Paper and Water

Tuesday brought us back to the science lab to investigate what happens when water is placed on paper. We used five types of paper samples for our investigation:  newsprint, chipboard, waxed paper, paper towel and corrugated paper.  First, we made predictions about what would happen to the samples if we added water to them.  Then, we put drops of water on each of the paper samples using an eyedropper.  Finally, we waited and observed.  Wow!  The results were exciting!  The paper towel was the most absorbent and the waxed paper was the least absorbent.  Water made the color of some of the paper samples change.  It was a really fun activity.
