Product Description

15 pages including a scripted lesson plan and interactive class activities and projects to help students understand why some thing glow in the dark.

Welcome to the world of Matter Mania! I hope you enjoy my lesson plans for fun, interactive, and stimulating science classes. My lessons encourage the STEM fundamentals: becoming critical thinkers and effective problem solvers through real world examples and project based learning.

The objective of this lesson is to teach students about elasticity through rubber bands and springs. They will learn concepts such as kinetic vs potential energy, conservation of energy, elastic vs. plastic, and Hooke's Law. The lesson includes many class demonstrations as well as a take home project of a rubber band powered boat and an in-class project to build and test a spring scale. Students will also be introduced to different types of springs: coil, spiral, and leaf.

This lesson plan is appropriate for grades 3-5. It can be completed in 1-2 class periods. The lesson is fully scripted, easy to use, and appropriate for teachers, homeschoolers, parents, and substitute teachers.

Included in this packet you will find:

  • A list of the items needed to run these lessons
  • The teacher script
  • Instructions for class activities, demonstrations, and projects
  • Classroom diagrams and worksheets
