This packet Next Generation Science product contains some demonstrations, modeling, and observation opportunities to help students understand that matter exists in three forms (solids, liquids, and gases) and that while it consists of particles too small to be seen, we can understand how they are arranged in each form.
Next Generation Science Standard 5-PS1-1: Matter and Its Interactions: Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
Table of Contents:
Letter to Parents for Supplies
Bottle of Coke Demonstration with Observation Sheet
Cloud in a Jar with Observation Sheet
The Siblings of the States of Matter Story and Family Album
Student-Made Model to Show Particle Arrangement in Each of the three forms of matter: solid liquid gas.
The above may be done in any order you choose, but I recommend the demonstrations with observations be done first without any “instruction.” Let students made the observations.
NOTE: All of the 5-Physical Science products below, including this one, are also bundled into one package. So, don't purchase BOTH the bundle and the individual products or you will be double-dipping!!! :)
