We, in 3rd class, decided to explore the absorption properties of various materials. We first predicted whether each material would or would not absorb the water and then we experimented in small groups. We dyed the water blue to make it easier to see if the materials absorbed the water.
Following our exploration, we then placed some flowers and celery in the coloured water to see would natural materials absorb water as well. Finally, we wrote up our experiment – we had lots of fun! Check out how we changed white flowers to blue and red flowers…. magic!!
