Materials - Properties (Investigating)

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 investigating simple properties of materials.

You have investigated materials. In your investigations you have done simple experiments and found out different properties. In this quiz you have to choose which you think will be the best material. Each question asks you to choose between four different materials. Each question is about a simple property of materials - hardness, softness, strength, bendiness, and so on. Can you choose the best material? Which has the best property for the job? How many can you get right?
