Making the Roof

We investigated which material was best for making the roof.

We wanted to find the best roof to keep the teddies dry in the classroom.


We tried different materials - kitchen paper, hand towels, fabric and plastic.

We put the teddies on the 'carpet' then fixed a roof on top of the bricks.

We used a dropper to squeeze water onto the roof

 Oh dear the teddies are wet!'


The best roof was made of plastic.

' It holds the water on it. The water doesn't go through.'

'It's waterproof!'

'The water doesn't fall down.' 

We are good at investigating...
