Science - Waterproofing investigation
This term, we have been investigating the properties of materials. We have run experiments to see which materials absorb the most water and thought about why some materials are more suitable than others for particular uses. The children were curious to know whether the properties of a material could change, so we tested this by drawing wax crayon onto paper. The results showed us that the was is waterproof but the paper was absorbent. It also meant that we could create some beautiful artwork using this technique! Take a look at the pictures we created below.
