Science Mon

This week is a Science investigation

You will need:

a small cuddly toy-preferably a little teddy

a pot or jar

an elastic band

four different materials to test (one waterproof)


Ted’s Problem: Look at the Power point if you can, to introduce Ted and his problem. Ask your child how they could help Ted. Explain that you could make him an umbrella but you’re not sure which material would be best to use.


This is what your child should learn:

I can look carefully at what happens to Ted.

I can record what I see.

I can test different materials by dropping water onto them, in a fair way.

I can record what happens.

I can use what I know to choose a suitable material for an umbrella for Ted.

I can explain why the chosen material would be a good choice.
