    These five great resources are all you need to help your students master essential content related to the States and Properties of Matter. This bundle includes a close reading, a performance task, vocabulary games and activities, and my best selling Escape Room! Your students will have a blast and you will love having everything easy to prep and teach!

    The Performance Task is one of my students' favorites. They get to create a Superhero who has the ability to change matter in some way. As they draw and write the comic strip, they naturally use the vocabulary terms, and the science concepts are cemented in their brains!

    I've just added two new products to this bundle! If you already own it, they are waiting for you in your purchases! :)

    This Science bundle includes:

    1. My best-selling Google Form Escape Room
    2. a non-fiction text (both digital and printable versions!) full of Science content about matter
    3. a lesson plan for a close reading protocol including definitions for key terms
    4. a Performance Task with student planning sheet and 4 templates to choose from
    5. a rubric for the Performance Task
    6. two puzzles to practice the key vocabulary - a Crossword and a Word Search - both with answer keys!
    7. 50 full-color Word Wall cards
    8. 47 cards to play Dominoes or I Have, Who Has?
    9. Prep Steps and Suggestions for using everything!

    You will love how easy this is to teach, and your students will love the fun games, comic strip writing task, activities and Escape Room.
