We love doing experiments!

This week we began our science work on absorbency. I gave the children a mystery power (magic snow) and they had to measure and pour in 100ml of water. They were fascinated to see how the powder absorbed the liquid and multiplied in size. We then discussed what other items we know that are absorbent. We discussed items such as towels, sponges and nappies. Then we conducted an experiment to see which brand of kitchen towel was the most absorbent. We made sure we were conducting a fair test and also made predictions.
