On Tuesday we conducted an experiment on which paper absorbs most. We put green colouring in the water. Teacher made a goalpost like structure using skewers and an icecream container. Teacher stapled 4 types of paper, kitchen towel, kleenex tissue, hand tissue and newspaper on to the goalpost. We had a discussion on spillls and mopping up. The kids had to pick the paper they thought would absorb most and fastest. The majority picked the kichen towel which turned out to be the winner. Teacher put the goalpost in place and we watched to see what would happen. They really enjoyed the experiment.
