Worksheet: Properties of Matter
In this worksheet, we will practice identifying different properties of materials.
A class tested how absorbent different paper towels are.
Which towel was the most absorbent?
Hint: Which towel soaked up the most water?
|Amount of Water Absorbed (ml)||33||42||50||37|

A class tested different materials to see which were waterproof. They recorded their results in a table.
Use the table to identify which material would be best to make a waterproof jacket or a raincoat.
A class tested different materials (fabrics) to see which are waterproof. They used a dropper to squeeze 5 drops of water onto each piece of fabric and then observed if these drops were absorbed by the fabric.
Their results are shown in the table.
|Type of Fabric||Number of Drops on Top of the Fabric||Is It Waterproof? (Yes/No)|
Which material is the best to use to make a rain boot?
Hint: Use the table to help you.
A class were testing materials to find the best thermal insulator to make a coffee cup.
They placed boiling water (100 degrees Celsius) in a beaker and covered the beaker with each of the materials.
They checked the temperature of the water after five minutes.
|Temperature of Water after 5 Minutes (Degrees Celsius)||80||95||75||75|
Which of the materials tested is the best thermal insulator?
