Y1 Identifying Materials (without looking!)

Pupils have to identify objects and the materials used to make them by touch only. Objects are placed in a identification bag and the pupils have to describe what they feel.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made.
  • NaG - Pupils should explore, name, discuss and raise and answer questions about everyday materials so that they become familiar with the names of materials and properties such as: hard/soft; stretchy/stiff; shiny/dull; rough/smooth; bendy/not bendy; waterproof/not waterproof; absorbent/not absorbent.
  • WS - identifying and classifying.
