Changing Matter: Day One of Nahari Has The Solution!

5th Grade Science » Unit: What's The Matter Plaid Pete?
5th Grade Science » Unit: What's The Matter Plaid Pete?
Amy Miller
Lynden, WA
Environment: Rural
 
Big Idea:

What is a mixture? What is a solution? How do you tell the difference between the two? Students actively mix, filter, and evaporate, to add to their growing wealth of knowledge about the properties of matter.

5th Grade Science » Unit: What's The Matter Plaid Pete?
Amy Miller
Lynden, WA
Environment: Rural
 
Big Idea:

How do scientists use the properties of matter to identify substances? Students identify the crystals that result from their evaporation test, and use their knowledge of the properties of matter to try to categorize a new substance.
