Materials

 

In science, we have been learning about different materials. We were asked to create a house for the 3 Little Pigs to live in. 

 

What our teachers didn't tell us was that we were going to test the houses to see if they were windproof and waterproof!

 

 

Windproof:

To test our houses against wind we put them on a table (or the floor) and wafted some books to make wind. If it blew away then it wasn't windproof- quite a few of our houses were! So at least the 3 Little Pigs would be safe from the Big Bad Wolf!

 

Waterproof:

Now this part was really fun- Miss Sweeney poured water over our houses! It is safe to say that cardboard doesn't stay waterproof for long!
