Year 5 Materials worksheets
Ask an adult to provide you with a bowl filled with rice, sand, metal paper clips (or pins) and pasta (ideally penne) all mixed together. How could separate these materials? Ask to use a sieve, some plastic bowls and a magnet. See if you can use this equipment to separate out these solids.
Using what you have learned about air resistance, your challenge is to make the most effective parachute for a toy figure.
When we add some solids to water (or other liquids), they dissolve. Try this simple experiment to see which household solids will dissolve and which won’t.
In this experiment we will be investigating to see if the temperature of the water affects how quickly salt will dissolve in it.
This is an experiment to help you learn about which materials will dissolve and which ones will not.
In this activity you will learn how to clean some water!
The Earth has a weak magnetic field caused by the movement of molten iron in its core. The Earth’s magnetic field acts on a magnetised needle, pulling one end towards the north and the other towards the south magnetic pole. Understand more about magnets by making your very own magnetic compass from a polystyrene pizza base, a needle, a pin and a strong magnet.
