In Science we have been learning about materials. As Mrs Monks is so clumsy and keeps spilling her coffee, we wanted to find out which material would be the most absorbent (soaks up liquid). We tested 5 different materials; foil, tissue, sponge, cloth and paper towel. We made a prediction and then tested them in a fair test. We found out that the foil was the least absorbent as it took more than 10 wipes to absorb the water. We also found out that the sponge was the most absorbent as it only took 2 wipes to absorb the water. We think this is because it has lots of holes so the water gets trapped in them. So now when Mrs Monks spills her coffee, we can mop it up with the sponge.
