Another awesome resource from Teaching Packs. Everything you need to teach this short science unit about the properties of materials. I love the guide for sharing on the board, what a time saver! I use the other resources in the pack to make a 'materials' center for students to use during rotations.

I used this lovely pack with a second class group just before we carried out some examples with ice cubes. I am a huge fan of all the materials provided by Teaching Packs as the images are realistic and the children can make real connections to what they see in the presentations.

Thanks again for another great resource which I will use over and over again!!
