Science ‘Everyday Materials’

Watch the materials video clicking on the link below:

https://youtu.be/xOKr462HLc0

Children may think that material means fabric so this song (with actions) will help reinforce the fact that there are many different materials used to make the things around us. 

Suggested activities:

  • Make some picture cards to show the materials and have children hold them up when they name them in the song to help learn the names of everyday materials.
  • Go on a ‘Materials hunt’ and explore your house to find different objects made from each material.

At this age children may still find it hard to differentiate between the object and the material from which it is made. Can they hold up an object saying what it is and what material it is made from?
