Pre-Prep Test the Strength of Paper in Science

Nov 19 2021

Year 1 and 2 children investigated the strengths of different papers.

They tested sugar paper, tissue paper, wrapping paper, plain paper and paper towels by adding weight 100g at a time until the paper tore and then they recorded their results. They had to think about fair testing and talked about how they made this test fair.
