The 5E model of teaching science is a way that students can construct meaning of new information by understanding experiences and new ideas through inquiry.
This unit is an investigation about the 3 states of matter and how it changes. The students will investigate by making whipped cream and then learn about molecules in each of the 3 states of matter.
Students will follow through the 5Es of the investigation by engaging in the question, exploring through an experiment, explaining the experiment with vocabulary, elaborating on that vocabulary by making a foldable and proving knowledge of the investigation and vocabulary with a ticket out the door.
This activity includes:
Detailed lesson plans on all 5 parts of the investigation
Photos of the experiment
Foldable with printable templates
Ticket out the door
States of matter molecules poster
States of matter molecules coloring poster
