Using LEGOs and PhET Simulation to Teach Conservation of Matter

Unit 7: Molecules
Lesson 7 of 9

Objective: SWBAT: Explain matter conservation using various modeling techniques, including physical and digital methods.

Big Idea: Talking about matter conservation and experiencing various models of the Law are two very different things. Our job is to get our kids to experience phenomena and then build off of them in later lessons. This lesson sets the stage for future inquiry.
