Year have been working hard this half term in science, investigating materials. Last week we were challenged to find the best material to build a toy boat. We knew that that material had to be waterproof so that it didn’t absorb any water and by testing how long it took each material to absorb water and sink, we found that the aluminium foil was the best material tested.
This week, we were asked by a Goomba to help him build a strong roof that would help keep her eggs safe from predators that were trying to stamp on his home. We took part in a fair test to investigate which material could hold the most weight and would therefore be strong and sturdy enough to protect the eggs.
