Today in Year 5, we began our new topic, Properties and Changes of Materials.! We learned that any substance that can be used to make something is a material and materials can be split into two categories: natural and man-made materials.
In this lesson, we focused on the properties of materials. Each material has its own set of properties, which make them useful for a range of different purposes. We tested different materials to find their properties. Our tests included: magnetism, hardness, transparency, flexibility and permeability.
