Students worked together and examined different kinds of metals. They were focusing on the physical properties of flexibility, reflectivity, and magnetism.

Students were given a tub full of various kinds of metals and needed to discover ways to sort and compare metals.

Students used flexibility and reflectivity scales, and they recorded responses on their investigation sheets while looking for patterns in the properties.

Students tested the magnetism of the metals.
