Why Won’t It Work?

Today in Science we discussed the importance of selecting the right material for the “job”. To help students further understand this concept, we imagined what it might be like if a pillow was made out of metal. I drew a picture to show what it might look like (complete with a grumpy sleeper). Then the students brainstormed reasons why it won’t work.


After, the students worked on two different scenarios and tried to identify why it won’t work.
