This year, our department moved from interactive notebooks to binder packets. This is the packet we used for our unit on matter. It includes the following topics:
- What is matter?
- States of matter
- Changes of state
- Physical and chemical changes
- Law of conservation of mass
- Endothermic and exothermic processes
We used the California Next Generation Science Standards for grade 7.
The light bulb pages are meant as a review and to anchor the unit. After each question has been addressed in lessons, students answer it in preparation for a short quiz. They may use this page as notes on their test, to provide further motivation to actually complete it!
This was originally created as a Google Document. If you would like that version, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll share it. All I ask is for your feedback so I can improve this resource for others and my own students!
