In Science, we are learning all about ‘Everyday Materials’. Last week we learnt about the different types of properties some materials have such as being smooth, bumpy, opaque, transparent.
Today, I would like you to investigate which materials are waterproof and which aren’t. You will need a bowl/bucket of water and a cup. You will need to pour a cup of water over each item and see if the water is soaked up or if it runs straight off of it.
Which of these items are waterproof? Which of these items aren’t waterproof? (You can think of some of your own too. Record your results on a piece of paper. )
