Our Blog

We are a year 5/6 (9-10 year olds) class from Bairds Mainfreight Primary School in Auckland, NZ.

You can see some of our learning that took place in Room 12 in 2010 and 2011.

NB: I have moved to a new school now so this blog is no longer active. You are still welcome to comment and look at the great fun we had over the past two years.

Thank you for all the lovely comments :)

Why is rain not salty?

We were talking about the water cycle and how the sun evaporates water from the ocean. Then we wondered why the rain wasn't salty. Mrs Jorgensen showed us how to figure it out by doing an experiment.

We dissolved some salt in some water and put it out in the sun to see if it would evaporate.

After lunch we had a look at our plates and look what we found!

The sun evaporated the water but not the salt...
