Year 2 planned and carried out a science investigation to discover which ball was the bounciest. The balls that the children tested were; a football, a ping pong ball, a tennis ball, a basket ball and a sponge ball.
The children agreed that they needed to drop the ball and then measure on a metre stick how high it bounced. They discussed that it was important to carry out a fair test. They agreed that the same person dropping the ball from the same height would make it fair as well as dropping the ball onto the same surface.
The children all enjoyed the investigation.
