Properties of MaterialsEdit

Practical investigationEdit

Look at the table below and make a tick next to the correct property that tell us more about the material.

To do this you must test the material.

Collect each of the materials and do a test to check if it is strong (does not break or tear easily), and what its mass is (is it heavy or light)

Tell your class how you tested some of the materials.
