This ready-to-go lab activity should follow your introduction and vocabulary discussion of the physical properties of matter. It is a great way for kids to apply these terms with a hands-on activity! The extension questions also allow for some follow up to assist with 5th grade Science STAAR preparation. A blank chart is included in case the teacher wants to use different objects than the ones I listed. I included some tips when my students are exploring with this lab. Don't reinvent the wheel; if you have been searching for a great lab over physical properties of matter, look no further!
