Stu Duval visit

Stu Duval came to visit Hamilton East School.  
He told stories and shared his cartooning skills with us.  
We clapped, laughed and cheered all through the two days he worked with us. We were very lucky.
Check out our cartoon drawings!

Melting Plastic

Riley's dad works in a plastic factory. 
He brought some plastic pellets for us to experiment with.  
We mixed coloured pellets into the clear pellets.
We heated them and watched for changes in the pellets.
 The oven started to smoke a lot!
We saw the plastic start to soften and melt 
BUT we didn't get it hot enough to mix the coloured pellets together.
As soon as we took it out of the oven
the plastic cooled down quickly 
AND got hard again.
