Testing Materials in Maple class

We’ve had a fun afternoon in Maple class today.

In Science, the children were given the question, ‘Which material will build the best tower?’ We set up five tables with paper, Play-Doh, straws and paper, plastic cubes and jelly cubes. We made a prediction as to which material would build the best tower and we tested each material with a 200g weight.

Which would be the best?

We soon realised that some materials were better than others at building towers!

Some materials kept bending when we put the weight on and others were very steady.

What great testing skills. Well done Maple class.
