This is what we tested this week in Eagles.
After exploring different building materials, and discovering that they are all hard and stiff the Eagles investigated my hypothesis that all hard materials can NOT absorb water. They discussed how they could adapt last week’s investigations and what they needed to look for in order to scientifically test the hypothesis. We had a room full of scientists as the discussion evolved into one about the water cycle and states of matter. Ultimately, the Eagles were delighted to prove me wrong when the discovered that some hard materials can absorb water.
