MEDIUM TERM PLAN: SCIENCE Class:                                                                                                                                                     NC Year:     6 Unit:         Grouping & Classifying Materials                                                                                          Teacher:     Lesson Objectives : Children will be able to... Activities Resources 1 Make conclusions  from tables of data. Identify ways of  grouping and classifying  materials. Suggest ways of  investigating properties of  materials. Sc1 Starter:  Present the table of data with tick to  identify the properties of materials. Ask questions  relating to the data. Main:  Discuss with the children the term ‘property’.  Brainstorm the different properties of materials that  could be used for grouping and classifying. For each  property ask children to identify a way of testing  whether materials have the property or not. Collate  ideas as a class. Introduce children to new scientific  concepts e.g. Permeability, Absorbency. Children to  select 5 properties that they will use to test a material  and to record what the property means and how they  will test it. Data table Materials Brainstorm sheets 2 Make conclusions  from tables of data. Identify ways of  grouping and classifying  materials. Suggest ways of  investigating properties of  materials. Sc1 Starter:  Present the table of numerical data –  Strength of materials. Ask the children questions  relating to this e.g. which is strongest? Main:  Give children a range of materials and ask  them to investigate the properties of each material  (using 5 different properties). Children to record their  results as a tick diagram and then make groups of  materials up from their table e.g. flexible materials Data table Materials Brainstorm sheets 3 Ask questions that  can be investigated  scientifically. Identify the uses of  different materials from  their properties. Sc1 Starter:  Generating questions: I want to test  plastic. What could I test and how? Main:  Discuss why it is important that we know the  properties of different materials. How is this applied to  everyday life? Identify that materials have different  properties so they will be suited for different jobs. Use  the Heinemann Explore CD to investigate the  properties of a range of materials. Give the children a  list of objects e.g. raincoat. Children to record what

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
