Year 3 Hands-On Science


This term our Year 3 students have been learning about Earth and Space Science, with a major focus on “What Causes Day and Night?” Students have also been developing their inquiry skills, including: questioning and predicting, planning and conducting, recording and processing, analysing and evaluating, and communicating.

 This week, each class had a 1 and a half hour incursion with Hands-On Science to learn more about the Earth, Moon and Sun. Students participated in a variety of experiments, which supported their learning about air pressure, the Earth’s axis, how the tilt of the Earth causes our seasons, the Sun’s gravitational pull and why we experience day and night.

See some of our great experiments below!
