Everyday Materials

In Class 1 we often spill water from our water bottles, so we have been testing paper and material to see which are the most absorbent. We did this so that we know the best material to use to mop up the water quickly.
We attached strips of the materials which we were resting to a ruler. We had to make sure that the strips were all the same length. Then we drew a line across all of the strips and dangled the ends into a dish of water. We thought that the most absorbent material would be the one to soak the water up to the line first.
