Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Our Crazy Science Afternoon!

After exploring materials last week, we investigated whether materials are waterproof, shockproof or frostproof.

We became mad scientists for the afternoon, armed with a water jug, hammer and freezer we discovered that if we want to make something to bury, like a time capsule, we will need to choose the material carefully.

 To test if our materials were shockproof we hit them five times with a hammer.

 

To see whether a material is frostproof we put it in the freezer. We will look at it again on Monday to see the results. I wonder what we will observe?

We poured water over all of the materials to see whether they were waterproof or absorbent. 

Can we explain what these words mean at home?
