Properties pick'n'mix

Plastics can be made from different materials. All the plastic wrappers shown here can be made from plants.

Plastics have different properties because they have to do different jobs. Think about the different jobs these plastics do and what they need to be like. Crinkly, smooth, stretchy or stiff.

Try to match the different plastics with the jobs that they are used for.
