Synopsis

Metal Exploring the Science of Everyday Materials by Jane Harris, Nicola Edwards

In Science Explorers, children find out about the properties and uses of everyday materials. The series takes an active approach to finding out about materials. Children are encouraged to ask questions about what different materials are like, formulate ideas about how a material might behave (when water is dropped on to it, for instance), and test out these ideas. Where does metal come from? Which metals are magnetic? Does metal conduct heat better than plastic or wood? This book looks at these questions and also investigates musical instruments, recycling and why metals are used to make many everyday objects

Reviews

'An excellent non-fiction (series) for either Reception or Year One. The information is presented in short pieces of text which are manageable for the early reader. The photographs which accompany the text are clear, bright and attractive.'
