UKS2 Science – Thermal Insulators

Taking precise measurements!

This week, UKS2 tested which materials made good thermal insulators. They were testing to see whether paper, foam or felt would keep water hot. Using a thermometer, they carefully measured the temperature of the hot water in their beakers and recorded the temperature every minute in a table. After the experiment, children from different groups came together to compare data and conclude which material did the best job of keeping the water warm.
