Children love constructing things and will be fascinated to learn how materials can change their shape. Fascinating images help explain how materials can be shaped: wood can be cut or carved, metal can be rolled into a different shape when heated, and clay can be shaped into a pot when it is baked in a mold. Easy experiments also show children how to shape common household materials.
