As part of the Discovery Science project, Room 22 completed an experiment testing a variety of materials for starch. We had a lot of fun participating in this experiment. Firstly we found out what starch is. We then placed a variety of items onto paper plates. We mixed some iodine solution with water. The children recorded their predications in their Science copy before carrying out the tests. Some lucky children had the opportunity to test the materials for starch. If starch was present the item would turn a blue/black colour. If starch wasn’t present the iodine would remain the orange/brown colour. The children then recorded the results in their Science Copy and drew corresponding pictures.
