Our concept theme for Term 2 is "Transformation / I'm A Scientist." We decided to see how liquids can transform into solids. Our experiment was turning cream into butter by just using an empty mason jar and a 300ml bottle of whipping cream.

|Pouring the cream into the mason jar.|
|After vigorously shaking the cream for just over 9mins, our cream solidified, changed colour and turned into butter.|
|Surprisingly, we discovered that buttermilk became a by-product of our experiment.|

Miss Ivory made our yummy pikelets for us.
