This video is about sorting and grouping materials based on the properties that are observable to us, such as colour, texture or flexibility. It encourages students to think about suitability of materials for different purposes through examination of things like paper, wood, plastic, metal, glass, fabric, and rubber. Every single object is made of different materials that have observable properties. This video shows a lot of different materials and how they are both similar and dissimilar to each other because of the properties they have. It sorts and groups materials based on observable properties such as colour, texture, and flexibility. Students are encouraged to think about the suitability of materials for different purposes, such as clothing and housing, through the examination of materials such as paper, wood, plastic, metal, glass, fabric, and rubber.
Aligned with Next Generation Science Standards: 2-PS1-1: Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Clarification Statement: Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.
Supports IAS K.PS.1: Plan and conduct an investigation using all senses to describe and classify different kinds of objects by their composition and physical properties. Explain these choices to others and generate questions about the objects.
