Science - Properties of Materials

5Edwards and 5Wood investigated the best material to use to keep Mister Tom's rationed soup pot warm for when he must take cover in his Anderson shelter during a bombing raid. The class used their knowledge of how thermal conductors and insulators work to predict and experiment with which material would be most suitable.
