Materials Experiment 

Today the children finished off their Materials topic by completing an experiment. Yesterday we made a prediction about which material would be the most suitable to make an umbrella from. There were 5 materials to choose from including fabric, a paper towel, a plastic bad, cardboard and tissue paper. We discussed the idea of a ‘fair’ test and decided the soaking time and amount of water would remain the same for all materials. Finally, we used what we found out to conduct one final test… making our own umbrella! We hovered the materials over a (willing) volunteer and poured water on top. The children decided that only the plastic would be suitable as an umbrella. ☔️
