Are you looking for a fun activity to wrap up your NGSS unit on MATTER? This is the resource for you! Students will review the properties of matter while completing a quick science experiment. This resource includes a tips and suggestions page, directions page, and student recording sheet.

I like to do this around THANKSGIVING when reading the book Cranberry Thanksgiving. I ask for parent volunteers to make the bread, so we have something yummy to put the butter on. We can also talk about how it was harder to make butter in colonial times.
