Science- Paper Bags

Here is an account of the experiment from a 5th class pupil: We did an experiment about how to make a paper bag. We split up into teams and got a €2 budget. Masking tape was 10c and a sheet of paper was 20c. Our group bought 5 sheets of paper and 10 pieces of masking tape. We made a bag and then we went outside and had races with our paper bags and saw which bag could hold the most water bottles. The most was 6.

Science- Parachutes

Here is an account of the experiment written by two 3rd class pupils: Last week 3rd class, 4th class and 5th class did an experiment on parachutes. They had access to bags, string, tape, masking tape, play dough and stick men. They had to trick gravity into slowing down the parachutes fall. Everyone was separated into 8 groups for the experiment. Everyone had two bags to work with, one was big and the other was small. Most people used the big bag, but our group managed to used both the big and small bags. Everyone got about 10 minutes to make the parachute. When they were finished they took it outside in the yard. Everyone got to throw their parachutes in the air when a gust of wind passed by. The team that won was the team that used two bags.

The lucky boys and girls got a certificate and were also told that they were going bowling later in the week. Ms. O Brien's 4th & 5th class did a presentation on Australia. They told us some wonderful facts about the country before singing and dancing along to the "Locomotion"
