Is it waterproof?

posted 18 Dec 2012, 03:42 by Administrator Goggins Hill
In Senior Infants we learned all about water and things that are waterproof. If something is water proof it will not let water through. We did a test to check if a sock, a glove, a paper bag and a plastic bag were waterproof. First we made predictions about whether they would let the water through or not, then we did an experiment to check if our guesses were correct.

The plastic bag did not let the water through.
The sock did let the water through.
The paper bag stopped the water for a little while but the it came through.
The rubber glove did not let the water through, that is why is keeps your hands dry when you do the washing.
