We talked about different characteristics of materials: which are waterproof or absorbent, reflective, rough or smooth, hard or soft, transparent, translucent or opaque, hot or cold. We played a game of pass the parcel where the winner each time had to describe the material they had before unwrapping it to get their prize.
Today we looked at these materials with our digital microscope. We found this very interesting.

We also examined our hair, fingerprints, scabs and clothes under the microscope.
We were surprised at some of the designs the cloth has under the microscope.
