This unit is designed to lead students through the Next Generation Science Standards for 5th grade. This packet focuses on Structure and Properties of Matter: Properties and The Next Generation Science Standard:
5-PS1-2. Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.
5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
5-PS1-4. Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
The unit is purposefully written to give teachers the ability to introduce and change as they feel would be best for their teaching style and student ability. This unit is designed to be very relaxed, and to revolve around class discussion.
For this unit a classroom party would be a fun way to discuss properties of matter. Students will be able to eat trail mix, drink Kool-aid, conduct an experiment as a class and participate in discussions.
