This is an 11 day unit plan designed to teach the three states of matter.
During this unit the children will define matter, learn about the three states of matter and discover each state's properties. They will also learn how to measure the weight of a solid and the volume of a liquid using a spring scale and graduated cylinder. They will also investigate matter as it changes from state to state with a change in temperature.
This unit includes: 11 days of lesson plans, 8 hands on experiments, 7 worksheets, one partner matching game, one journal prompt, and one summative assessment project (making a book). This unit also includes writing (writing prompt) and math (double bar graph).
