1. Talk about the word waterproof and what it means.
(It is something that keeps water out. A plastic raincoat is an example of something that is waterproof)
2. Read this information.
Owls do not have waterproof feathers but ducks do. The feathers on a duck are covered in a waxy oil that stops them from soaking up water. If their feathers were not waterproof they would get waterlogged. This means that their feathers would soak up the water. They would not be able to move very well and it would be hard for them to find food. So having waterproof feathers is very important for a duck!
Find out about some different materials in your house and whether they are waterproof or not waterproof. Collect them together first. You could test ,
4. Now for testing time. Drop small drops of water slowly onto the different materials and see if they soak in or not. If they run off the material or just stay on the surface then they are waterproof. Make a table in your book like the on below to record what happens.
