Everyday materials: materials matter
This block of resources provides 6 sessions on materials aimed at Year 2. They explore the useful properties of materials with a range of investigations involving absorbency and flexibility. These include activities for finding out which type of kitchen towel or cloth is most effective at mopping up spills, exploring the properties of building materials and creating artwork by exploring the textures of materials. Activities are:
- Mopping up
- Are bricks absorbent?
- Waterproofing materials
