3.4.1 Classify different forms of matter (including solids, liquids, and gases) according to their observable and measurable properties.
3.4.2 Explain how water and other substances change from one state to another (including melting, freezing, condensing, boiling, and evaporating).
No School! MLK
**There are two videos on BrainPop you can watch whenever you have time. They are: Matter Changing States and States of Matter. **
SW make booklet “From State to State” and read aloud.
TW read book: Bartholomew and the Oobleck to the class.
SW make oobleck and debate whether the oobleck is a solid or a liquid. TW make sure that students understand that a solid and a liquid came together to make the oobleck.
Materials: corn starch, water, Bartholomew and the Oobleck, booklet
Wednesday: Complete WB page 51 for MW.
TW mass out thermometers in F° and C°.
TSW discuss at what temperatures water boils and freezes on both thermometer. F- boils at 212 and freezes at 32, C- boils at 100 and freezes at 0
SW color in thermometers to show the temps above. Color boiling with red and color freezing with blue.
TW illustrate as she colors on the laminated thermometers and display in room.
Materials: WB, booklet, and thermometers
TW review temperatures at boiling and freezing, discussing how matter turns from liquids to solids.
