Our Question was...

An important question we had...

How will we make it a fair test?
Speech Bubble
We will did this by keeping the TIME the same.
We will checked how much the ice had melted with each of the materials after 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes we observed how much smaller in size the ice had gotten.
We also checked the amount of meltwater from the ice.
We took note of our observations on a piece of paper.

We then compared our notes on each of the materials to compare them and decide which of them was the best insulator
We found that tinfoil was the best at keeping the ice from melting!
We displayed our findings with a poster.
