This collection of activities can be used in countless
ways. I have provided a set of bulletin board chart
displays with a specific material (metal, wood,plastic, fabric, rubber, paper, clay, leather) and corresponding
name labels. These can be used as a display and/or
children can play a game and sort the property labels
to match each material. e.g rubber – stretchy, flexible
I have provided an assortment of smaller pictures
(which can be laminated for whole class or simply
copied for each student) to be used as a sorting
activity. I usually have the children tell me how to sort
them and write these down and define these as the
properties of materials…there is no right or wrong
way to sort them.!
The property words can be used to build vocabulary
as flashcards also.
