Absorbency Experiment

Today we had a challenge!  Snowball kept spilling his water and we needed to find out which material had the best property for absorbing it.  First we made our predictions, then we discussed how to test the five materials, making sure it was a fair test. 

We decided to use the same size material, the same amount of water and dip the paper for the same amount of time.  We worked in pairs, taking it in turns to dip our different papers.  After we tested each material, we coloured in the results immediately on our bar chart.  We looked at our results and made a conclusion about what we discovered.
