Cool chemical reactions

In Science this term, Mercury class are looking at the properties of different materials.


In our first lesson, we discussed different properties and came up with different tests we could use to test these properties on a variety of materials.


We were then given a mixture of different materials and we used their properties to come up with the best way of separating them.


Today, we looked at reversible and irreversible changes in materials and studied what happened when we mixed vinegar and milk together. We managed to make a different material, called casein, which is a type of plastic.
