Bendy and Rigid

Bendy and Rigid is one book in the My World of Science series by Heinemann.  I discovered this series while gathering books for our physical science unit.  The format of this book follows your typical nonfiction format. There is a table of contents, glossary, index, and vibrant photography. The book begins with four questions.  What is bendy? How much does it bend? What is rigid?  How rigid it it? These are two great vocabulary words for young scientist to use while describing materials using their sense of touch. The book looks at various materials found in the readers every day life discussing further bendy and rigid. 

Other books in the series I am using are - 

Soft and Hard
Hot and Cold
Heavy and Light
Shiny and Dull
Smooth and Rough

These would be a nice addition to any primary classroom studying physical properties or discussing observations and vocabulary.
