Science - Conductors of heat

Science was lots of fun because the children had to predict which bead would win the bead race?

Millie said "We had to put a blob of margarine onto a metal fork, plastic spoon and a wooden lollipop stick.  Then we stuck a bead onto the margarine and put them in a pot of hot water.  After that we looked at them carefully and predicted which bead would fall into the water first. Nothing happened to begin with but the metal spoon gradually got hot and the margarine started bubbling where it was melting. The metal fork won!"
