about penicillin and its relation with fungi. They realised that penicillin is a substance produced by a fungus called Penicillium Notatum that kill bacteria. Then, they also learnt that there are different species of this fungus (Penicillium) that we can find in some cheese such as Gorgonzola or Brie!!

HOW WONDERFUL ARE LIGHT AND COLOURS!

Last Thursday, the students of Level 6 visited “CAIXAFORUM LLEIDA” where they took part in different activities related to LIGHT. They experimented in groups with different equipment and techniques about light and colours. They put into practice what they learnt about this topic in Science. They had fun and learnt how surprising the light that surrounds us can be!

EXPERIMENTING WITH LIGHT AND HEAT!

The students of Level 6 experimented with light and heat in Science. They realised that white light is made up of seven colours through an activity called "Newton`s disc". When the disc is rotated, the colours fade to white. Isaac Newton demonstrated that white light is a combination of the seven different colours found in a rainbow. They enjoyed this activity!
Moreover, they experimented with heat in groups. We made two funny experiments:
1) A heat conduction experiment with hot water and butter (the students discovered that metals are good heat conductors).
