Materials - All About Objects

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with materials and objects.

What are things made from? They can be solid, like a brick, or they can be made of liquids or even gases. Some things, like rock and wood, are natural. But other things have been made. The chair you are sitting on may be made of wood, but it has been made in a factory. Many things are made from lots of different materials. Let’s start to find out about materials.
