Children describe ways of making materials change, make observations and simple comparisons, and construct a table to record their observations. This ready-to-use lesson—in Notebook software—gives you everything you need for a lively science unit!
• a Getting Started activity
• a step-by-step Mini-Lesson plan
• an Independent Work activity
• a Wrap-Up activity (to round up the teaching and learning and identify any assessment opportunities)
This mini-lesson and activity(s) meets the following science standard(s):• Std 8, Lvl I, Benchmark 1: Knows that different objects are made up of many different types of materials (e.g., cloth, paper, wood, metal) and have many different observable properties (e.g., color, size, shape, and weight) Std 8, Lvl I, Benchmark 2: Knows that things can be done to materials to change some of their properties (e.g., heating, freezing, mixing, cutting, dissolving, bending), but not all materials respond the same way to what is done to them
