Worksheet Overview

There are loads and loads of different materials you use each day: your shoes, your pencils and pens, your knife and fork, the carpet you walk on, the window you look out of - loads! The thing is - where do they all come from? What sort of things are they made of?


In this worksheet we will be looking at a whole variety of materials and working out where they come from, what they're made of. Many you will know already but hopefully there'll be a few surprises!
