  • great idea but some of the materials could be either.... e.g. ice cubes are man made, the finished wool product is man made but not in its original form very ambiguous for KS1.

    • Hi eking34.304,

      Thanks for your resource change suggestion on the Twinkl website, we really appreciate your help.

      I have asked our teacher team to look into this for you and we'll be in touch again if the resource can be made!

      I hope you have a lovely day : )

  • It would be useful to have the name of the item on each of the cards to verify what the item is.

  • I like this but think I will use a venn diagram for my highers. so I can have itemsthat are part manmade part natural.

This sorting is a great way to get your children thinking about what is natural and what is man made that we use in our everyday lives. With fifteen materials to sort, this activity is a great way to start your lesson and introduce the children to the topic of materials!
