Science: A sticky experiment!

Wednesday 29 March 2023

In Science this week, the children planned and created their own glue. The children decided on their variables and then completed the experiment.

This type of scientific enquiry was comparative and fair testing.

We then put our glues to the test! The children added pegs to their pieces of paper which were stuck together using their glue. The glue that held the most pegs was the stickiest. In conclusion, we found out that flour and sugar were the stickiest substances.

Afterwards, the children went on to reflect on their experiment and decided what they would do differently next time. Some responses were: adding more glue between the pieces of paper; changing the amount of substance so it made the glue thicker and trying to add the pegs when the glue was still drying.
