*This product is designed to help students master academic vocabulary and can be used to supplement a well-balanced science curriculum.
*Flipper Puzzles are self-checking and give kids practice with essential science vocabulary
*Includes 7 puzzles (70 words) including—Properties of Matter, Freezing/Melting/Boiling, Mixtures & Solutions, Energy Uses, Electricity and Circuits, Properties of Light, and Forces
*Aligns with Physical Science Vocabulary Snip-its! vocabulary units available in my store
*Students match words and definitions, then flip the board to reveal a simple science image
*Addresses 5th grade science TEKS to help prepare students for the STAAR test
EASY TO SET UP AND USE
1. Using cardstock, copy words with image on the back and cut the word cards out. Copy the definition board on cardstock. Laminate for durability (optional).
2. Mix cards up and have students match words to definitions, adding word cards to definition board. Then, have students place a paper on top (to hold word cards in place), flip over the board, and reveal the image. If the image doesn’t look right, have them try again.

VOCABULARY 5.5ABCD and 5.6ABCD
The Law of Conservation of Energy
5th GRADE TEXAS TEKS
(5) Matter and energy. The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used. The student is expected to:
(A) classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy;
(B) identify the boiling and freezing/melting points of water on the Celsius scale;
(C) demonstrate that some mixtures maintain physical properties of their ingredients such as iron filings and sand; and
(D) identify changes that can occur in the physical properties of the ingredients of solutions such as dissolving salt in water or adding lemon juice to water.
(6) Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that energy occurs in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems. The student is expected to:
(A) explore the uses of energy, including mechanical, light, thermal, electrical, and sound energy;
(B) demonstrate that the flow of electricity in circuits requires a complete path through which an electric current can pass and can produce light, heat, and sound;
(C) demonstrate that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels through one medium to another and demonstrate that light can be reflected such as the use of mirrors or other shiny surfaces and refracted such as the appearance of an object when observed through water; and
(D) design an experiment that tests the effect of force on an object.
As a Texas teacher, the products I make are designed around the standards for the state of Texas, known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are carefully crafted to help students be successful on the Texas STAAR test. I use the challenge of the TEKS and released STAAR assessments as models to guide me when putting together lessons and materials for students. Thus, I am careful to post products that, in my judgment, address those standards. I am not affiliated in any way with these entities and any and all claims of alignment are my claims, not those of the groups behind the TEKS or STAAR test. Please contact me if you have questions.
