Description

An excellent science literacy and mystery matter lab activity for identifying physical properties of matter! Once both parts are assembled, you may use this activity for years to come. Only four student answer worksheets need printing after that. Crosscutting concepts: structure & function.

Two parts to this activity:

Part A – Science literacy activity. Students sort through 205 cards to identify words that may be used to describe the 23 physical properties of matter included in this activity. (This will really challenge their understanding of the physical properties of matter!!) A definition for each property also included. Designed to allow for the option of optical mark recognition (OMR) assessment methods to save you time.

Physical properties of matter include: boiling point, brittleness, clarity, color, concentration, conductivity, density, ductility, form, hardness, luster, magnetism, malleability, mass, melting point, odor, solubility, state, taste, temperature, texture, viscosity, & volume.

Part B – A hands-on Mystery Matter lab activity. Students compare and contrast physical properties and identify matter using the language introduced in part A.
Designed to address some common student misconceptions and increase understanding. 38 bottles in all. Acquisition of materials and assembly of bottles is required. Complete list of materials, instructions, and pictures are included. All items easily sourced from home or at your local craft, hardware, bulk, and/or grocery store. Relatively safe household items used.

Included in this package:

- 4 student worksheets (two pages per activity);

- 12 pages containing physical properties of matter placemats;

- 13 pages of words that may be used to describe and definitions (205 cards in all);

- Educator instructions for assembly of bottles, materials required, pictures, useful tips;

- All answers.
