The more students are able to test the various properties of material the better understanding they gain in why we use certain materials for a particular purpose. This lesson allows students to investigate and test the absorbency of different materials. Students will test, predict, and practice the use of justification during this fun engaging lesson!

This lesson fulfills 2nd Grade NGSS Standards:
2-PS1-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
2-PS1-2.- Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
