Are all materials waterproof?
Year 2 undertook their first enquiry based science experiment today. They were asked whether all materials were waterproof. Ahead of our experiment, the children made and recorded predictions. I then showed the children the resources and equipment that we had available to us and asked them how we could undertake the experiment to find out whether all materials are waterproof or not. The children shared some wonderful ideas. Ensuring it was a fair test (by keeping the amount of water we used each time the same), we tested a variety of materials: paper, fabric, plastic and brick. The children recorded their findings in a table.
