This past term as part of our Science curriculum, Year 2 scientists have been investigating various materials and their properties. Students experimented with changing materials based on their properties and then researched which materials would be best suited when building everyday items. We tested materials to see if they were absorbent or waterproof, and transparent or opaque. Finally we tested to match properties to the use of materials in everyday objects. We wrapped up the unit by recommending the best materials to build a tent. With all the rain we had recently you can be sure our tents were all waterproof!
