Today has been Science day. We have been learning all about elephants. In our house groups, we have:
• Planned and made structures that will bear the weight of a (toy) elephant.
• Considered the habitat where an elephant will live and discussed why it is important to know what conditions animals need to thrive.
• Predicted and tested different materials suitable for an elephant keeper’s coat, testing for waterproofing.
• Learnt about the different parts of an elephant and amongst other things experimented which ears lost the most heat and predicted how long an elephant’s tail is.
Today has been a lot of fun as well as opportunity to answer all sorts of questions, using our investigative skills to find the answers.
