Students with hats that would protect them from the sun

In November, Second grade started their unit on Matter. They learned about different properties and how these different properties function. They tested for softness, absorbancy, and strength. They then pretended to be stranded on a deserted island and all they had was a lunch bag, a napkin, string, some clips, a piece of aluminum foil and one rubber band. They then had to design a hat that would protect them from the sun.
