Year 1 Materials Workshop

We completed 5 activities in small groups focusing on what materials were made from and their properties. We really enjoyed the investigation to find the best curtains for the 3 Little Pigs house!

  • Sorting by material...

  • Where shall we put it?

  • What material is the spoon made from?

  • What can we put in the plastic monster bin?

  • Sorting by properties...

  • Choosing where to place our objects

  • Feely bags - describing our object

  • What does it feel like?

  • Which curtains block out the light?

  • Can you see the light?

  • Making sure it's a fair test - 30 cm away from the window!
