What will keep the Giant dry?

We have been reading the story ‘The Smartest Giant in town’ today and were worried that the Giant gave away all his warm, dry clothes. We decided to make him some new clothes! But, first we needed to discover what the best material was for keeping him dry.

The children did an experiment testing out different materials. We found that the cotton wool and felt would definitely not keep the Giant dry and the tissue paper very quickly broke when it got wet. The foam worked very well and kept the little animal dry all day.
