- Product Description
In this science station, students explore changes in matter caused by heat and ice and determine whether those changes are reversible or irreversible. Students engage in an activity where they explore the properties of chocolate and ice cream. They then answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned. The Explore Science station is part of the Reversible and Irreversible Changes Science Stations.
This station is also available in a larger bundle of 8 Reversible and Irreversible Changes Science Stations.
Google Classroom™️ Components Include:
► Google Form™️ with Reading Text & Differentiated Questions
► Google Slides™️ with Activity Directions & Worksheets to record results
While we have included Google Slides, this is a hands-on activity.
Included in this resource:
- Links to Google Resources noted above
- Teacher Notes (material list & notes)
- Student Text in four formats
- MP3 Audio of the Text Read Aloud
- Student Instructions
- Activity Sheets to record observations
- Differentiated Questions (short answer, fill-in-the-blank with and without a word bank, task cards, multiple-choice questions)
- Answer Key___________________________________________________________________________
► Big Idea Posters that explain the core ideas of the stations.
► Vocabulary Cards in two formats with and without pictures.
► Watch - Students watch a video in order to learn about changes in states of matter or about how the changes in states of water makes clouds and weather. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Play - Students play a game in order to learn about changing states of matter or about reversible and irreversible changes. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Investigate - Students read about reversible and irreversible changes, specifically when matter changes state. They make observations of an example of an irreversible change in order to investigate this. The answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Diagram - Students read about changes in states of matter. They put together a diagram of changing states of matter and answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Read a Passage - Students read about properties and states of matter. They answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Model - Students read about and states of matter and types of changes. They make a model of and answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Explore Students read about changing states of matter. They explore this and answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
► Sort - Students read about reversible and irreversible changes as matter changes state. They sort pictures into two categories. They then answer questions in order to reinforce what they have learned.
Each station includes four different ways to respond to the experience at the station: short answer questions, fill-in-the-blank questions, task cards with short answers, task cards with multiple choice. All the variations are similar to one another. Choose the format that best fits your classroom and students. Students are encouraged to use their science journals, but worksheets are included as well.
Each station is designed to last about 15-20 minutes. Students may do one a day for 8 days, 2 a day for four days, or any format that works for your classroom. Because there are additional activities for the Watch and Play stations, you can offer those as a choice within that station or offer them as an early finisher station, as well.
In Second Grade, students are expected to demonstrate understanding in the following areas:
• 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
This correlates with the DCI 2-PS1.B, which states:
• Heating or cooling a substance may cause changes that can be observed. Sometimes these changes are reversible, and sometimes they are not.
The Investigate, Diagram, and Explore stations correlate with the Engineering Design DCI ETS1.B, which states:
• Designs can be conveyed through sketches, drawings, or physical models. These representations are useful in communicating ideas for a problem’s solutions to other people. (K-2-ETS1-2)
The Crosscutting Concepts are met in the following ways:
• Cause and Effect: Events have causes that generate observable patterns. (2-PS1-4)
This Concept is met in the Investigate, Model, and Explore stations.
