PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 36-page product will help guide your students toward understanding how heat can affect matter, how to classify matter, and how matter can change.

I teach this to my 1st graders in Texas, so I cover these standards with the lesson:
- 1.5A - classify objects by observable properties of the materials from which they are made such as larger or smaller, heavier or lighter, shape, color, and texture
- 1.5B - predict and identify changes in materials caused by heating and cooling
- 1.6A - identify and discuss how different forms of energy such as light, heat, and sound are important to everyday life.

This packet includes the following:
- 3 pages of notes with tips and tricks on the best ways to make this lesson successful
- 5 pages of detailed lesson plans, including essential questions and relevant word wall list
- 5 ready-to-display discussion points/questions for your class
- 2 discussion questions (the the option to complete 2 investigations with the popcorn kernels)
- 4 brainstorming pages
- a full page recording sheet
- a 2/page recording sheet (perfect for fitting into composition books and saving paper simultaneously!)
- 12 different graphs -- half for the prediction and half for the results -- so you can pick and choose which meets best meets your students' needs
- Popcorn pieces to decorate (for predictions)
- Literature connections

Please note that this file opens in PowerPoint. Because of the terms of use of some of the graphic artists' clipart I used, I had to "lock" the images down, which means you cannot edit or delete those elements individually. However, there are several pages in the product where you can add your own text and to personalize this product for your students.
