Hi year 5,
Earlier in the year we looked at different materials. We want to see if you can apply this learning to complete an independent investigation.
This week we have looked at William Wilberforce and his links to putting a stop to slavery. According to the triangular trade, slaves were exchanged for manufactured goods from Europe. Many of these would have been made from metal and would need to survive the journey from Europe to Africa. You need to work out which metals would have been best. Which metal is the hardest?
Use the key questions to help you complete the investigation.
You need to identify which metal was the best and explain your choice.
You also need to identify which metal you think the objects are made from i.e. copper, aluminium etc
Put the objects in order and then write that order (using the name of the objects) in the blog below and explain why you have put them in that order using scientific vocabulary.
