KS1 - Science materials resource pack (Pirate themed)
A fantastic resource pack for exploring materials with a fun pirate twist. All of the resources I publish have been tried and tested. The children in my class particularly enjoyed these lessons.
Included in this pack:
A lesson plan covering 3 lessons
Lesson 1 - An introduction to materials with a focus on sorting man-made and natural materials.
Lesson 2 - A fun pirate challenge to explore floating and sinking
Lesson 2 - Another fun pirate challenge to explore waterproof and absorbent materials.

A great follow on to this activity is for children to use their scientific knowledge to make their own pirate ships. Why not have a look at my Design and Technology resource pack to make a pirate ship.
