Finding the materials used to make different objects in Materials and Things – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name:  Materials and Things

Activity Name: Finding the materials used to make different objects in  Materials and Things

Activity Description:

The experiment involves identifying the materials from which various objects in a house are made. A list of objects is provided, and the task is to determine the possible materials used to make each object.

Required Items:

  • Table 2 with a list of objects

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Refer to Table 2, which contains a list of objects found in a house.
  2. Examine each object and think about the materials from which they could possibly be made.
  3. Write down the materials that you think are used to make each object in the “Material” column of the table.
  4. Determine which objects are made of only one material and mark them accordingly.
  5. Identify the objects that are made of more than one material and mark them as well.
  6. Focus specifically on chairs and think about the different materials that can be used to make them.
  7. List the types of materials that can be used for making chairs in the space provided.

Experiment Observations:

  • Door: Wood, metal
  • Towel: Cotton, synthetic fibers
  • Bicycle: Metal, rubber, plastic
  • Knife: Metal, plastic
  • Mirror: Glass, metal
  • Shoes: Leather, rubber, fabric
  • Water bottle: Plastic, metal
  • Pot: Clay, metal

Objects made of only one material:

  • Door (Wood or metal)
  • Towel (Cotton or synthetic fibers)
  • Knife (Metal or plastic)
  • Mirror (Glass or metal)

Objects made of more than one material:

  • Bicycle (Metal, rubber, plastic)
  • Shoes (Leather, rubber, fabric)
  • Water bottle (Plastic, metal)
  • Pot (Clay, metal)

Note down your observations in below table format


  1. There are no specific precautions for this activity.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Different objects are made of different materials. Some objects are made of only one material, while others are made of more than one material.

By exploring the materials used in everyday objects, we gain a better understanding of the diverse materials that make up our surroundings and their importance in our daily lives.
