Exploring Objects and Materials

This is one time students won’t be told “Don’t touch!” Identifying objects by feel is just part of the fun in this sense-ational program.

Program Description:

Can objects be made of more than one material? Primary students use their senses to identify objects by how they look and feel. How do you make paper, plastic, and glass? Where do these materials come from? Hands-on activities illustrate how materials are produced and recycled, and how they can be fastened together to form objects.
