Uses of Everyday Materials
This term, we are learning about the uses of every day materials.
Task 1 - Video
Watch this video clip a few times:
When you are ready, can you identify some of the objects and which material/s they are made out of. Here is an example:
Game - Silly Spinners
Make two types of spinners - on one there are drawings of different materials – e.g. wood, plastic, metal, glass. On the other are drawings and labels of objects. Spin each of the spinners. Read out what each of them lands on. So you might end up with ‘glass’ and ‘t-shirt’.
- Can you talk about what you think about a 'glass t-shirt'?
- Which of its properties will make it suited to its role and which of them would not?
