Science - Using Models To Test Water Resistance

In Science, this week, we have been learning about water resistance. We set up an experiment that would test which plasticine shapes were the most and least water resistant using large cylinders of water. We designed our shapes and begun making them, using plasticine. Shapes that were more streamlined  had less water resistance and fell quicker. Shapes that had flat faces or were bulky  had more water resistance and they fell really slowly. Well done Year 5.
