Materials – KS1
Target age range: Years 1 and 2.
Length of activity: 1 hour minimum; 1 1/2 hours is ideal.
Learning outcomes: Pupils are introduced to classifying materials and recognising their properties and uses. They will investigate the connections between materials and their properties. The pupils will also learn about changing materials, whether it is possible and if the changes are permanent.
Talk with slideshow: This interactive presentation will explain to pupils the classification of materials and their properties, in order to help determine their uses.
Hands-on experiments: The pupils will take part in activities to support the ideas discussed throughout the talk. They will categorise the materials given into selected categories, and then identify properties using a set of cards in a game format. This will continue through experimenting with magnets on a scavenger hunt. Pupils will also play a game of ‘pick a pair’, identifying materials and the objects they are used for, and they will investigate heating their own materials and evaluating any changes.
