Warming up to Science in Y4/5G!

Monday 29th September 2014

Science in Y4/5G is all about learning through hands on investigations and experiments! Today we were testing what would be the best material to keep the Lighthouse Keepers cup of tea warm for the longest.

Using digital thermometers, and five mugs filled with warm water covered with various materials, the children took the temperature of each mug and recorded their results in their tables.

Can you predict which material would make the best thermal insulator?
