Materials in Science

The children used their senses to investigate different materials this week in science. We blindfolded some willing volunteers and they had to describe an object and say what they thought it was made of. “It’s heavy and cold, so I think it’s metal,” said one child. “It feels rough and it’s quite light, I think it’s wood,” said another. We then went on a material hunt around our classroom and outdoor area, and found lots of examples. We also learnt about some types of plastic masquerading as other materials, such as plastic made to look like wood. “That table is made of plastic pretending to be wood!”
