Testing Materials

To finish off our topic of Materials children were trying to answer the question "Which is the best material to keep us dry?"  We shortlisted four types of materials: tinfoil, plastic, fabric and cotton wool and tested them out in groups observing the changes and results.  Children were using scientific vocabulary such as waterproof, absorbent and translucent.  We then recorded our findings.
