Last week Daisy Class were told that Fireman Sam had a problem. Every time he used the hose to put a fire out his hands were getting very wet. He asked us to help him by testing some materials to see which one would work best as waterproof gloves. We tested sugar paper, tissue paper, cellophane and bubble wrap. To test the materials we wrapped them around our hands like a glove and then put them in water. We then checked to see if the water had come through.

The tissue paper did not work well as a waterproof glove.
The water went straight through the sugar paper.
The cellophane worked quite well as a glove.
As as class we decided that the bubble wrap kept the water out the best
