Well. this week there was a big problem in the Broad Heath staff room. The teachers tea bag pot was EMPTY and somebody had accidentally bought loose tea leaves instead. The teachers did not want to use these as they stay at the bottom of their drink and they were afraid they would drink them. They don’t taste very nice!
Year 2 were set the challenge of finding the most suitable for a tea bag! We did not want the tea leaves going to waste!
We decided our tea bag needed to be absorbent and strong.
We tested toilet tissue, tin foil, kitchen roll and greaseproof paper. Can you explain how we tested each material? Here is a video to remind you.
