On Thursday we began our explosion unit in science for access. Today`s science lesson involved using a microwave.


At first we talked about what a microwave is and what it does.  Then we talked about different things being microwaved. Things like, metals, butter, eggs and maybe even soap.




The students then made hyptothesis or educated guess about what would happen to soap in the microwave. Specifically Japanese soap and American soap.




Before that they tested to see if these soaps would sink or float. The Japanese soap was heavier so it sank, while the American soap floated.



After the experiment we learned that American soap expanded and got very fluffy, while the Japanese soap burned and was still hard.




So we wrote our findings and drew our conclusions. It was interesting but please do not microwave soap at home.
