Materials - Natural and Manmade Products

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.

Products are made from materials. Some materials are natural and some are man-made. Some materials are dug out of the ground. Some materials grow - cotton comes from a plant, and wool comes from sheep. But some materials are man-made. They are made from other things. In science we can divide products and materials into natural and man-made. See if you know which are which.
