Classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy.
The following sheets are the directions for 6 stations to investigate various Physical Properties of Matter. Station 6 has two options. Choose the option that best fits your needs. The first option uses an Energy Ball to determine the conductivity of electricity. The second option uses a basic circuit built from a battery, wires, and a light bulb.
I prefer my students to draw out their own charts, but if you prefer for your students to have premade copies to insert in their journals, please look for Physical Properties of Matter Stations Student Booklet that will be available in my TPT store by the end of July 2017.
