Procedural Writing

Chunky Chalk

This week Room 6 has been busy following instructions to make their own chalk. 

How did we make it?
You need:
1 cup of plaster of Paris
1/2 cup of water
Coloured dye
1 plastic cup
1 spoon
1 ziplock bag

1. Put one cup of plaster of Paris into your plastic cup.
2. Add 1/2 cup of water.
3. Add a few drops of coloured dye.
4. Mix with a spoon until the mixture is smooth and fizzy.
5. Pour the mixture into a medium sized ziplock bag.
6. Hang bag on a line with a peg and wait 24hrs until the mixture is completely dry and hard.
7. Remove it from the ziplock bag and enjoy using it on the concrete.
