Year 1 Our Experiment

Lesson: Science

Class: Year 1 Year: 2019 - 2020

Year 1 have been experimenting! We used four different materials: metal (tin foil), paper, fabric and plastic.

We were trying to find out which material would be the best to make an umbrella for Teddy.  We tested the different  materials strength by trying to rip them.  Then we put them over a beaker with a teddy inside.  We used a syringe to put water on each material and then watched what happened.  Can you guess which material was the best one to make an umbrella?
