This week 1B became super scientists and explored a range of materials. We talked about what a material is and so many children had such fantastic ideas! As a class we then discovered how we could distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made.
We found the word distinguish quite tricky to say and understand at first - but we kept practising and soon we remembered that it meant to tell the difference between things.
1B went on a material hunt around the room with a friend, and I was so impressed! I had no idea how many materials were around us all the time! Just like wood, plastic, metal, rock and glass! We then made sure that we could distinguish between the material from which the object is made and the object itself.
Mirela found a water bottle and she knew the material it was from was plastic. Go girl!
Can you find any different materials at home or in school? Come and let me know if you can!
Good luck! From Miss B. x
