Scientific Thinking

Some excellent scientific thinking in Eagles this week as the children designed their own experiments to prove light travels in a straight line. They were armed only with a torch, a book and a piece of paper. Ruben explained to us the meaning of the word 'hypothesis' and we set about proving ourselves right (or wrong!). We also experimented with what happens when you use mirrors too. Bonny and George designed a mirror cave to see what would happen! With Mr Major, the children learned about Daniel Boone, the Cumberland Gap, the Appalachian Mountains and the expansion of the West - what a busy afternoon!
