What would keep Columbus dry?

October 4, 2017

We have been learning about Christopher Columbus’ journey. Some of his crew were getting fed up and wanted to throw him overboard! We did an experiment to see what material would be best to keep Columbus dry if he ended up in the ocean! We tested cling film, tin foil, tissue paper, kitchen roll and a plastic bag. Which one do you think was the most waterproof?!
