Understanding the World

On Thursday we had a letter from Eliza the Mermaid, she asked us to find the right material to help repair her tail as a scale was missing here are some photos of us being scientists

The materials we were asked to check if they were waterproof and would help Eliza while her scale was growing back underneath were:





Cotton Wool


We had to follow a set of instructions for our experiment. We predicted what we thought would happen and then carried out our task.  The two materials that came out the winners were Foil and Plastic because the water didn't soak through and this would give Eliza's tail time to heal and a new scale to grow if she used either one of these 2 materials.
