Discover which type of kitchen towel or cloth is most effective at mopping up spills. Consider why building materials must be absorbent and which ones fit the bill. Create artwork by exploring the textures of materials and learn all about wax and how to.
KS1 - Year 2 - Uses of everyday materials. Knowledge and Understanding Statutory Requirements. 2d1: identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses. 2d2: find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and.
Science - Key Stage 1 (5-7 year olds) Select a Category: Ourselves Materials and their Properties Plants and Animals Environment Light and Electricity Forces. Materials and their Properties. Changing Shapes of Materials Flash. A useful teaching site to demonstrate how materials change shape when they are squashed, pulled, pushed, turned, stretched and twisted. Children can predict the effects.

Science monkey superhero Dr Brain and a team of young scientists investigate the strength of different materials. All solids have different structures, which means that some are stronger than others. Dr Brain and his Mad Lab team identify two solid materials (wood and polystyrene) and test their strength to see which is more suitable for sitting down on.
