Year 3 Homework- Science

Science: Rocks and Fossils

This week there is a simple experiment for you to carry out at home! For this experiment you will need an adult to help you.

Soil Mixing with Water

First fill a quarter of a small empty water bottle with soil.

Then fill the rest of the bottle with water.

Shake it well and leave to stand for a few days.

Draw and label a diagram of your bottle.

Key questions to think about and record:

  • What do you notice over the following few days?
  • What different layers can you see?

Have fun!
