For our science activity this week, Mrs Cogger set us all the challenge to see how we could change different materials. We enjoyed changing materials in many different ways such as, tearing, folding, stretching and snapping. After we had made these changes, we began to ask ourselves the question, were these changes irreversible? Some materials were able to be returned to their original state, but others couldn’t! We also discovered that some materials are a lot easier to change than others. For example, we could easily tear cotton wool, but struggled to make changes to our rocks!
Here are some photos from our changing materials experiment:
