Task 1: 
You are going to go on a scavenger hunt around your house. Your challenge is to see if you can find items that are made from certain materials and then sort them into 4 groups like in the picture below. 

Task 2: 
Once you have completed your scavenger hunt, use the table in the document below to fill in the properties of those materials. Then think about if your material had a different property, would it still be useful. If your window was opaque, would it still work well as a window? If your table was soft, would it be a good table?
