What are toys made from?: Exploring Plastic Toys

Year 1


SKU: S1IL402003

Explore plastic and the many different forms and purposes it has with your class. Your class will begin by identifying and describing some common toys that have different properties. They will be encouraged to think carefully about why a product’s purpose affects the properties the material needs. Your class will then have the opportunity to sort and describe a variety of the same toys that are made from different materials. Alternatively the children will sort different plastics into categories and see if their peers can use their observation skills to work out what categories the objects have been sorted into.

This downloadable lesson comes with a lesson plan, a slideshow presentation and printable teaching resources.
