A trip to the North Pole…

Standard

As part of our Fashion topic, we spent an afternoon looking at different types of insulators, and thought about what would keep us warmest if we went on a trip to the North Pole.

We started our experiment with 4 ices cubes, and used cotton wool, newpaper, bubble wrap and tin foil as the different insulators for each. We left our ice cubes in a warm spot and thought about what would keep the ice cube coldest for the longest.

It turned out that the newspaper did not make a very insulator, as nearly all of the ice had melted. We found that the cotton wool kept the ice cube cold and so decided that it was the best insulator.

If we went on a trip to the North Pole, we definitely wouldn’t be wearing a newspaper coat!!
