Properties Hunt: Materials and Their Properties

This activity is all about students exploring the properties of different materials in the outdoors. This lesson can be done anywhere, from the beach to your garden.

If access to the outdoors is limited you can easily adapt it to be done inside. For this activity students will find items matching the properties on the sheet and record what they’ve found by either writing or drawing.

Encourage students to think carefully about their decisions. What makes something heavy? Would that be heavy for a giant?
