Observing Matter Worksheet

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 2 - Lower - 5

A worksheet to practise observing the properties of materials used in a range of objects.

It’s a fun way to informally assess your students’ knowledge of the properties of materials and how these properties can influence the way materials are used.
