7P Changes of State

This half term, we have been looking at materials and their properties. We have learned how substances can be in three different states, i.e. solid, liquid and gas, and how to identify them. This week, looked at how we can change states of different food ingredients in recipes. We used everyone’s favourite ingredient, chocolate, in our lesson. We heated the chocolate, melting the chocolate from a solid to a liquid, and the cooling it, setting the liquid back into a solid. We used this property of the chocolate, to make cornflake cakes and rocky road.

We split into two groups and worked together to complete our tasks. We collected our ingredients and utensils, measured our ingredients, followed the recipe and commented on the science we observed…

We hope the rocky road tastes better than it looks. However, the best part is always tasting the melted chocolate…

Until next time.
