Today, in Science, we investigated a material called plastic. We identified the characteristics of plastic as a material and brainstormed things that are often made using plastic. We learned that many toys are made from plastic because it can be made in many different colours and is light (so it is safe for kids).
After, students were told they could work in teams to build structures… on one condition – they use only tools made from plastic. Luckily, they found a wide range of tools in our classroom that fit the criteria.
