Inquiry – Materials in Motion


Posted by missdouglas | Posted in Inquiry | Posted on April 29, 2015

Welcome back to Term 2! Sorry it has been so long between posts!

This term we will be learning about ‘Materials in Motion’.

Through this unit we will be developing our understanding of materials and their properties as well as how these properties affect the way they move. We will build on our understandings through investigations and experiments within the school which will enable us to explore our environment, man-made and natural objects.

Today we looked at three different materials and brainstormed lots of uses. Below are some of our examples.


  • tables and chairs
  • shelves
  • cupboards
  • the inside of houses
  • a rocking horse


  • bags
  • bottles
  • toys
  • containers
  • cups


  • parts of cars
  • keys
  • coins
  • buckles
  • part of scissors
