This is the second half of our materials unit and this term we will learn to use touch and sight to identify a number of simple properties of materials, and test materials such as paper and fabric to compare their properties. We will also learn to compare the properties of liquid water with frozen ice with lots of hands on practical opportunities!
The highlight of the term will be investigating the best material to make a slingshot out of and then making our own! Which material will be best? Why? How will we measure and record our results?
Take a look at the video below to learn how to make a sling shot. Perhaps you could try this investigation at home as well?!
