Over the next few weeks we are going to be learning all about materials! Materials are:
'the matter or substance that objects are made from'
We use a wide range of different materials daily. These include:
Different materials have different features (called properties) which make them suitable for different uses.
Activities for this week:
- Go around your home for any uses these materials may have and fill in the table. A few have been done for you to get you started! See how many you can complete!
- Discuss what different items around the home are made from and why that might be.
- See how many objects you can find in a minute that are made from a particular material (for example metal or wood).
- Look into recycling and why we recycle materials.
*Challenge: Can you think of an object that might me made from several different types of materials? For example a ruler - a ruler can be made from plastic, metal or wood!
