Using 4 objects and 1 one mystery object, watch your students love to learn with this hands on and engaging Physical Properties Lab Sheet. This assignment reviews the states of matter, various types of physical properties, and guides students to use their own creativity and constructed responses to validate their thinking. I made this for my 3rd graders but you can modify it to fit your classroom of 2nd graders, 4th graders, and even 5th graders.
This lab was created for students working in small groups and encourages good accountable talk, but you can also present this assignment to your class and have them follow along and allow for good wait time. No matter how you implement this lab, your students will learn, grow, and love you for it! After creating an assignment, I usually ask myself, "Is it cute, or does it count?", and I'll just have to say friends that it is both.
