How much water can a dry sponge soak up? 2SMI2P3

3
Sponges are used to soak up spills, and I’m wondering just how much they can soak up compared to how much the sponge itself weighs. In other words, I would like to compare the mass of the sponge to the mass of the water it can pick up. 3SMI2P3

4
How could you find out how much water this dry sponge can soak up? Talk in your groups and plan how to use the balance to answer the question. Recorders are to record the plan on a piece of paper. Getters give each person a piece of white scrap paper. 4SMI2P3

5
When I see your plan I will have the getters get the materials. 5SMI2P3
