Year 2 - Absorbency Investigation

Date: 14th Nov 2023 @ 4:30pm

Today, in Science, we had a problem to solve.  Mrs Jones-Boast wanted to know the best material to help mop up spills in the dinner hall.  We discussed the problem and decided that the material needed to be absorbent. We then planned our investigation, thinking about what we needed to change, what we will measure and what we needed to keep the same to ensure a fair test.  We also consolidated our maths skills by using a ruler to measure our results.  We found that the most absorbent material was felt.  The tinfoil and the cellophane were non-absorbent because they didin't absorb any liquid.
