Published on 2014 February 26th

Assess your ability to make predictions and explain your observations. Protect a spaceship from metal-munching aliens by identifying metals to feed to them. Perform tests on a range of everyday materials to discover which are metals. For example, test whether wool will conduct electricity. Explain which tests are most useful by referring to the common properties of metals: reflectivity, malleability and conductivity. Print a report of the investigation.
1. Students explore the physical properties of a range of everyday materials.
2. Students use the 'predict, observe, explain' model to gather data on a range of everyday materials.
3. Students identify the common properties of metals as conductivity, pliability and reflectivity.
