Fabric is a technology that every one of us encounters on a daily basis. Whether it's part of the clothes we wear, or the furniture we sit on, fabric has unique properties depending on the purpose for which it is used. Kindergartners will be exploring many types of fabric, learning key vocabulary that can describe the properties of not just fabric, but many other materials engineers use to develop the technologies we all use.
Kindergartners are stepping up their vocabulary game by expanding the scientific words they know! Using dropper bottles and various samples of fabric (thanks again to everyone who donated some!), they are looking for evidence that the water absorbed into their fabric by looking below it. Words we're hoping to master: ABSORBENT and WATERPROOF! Way to go Kindergarten!
