Everyday Materials

Key Question: What is the most suitable material?

 

 

In this unit we will describe and test the properties of everyday materials including wood, plastic, metal, glass, brick, paper and cardboard.  We will learn about the uses of different materials, then go on to compare the suitability of different everyday materials for different purposes. We will explore how objects made of some everyday materials can change shape and how the recycling process is able to reuse some everyday materials numerous times.

 

By the end of the topic pupils should be able to:

 

  • identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses
  • find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching
