Reebops in P7 Science

In Science this week, P7 investigated inheritance and variation through Reebops -imaginary animals, made from play  dough.

The new proud parents learned the relationship between genes and inherited traits and how hereditary information is passed from one generation to the next, and how the physical appearance of offspring can be determined by combinations of genes received by parents.

Have a look at some of our adorable offspring 🙂

Chromatography in P7 Science

In Science Primary 7 have been looking at methods of separation.  They looked at distillation and filtration as ways of separating some materials and were set a challenge to separate ink particles using chromatography.

They learned that the ink separates through water at different speeds due to having different weights – this is how the patterns are created.

Their challenge was to guess the black pen I used out of 4.  Most groups solved the puzzle correctly 🙂 Well done.
