Looking for Hands On, Minds On Science and Technology centres?
These Properties of and Changes in Matter Science Centres are low prep and easy to implement. Just print and laminate all of the student instruction cards for use year after year. Place the instruction cards and materials in buckets or tubs. Students record their findings on the student booklets included. Divide students into groups to rotate through each of the centres. You can also make multiple copies of the centres and have the students work in groups on the same activity/investigation.
**Some of the centres require the teacher to provide materials. Most of these materials are easy to obtain. Please check out the extensive PREVIEW to learn more.**

• How can you explore the phases of matter?
• How does matter change phases?
• How does heating and cooling affect phase changes?
