This is a 5th grade Matter Unit. The standards are from Florida Department of Education. The Unit addresses the Physical Standards of Matter-the states of matter, the properties of matter (chemical and physical), mixtures and solids, and atoms. I created this unit using the Backward Planning Model. This is where you look at the assessment first, then the standards and plan activities/lessons based on these two components.
Activities to do with the students are given as suggestions based on previously used by my students.
