I'm on a teaching placement in a class of 7 an 8 year olds, and have to do a science experiment on materials next week. So far the children have had 3 lessons on the properties of materials, and why we choose, for example, glass to make a window.

Does anyone have any ideas of what I could do? I'm thinking of maybe testing the strength of different types of paper, but it's just not very exciting! I've seen a couple of ideas online, but they involve scratching surfaces with sharp nails (not a chance in this class - they would go wild) or putting heavy tins in plastic bags until they break (I value my toes, thanks...) so if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it :-)
