Class 4's Super Science

Class 4 were set a challenge this term, to find out which material we can use to make a pair of space boots for Buzz Lightyear for his journey to Mars. We had to ensure that the material we chose was waterproof so that his feet don't get wet. 

We had to work together to come up with a question for our investigation, we decided on "Which material will be waterproof?". We all made predictions before deciding on how we were going to test this out.

We got the materials and poured a small amount of water over them, whilst someone held their hand underneath. If their hand got wet that meant that the material wasn't waterproof. 

We recorded our results in a table and all agreed that the best material to make the space boots out of would be plastic.
