Science - Testing materials for absorbency

Mrs Goldsworthy set us a challenge today. We had to find out which paper towel would be the most suitable to help her clear up the water that her cats spill over when they get a bit excited. We worked together to plan out an experiment, learning how to plan a fair test. We had to write a prediction to decide which paper towel we thought would be the best one. For this we had to feel and look closely to be able to make a thoughtful prediction. We all had a different job to do when carrying out the experiment and then used the results to help us write a conclusion to recommend a suitable paper towel for Mrs Goldsworthy to use.
