Included in this set are five activities designed to meet the NGSS second grade standards for changing matter:
-Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable
-Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
The labs and activities included are as follows:
-Solids, Liquids, and Gases
-What's the Matter with Jell-O?
-Testing the Three Little Pigs (STEM)
All of the labs are hands-on and second grade friendly. The labs require some materials, but most of them are common classroom objects. One lab requires materials to bake cookies. The labs can be completed in groups, individually, in pairs, or as a whole group depending on your specific classroom needs. Each lab includes the materials needed, directions, and reflection questions. Some labs also have activity sheets where needed.
