For curiosity week Year three Bats have been exploring gold, but what is it?
As discovered through independent research, the children defined gold as:
- an element in the periodic table
- a shiny yellow metal used for jewellery
- a rare material, found close to the Earth’s core
To help people understand more about the science of gold, we created models of a gold model. This meant making 79 protons and 118 neutrons for the nucleus and 79 electrons, which would orbit the central nucleus.
Take a look at the mini chemists in action.
