Year 3 Waterproofing Dens Science Trip


We have been investigating the properties of materials.  We planned an experiment to see if we could keep our toys dry within a den made at Highwood Nature Reserve. We gathered a range of natural and man-made resources and set about building our dens following the design we had planned in the classroom.  Each team showed amazing teamwork and negotiation skills during our construction phase.  

Alison then poured a cup of water over each den and we counted to 10 to give the water time to creep in…

The dens were incredibly waterproof and the toys all stayed dry!
