Science in Eagles

This term we are taking a closer look at materials and their properties. This afternoon we ran an experiment to see which of the 5 materials, that we had chosen, would be the most absorbent. Each group had a different test to find this out. Group 1 had to make a small puddle of water on the table and lay a chosen material over it and count to 10. Then lift the material to see how much water there was left on the table. Group 2 had to cut their materials into strips and dangle them into a pot of water and see whose had absorbed the most water after 20 seconds. Group 3 tied each material over a cup and counted how many drops it would take until the water soaked through. After the experiments we became professional scientists and wrote about what we found out!
