Y3 The Water Drop Test

Pupils plan and design an investigation to see which of the rocks they have in their sample are permeable or impermeable. The visual clues and equipment available will help them to design their own water drop test.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties
  • NaG - pupils should explore different kinds of rocks and soils, including those in the local environment
  • WS - pupils should ask relevant questions and use different types of scientific enquiries to answer them; set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; gather, record, classify and present data in a variety of ways to help in answering questions
