Materials and their Properties (Project Science Series)by Angela Deighan, Brian Gallagher, Brian Smith, Margaret Abraitis, Michael Toner
Materials and their Properties contains innovative worksheets to teach Key Stage 2 (KS2) pupils about grouping and classifying, changing materials and separating materials. It is one of a series of three books.
The books in the Project Science series closely match the National Curriculum and the QCA schemes of work. Each book contains over 60 photocopiable sheets. The teachers' notes give background information, ideas for extensions, answers for pupil pages, resources needed and teaching/safety notes.
The team of authors includes science specialists, and primary and special needs teachers. They have worked together to produce material that is clearly written, scientifically accurate and which primary school pupils will enjoy.
Materials and their Properties will save you time by providing worksheets to help your pupils investigate a range of materials and other worksheets to assess whether they have understood the scientific concepts. Your pupils will investigate whether materials are natural or man-made, whether they conduct heat or electricity, whether they are dense or light, whether they are opaque or transparent, whether they are magnetic and whether they absorb water.
They will investigate the effect of heat on materials, how to turn a solid into a liquid or a gas, whether the change is temporary or permanent, whether there si a chemical change.
They will learn how to separate mixtures.
They will learn why particular materials are chosen for specific functions, eg making clothes for fire-fighters.
