This is a Science unit I created using the 2nd Grade Next Generation Science Standards for the proprties of matter. Included are several activities and experiments to cover all 4 PSI standards.
2-PSI-1: The students will sort pictures of matter into categories, discuss solids, liquids and gases and come up with their own examples of each. Then they will do a balloon experiment.
2-PSI-2: The students will design an experiment to test the attributes of different objects. (Ex. testing the strength of different paper plates)
2-PSI-3: The students will use materials such as blocks or legos to create an object, break it apart and turn it into something else using those same pieces.
2-PSI-4: You will help the students conduct experiments to test the changes that occur when various objects are either heated or cooled. They will use these experiments to determine whether or not these changes are reversible.
The activities come with everything you will need to create packets/worksheets and most come with reflection pages so the students can reflect on what they learned.
My Preview shows you an example of 1 of the standards :)
