Amazing Science uses the extraordinary and mind-boggling facts about science to introduce children to the core topic of materials at KS1. Each spread starts with an interesting fact supported by a dramatic picture to engage the child's interest. It then seeks to explain, in simple terms, the science behind it. 'Your Turn' boxes then challenge children to look around them for similar examples, such as what materials are used for.
