I wanted a way for my students to practice classifying matter using physical properties. I also wanted practice reading charts and creating charts.
This activity uses vocabulary: soluble, density, electrical conductor, electrical insulator, magnetic, state of matter.
I created charts for students to read and be able to classify matter. I also created blank charts for students to fill out.
You could take this a step further and have the actual items (I used very accessible items) for students to feel and touch.
They should love it and it is a GREAT test prep, small group activity.
