This is a 4th grade science unit on the processes of matter. This unit follows the Understanding by Design format for lesson planning. It includes a background with the Grade Level Content Expectations for Michigan (can be adapted for your state), the enduring understandings and objectives. For the assessment, there is a performance assessment with two rubrics and a summative assessment with a key. A curriculum map and "if/then" is also included. The unit is 10 days long and includes all the necessary worksheets for the activities. I hope you enjoy!
This lesson plan is intended for 4th grade but can be adapted for other grades. It's saved as a word document so changes can be made.
