This activity will let students practice classifying matter. (Texas TEK 5.5A). Instead of giving the physical property for the students to classify, they will get a set of pictures/cards and THEY will have to come up with ways to classify them. Some physical properties they can classify by are: magnetism, state of matter, density, solubility.
This zip file includes:
-2 sets of picture cards (with lots of different types of matter)
-A hand out that students will use with the activity
-Teacher Instructions on how to do the activities, with example of how to complete the handout
