Description

States of Matter Unit: Students will learn that applying heat and cold can change water from one state to another. Students will also learn about the characteristics of each state of matter including volume, shape, rigidness, and molecule arrangement. They will learn that some changes caused by heat can be reversed and some cannot. This resource has hands-on 5 E inquiry-based lab and response pages.

This resource includes:

  • flaps and folds for interactive notebooks
  • a nonfiction article
  • a quiz
  • response pages
  • a lab
  • sorting cards that can be used for center time or for fast finishers

NGSS Standard 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

This resource also aligns with Utah SEEd Standard 2.3.4 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about changes in matter caused by heating or cooling. Emphasize that some changes can be reversed and some cannot. Examples of reversible changes could include freezing water or melting crayons. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg or burning wood. (PS1.B)

and NJSLS • 2-PS1-4 Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot

This resource focuses more on basic science concepts of the three main states of matter, and how adding heat or cold to them can change them into another state of matter. This resource also looks at the properties of each state of matter (gas has an unfixed shape and takes on the shape of the container).

Science Concepts in this Resource:

Solids have a fixed volume and shape

Liquids take on the shape of the container

Gas takes on the shape and volume of the container

Molecules in solids are close together and vibrate slightly

Molecules in liquid move around and are farther apart

Molecules in gas sip around quickly are ar spread out

States can be changed by adding heat or cold

This resource is not writing-intensive and is appropriate for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade.

NGSS2-PS1-4
Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot. Examples of reversible changes could include materials such as water and butter at different temperatures. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg, freezing a plant leaf, and heating paper.
NGSS2-PS1-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.
NGSS2-PS1-2
Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose. Examples of properties could include, strength, flexibility, hardness, texture, and absorbency. Assessment of quantitative measurements is limited to length.
NGSS2-PS1-3
Make observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a new object. Examples of pieces could include blocks, building bricks, or other assorted small objects.
