Puffins – Properties of Materials Investigation

Posted on by gomersallh

Our next Science experiment was all about investigating how to sort materials.

To start with, the children were split into groups and given a range of materials. They were asked to sort them and initially went for categories like size, shape and colour.

We then stopped and had a discussion about other more scientific ways to organise the materials. The children then went back to their groups and thought about other ways to sort. Examples included magnetism, conductivity, transparency and solubility.
