Science: reversible changes

Thursday 25 April 2024

In Science, year 5/6 have been learning about reversible changes.

We discussed how we could separate salt from water after making a salt water solution.

The children agreed that through evaporation we should be able to extract the salt. We decided to observe our experiment over a series of days. The picture shows what happened to the salt water solution over three days.

Help at home: discuss other reversible/ irreversible changes. Plan some of your own experiments to check whether a change is reversible or irreversible.
