Science Experiments

Over the last few weeks in science we have been testing properties of different materials. We started by finding out which materials sink and float. We used this knowledge to make boats to test in our outdoor area. We have also set up a sinking and floating station in our outdoor area so the children can continue to test different objects. The following week we were testing materials to see which material would make the best bridge for the gingerbread man. This week we have been looking at materials that are waterproof. We made houses for the three little pigs, put materials on top and squirted water to see if the pigs would stay dry.
