MATTER Differentiated Reading Passages: States of Matter, Changing States, Properties, Mixtures, Physical and Chemical Changes, Dissolving Matter
This bundle includes 6 passages written on three levels and 5 matter review cootie catcher games. Passages are marked H, M, L (high, medium, low) in small print on the bottom of the page.
Passages are written in full or half page format.
Use for test review, intervention, homework, reading centers, or interactive notebooks. Answer keys are included.

*phase changes to solids and liquids gases are caused by
a gain or loss of energy (e.g., melting, freezing, evaporating, condensing)
*Identify observable properties of solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., shape, color, hardness, texture, taste, attraction to magnets).
*Identify measurable properties of solids, liquids, and gases (e.g., mass, volume, temperature) and the tools used to measure them.
*Understand that volume may be found using linear measurements and the water displacement method.
*visible signs of a chemical change that may occur (odor, color change, gas production/bubbles).
*many physical changes to solids and liquids are affected by
temperature change (e.g., melting, freezing, evaporating, condensing, dissolving).
*temperature can cause a chemical change that results in
the formation of a new material with different characteristics (e.g., cooking, decaying plant and animal matter, rusting).
*mixtures can be separated based on observable
properties of their parts (e.g., particle size, shape, color, magnetic attraction) through sorting, using a sieve, using a filter, magnets, and evaporation.
*some materials will dissolve in water and others will not.
*certain conditions will speed up or slow down the dissolving process (smaller particles, stirring, temperature).
