The activities in this package can be implemented in whole group during a Matter Unit, in small group science stations, or during your literacy block in literacy stations. These project-based science stations will have your students exploring matter to read and answer questions, conduct experiments, review vocabulary, play vocabulary games, conduct research projects, and explore matter through technology.
Reading Station: Provide books and Internet documents with copies of graphic organizers. Organizers can also be used as note-takers in your whole group instruction.
Topics For Organizers:
-properties of matter
Vocabulary Station: 20 terms and definitions are included in chart form for students to practice and glue in their notebooks. All 20 terms are included in a Matter Fiddle Strips! game. Prepare the game according to instructions for vocabulary fun!
Explore Science: 10 matter labs are included with materials lists and a lab form. Students could record lab results on their lab sheets or directly in their science notebooks. Lab sheets could also be completed and glued in their science notebooks.
Computer Station: 6 websites are listed (and hyperlinked) for students to visit. Videos and video quizzes are included on some of the sites. 4 website recording sheets are included for note taking and accountability.
Research Station: Students will record their research in An Element Fact File. These make great resources to keep in the classroom for future reference! Students will analyze photographs and explain scientific observations.
These activities are interactive and will keep students engaged throughout your Matter science unit! All activities and projects are designed and aligned to meet the 5th Grade Next Generation Science Standards.
