Hokey Pokey


Have you ever thought of how Hokey Pokey is similar to lava? It didn't occur to us, until Mr Hunia (student teacher) surprised us! With making the delicious treat: Hokey Pokey!! I know that you're thinking,"Why on earth,would you make Hokey Pokey at school? Well,it all started in our schools kitchen.

Mr Hunia added in the first 2 ingredients in to the saucepan. Sugar and golden syrup . They began to dissolve in to a golden-brown colour. But as soon as he added in the baking soda, the hokey pokey began to expand slowly It then changed in to golden-yellow colour. The hokey pokey stuck to the wooden spoon, as Mr Hunia stirred the mixture.

Just like scolding lava, hokey pokey is viscous and runny when it is hot! As the hokey pokey cools it is a solid mass and easily shattered, porous and brittle.To us the hokey pokey felt JUST like scoria rock,because scoria rock has little wholes in it like hokey pokey.

"Well here it goes" I said. I took one bite of the hokey pokey we had made, I said, "This is delicious". The hokey pokey tasted bitter and sweet. I sucked all the syrup I could get out of it. It was real sweet, it tasted Magnificent.

We had a great day making hokey pokey. At the end of the day I felt like I learned a lot from hokey pokey and lava. It was a fun experience day.

The Next Step

I think the next movie we are going to make will have better delivering on the message. It will also have a slogan. When we presented our movie we thought that we tried our least best. This time we will have a second chance to improve on our first movie we made. It will have all the improvements above and more.

Taking it to the next step will be kind of difficult for us ,but we will try to do our best for our second chance at trying to make our movie more better.

This is our first movie we made.
