Science  Classify materials according to their physical properties (science) 3.12.1  and  3.12.4

 Math     Construct pictographs and bar graphs.

Science    3.12.4    Recognize that objects have observable properties that can change over time and under different conditions   

Science    3.12.4       Classify materials according to their physical properties.

Math        3.4.5    Select and use appropriate tools to observe and measure the physical properties of materials.

3.12. 4

All matter is made of small particles, atoms

Atoms behave differently in different states of matter

 

3.13.2

Identify chemical change

Identify physical change

Three states of matter – state assessed objective

SUMMARY OF PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

The learner will be engaged in learning through an anticipation guide.  The anticipation guide increases the learner comprehension because it focuses their attention towards content to be presented.  Unconsciously students will be assimilating and accommodating new information with old information.  Anticipation guide:  has true and false statements about matter and basic properties. The learner states whether they think the statements are true or false.  When everyone has answered, statements are checked by teacher as a whole class.  During active learning, the teacher addresses those questions and proves why they are true or false.  ***  make sure questions target the objectives to be addressed in lesson.

The learner will be given examples of matter to identify.

The learner will be asked to describe the behavior of atoms in different states of matter

The learner will be given examples of changes in matter and asked to identify as a chemical or physical change

The learner will be provided various activities to assess knowledge of material learned

 

 

 

 


 
OVERVIEW OF STUDENT LEARNING ACTIVITIES

  LESSON  1

The Three States of  Matter :    The learner will be able to differentiate between solids, liquids, and gases through inquiry.

The learner will learn to gather information and represent it on s graph.

Know and Understand vocabulary:  solid, liquid, gas, property, and matter

 

The Three States of  Matter

 LESSON 2

Properties of Matter   : The learner will understand that all matter has properties.

The learner will be able to identify the properties of an object.

 

Know and understand Vocabulary:  property

Properties of Matter

  LESSON 3

All Matter is Made of  Atoms  : To understand that all matter is made of small particles called atoms.

To understand that atoms behave differently in different states of matter

All Matter is Made of  Atoms

  LESSON 4

Changes in Matter:  The learner will be able to differentiate between a physical change

The learner will be able to differentiate between a physical change

Changes in Matter

 LESSON 5

Review the Three States of Matter: During this lesson, the learner will be provide with various enrichment activities to enhance his/her knowledge of  the three states of matter.
