Observing the water droplets

The year 3/4 classes have a challenge. To create a package to transport a dairy product to the Home Eco room. The product has to be stored for at least 24 hours and then the package easily opened to use the dairy product. Before they can begin the design the students are exploring all different things about package construction and the materials that make up packages. They have decided their packages might need to be made from waterproof materials that also have some strength.
