Real Life Material Posters!
Instead of drawing and labelling pictures of objects made from different materials (to show what we have been learning about) the children collected a variety of objects from around the classroom and the year group to talk about. These were discussed when they were brought to the table (what they were made from, why they were made from that material, what other material could have been used etc) and then labelled. The discussions and vocabulary used during these sessions were very interesting and wonderful to listen to. Well done!
We talked about what the objects were made from.
We talked about why certain materials were used to make the objects we had chosen.
We talked about materials that might have been used a long time ago.
We had to find objects that were made from different materials.
Why is the robot made from plastic and the toy dog made from cloth?
