Product Description
This fun-filled, interactive activity can be used to teach students about the physical properties of matter. Your students will enjoy "playing scientists" as they make observations and record their findings on various types of matter. Students always enjoy this activity and it will spark a rich discussion on physical properties afterwards.

DURATION: This activity is a full lesson in itself, requiring approximately 35-45 minutes. It’s best used after students understand the 3 states of matter and are ready to begin exploring physical properties of matter, such as shape, size, texture, etc.

***************************************************************************
Instructions for Use:

1. Set up the room into five stations with one object at each station. Objects might include things such as a toothpick, a soda bottle, an inflated balloon, etc. Just be sure to include solids, liquids, and gases.

2. Pass out an activity sheet to each student and divide students into five groups.

3. Give students 5 minutes to record observations about the object at their station. Rotate around the room & repeat at each station. (25 min. total)

4. Conduct a whole-class discussion (5-10 min.) of physical properties of matter based on student observations.


Happy Teaching!
