Gingerbread House

Check out the house I made out of gingerbread for Christmas. I make one every year. Doesn't it look delicious.

Christmas Lights

Well I thought I would make a few updates over the holidays so our blog doesn't look so empty. So here are a few photos. The other night I went for a drive around to have a look at the houses with the Christmas lights. The photos turned out okay. Don't the houses look cool!

Well done. We did it. What a huge acheivement!

Air Resistance

Today we learnt more about air resisitance. We experimented by seeing which shapes moved the fastest through water, that way we could find out which shapes were areodynamic. We discovered an oval shapes is the best and any shapes with flat surfaces will cause more fluid friction and slow our CO2 car down. I wonder how people will design their car now.

Here is a photo with the shapes in order from fastest to slowest.

It's not a box!

Today when we went to Room 12 they were all sitting in their 'it's not a box'. They looked so cute. After we finished our art some of us used our imginations and sat in their 'it's not a box'. Check out David in his hot air balloon basket.

Buddy Art

Today we went to Room 12 for buddy art. We worked with them on creating hot air ballons. They came up with some great designs. Next week we are going to dye them.
