The more students are able to test the various properties of materials, the better understanding they gain in why we use certain materials for a particular purpose. This lesson allows students to investigate and test the flexibility of different objects. Students will predict, test, and use data collected to rate materials on a flexibility scale.
Students will also practice the skills of justification and apply their learning to real word scenarios!
