Students will review states of matter - solids, liquids, and gases. They will compare states of matter to theme and variations in music. They will listen to Turkish March by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and identify the theme and variations.
In these Hero Elementary activities, children explore solid and liquid materials. They observe, compare, and describe solid and liquid materials. They sort materials as solid or liquid. They find out how hot and cold can change the state of materials.
In these Hero Elementary activities, children explore the variety of materials that make up the world around them. Through investigating and describing the properties of materials in their everyday world, children’s ideas about the way materials are and the ways that materials respond to tests give them insight into the complex idea of matter.
In these Hero Elementary activities, children learn about different materials that make up the world around them. They observe and describe the properties of the materials. They compare how materials are alike and different. They sort materials into groups based on their properties. What children learn about the properties of solids and liquids can help them make sense of their world.
Experiments are cool with a curious baby polar bear and his who, what, when, where, and why questions about the three states of matter. In this interactive lesson, students get hands-on with ice and record their observations through drawing and writing.
Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. That is why mass and volume are the properties of matter.
The classroom resource provides a video that will describe the properties and characteristics of matter. This resource can provide background information for students before they conduct their own investigations. There is also a short test that can be used to assess students' understanding.
All matter can exist in three forms: solid, liquid, or gas. Matter can change states through heating or cooling, and it is sure to change states when it reaches its boiling point or freezing point.
The classroom resource provides a video that will explain the three states of matter and how matter can change states. There is a karaoke song that students can learn to help them remember the characteristics of the states of matter. This resource can provide background information for students before they conduct their own investigations. There is also a short test that can be used to assess students' understanding.
Enjoy this colorful self-paced lesson to practice leveled reading. Use question words like “Who? What? When? Where? Why? & How?” Watch a real hot air balloon launch and meet a crazy ostrich who knows she can run but thinks she can fly. Students learn about how matter, mass, volume, and weight are connected to air.
The teacher will present an informational text from the website, ReadWorks. The students and teacher can interact with this non-fiction text by annotating the text digitally. The students will answer the questions associated with the article as an assessment. This learning activity can be used to introduce students to the phases of matter, serve as reinforcement after students have already learned this concept, or be used as an assessment at the conclusion of a lesson. This learning activity will provide important background information before students create their own investigations.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to make and test predictions about sinking and floating and then classify objects according to whether they sink or float. This lesson will also provide practice categorizing a variety of objects according to observable characteristics.
