This term we are trying to answer the question: What could Traction Man's playground be made of? You can do these activities over the week.
Activity One: Go on a material hunt round your house! We want you to look for these materials: paper, wood, cardboard, glass, metal, fabric, plastic and rock? Make sure to send us a photo of all the objects you find. If you don't know what these materials are or how they look, watch this video first:
Activity Two: Can you sort the objects on this sheet into the materials they are made of?
Activity Three: Can you name the materials of each object on this sheet? Use the word bank to help you.
Activity Four: Today we are thinking about the properties of different materials. The property of a material is something about it that we can measure, see or feel. The key words we will be using to describe materials are: soft, hard, heavy, light, stretchy, stiff, smooth, rough, bendy, rigid, flimsy, durable, waterproof, absorbent, opaque and transparent. Watch this video to learn what each word means.
Then, try this activity matching the vocabulary to their definition! https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/activity/item1137912/grade1/module1128907/index.html
