Umbrella experiment

Today in science we planned and carried out an experiment. Professor Pole has asked for our help – his umbrella has disappeared! He wanted us to find out which material is the best for an umbrella. Millie thought we needed to do an experiment to find out! We decided an umbrella should be waterproof and strong enough that it wouldn’t rip in the rain.

We discussed which materials would be a good idea and which wouldn’t. We decided glass would be too dangerous and breakable, wood would be too hard to shape and metal would be too strong and might hurt him in a snowstorm!

We made some predictions and talked about how to keep our experiment a fair test.
