Science Week

First class have been learning about the different materials used for building. We built our own houses with different materials to test which was the best to use. We then tested them against weather such as rain, wind and even testing how durable the structure was. With paper, card and other materials we also tested whether it was waterproof. In the end we determined that the jenga blocks were the best building material out of the ones we used.
