How is plastic recycled? And is all recycling a good thing? Just two of the themes covered in this KS2 lesson about properties and changes in materials.
This lesson has a linked Lesson Resource file.
- identifying scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments
Properties and changes in materials
- compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets
- demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes
Understand and describe the process by which plastic is recycled
Consider whether all recycling is positiveDOWNLOAD
