Today we had another problem but from Zilly The Zebra this time!! She lives in a hot environment and the sun shines on her black stripes and makes them hot! But her white stripes stay cool. Why is this happening?! Here is a photo of the experiment we will do to test whether black and white colours effect the temperature of something. We will be using 2 cups- one cup will have white paper around it and the other cup will have black paper around it. We will check the temperature each hour!!
But firstly we are drawing our PREDICTIONS - WHAT WE THINK MIGHT HAPPEN. Miss Bryant showed us what a scientific diagram looks like.
There will be more to come on the experiment as we are doing it tomorrow!! Very exciting!!
