Social Studies, Science, and Health Units
The next 3 weeks we will be learning about the Physical Properties of objects.
What kind of questions can help us sort objects? * What are physical attributes and how can we use them to sort objects? * Why do we sort objects? * How can sorting objects help us in the real world? * How can we use our senses to sort objects? * How similar object’s attributes make them differ from one another? * How can we describe the way objects feel (tactile)?
Vocabulary:Color, Size, Weight, Shape, Texture
Additional words to describe physical properties:
Sort, Rough, Smooth, Plastic, Alike, Different, Senses, Touch/Feel
Objects have different physical attributes based on the materials they are made up of. Objects can be described by the physical attributes of the materials from which they are made, and those attributes can be used to separate or sort a group of objects or materials. Objects have many observable physical attribute including color, size, shape, weight, and texture. The physical attributes of an object can contribute to whether the object sinks or floats.
