Step 2- Sorting Materials based on their Simple Properties:
In this step we will look at how materials have certain properties which make them perfect for their use
(Example- A chair is made from wood, which is rigid and hard so it can be sat on).
You might like to familiarise yourself with the key vocabulary below in order to sort materials.
Start with describing materials using their properties (example: hard, soft, waterproof...)
Some materials may have more than one property.
The Venn diagram is a good way of representing this.
You can complete the example below or create your own using the key words above.
