Dessert island materials

We can classify materials into natural materials and manufactured materials.

Natural materials come from nature and can come from plants, animals or minerals. Wood, cotton and natural rubber come from plants. Wool, leather and silk come from animals. Rocks and oil come from minerals.

Manufactured materials are made from natural materials which are transformed in a manufacturing process. We manufacture glass from sand, and we use oil to make plastic, crayons and fabrics such as nylon.

Let's play to check if we know all this!
