This is the second activity in my Littlest Bits
Students observe as four different materials are dropped into very cold and then very hot water. Videos
of the activities have been included with your resources as a preview for you or for students absent from class or who benefit from seeing the activity again.
Students describe what they see for the first two materials and then time the activity for the last two materials. Students read about the activity in a student text
that has been saved in two reading levels, two different image types (blackline and color), and two languages (English and Spanish). Both texts have been recorded for students who need to hear the information.
Choose from two options for assessing student learning: repeating the activity with warm water or adding a new material to very cold and very hot water after students predict the results.
This lesson can be part of a unit to meet NGSS 5-PS1-1♦.
