Big Idea:Students watch three exciting demonstrations that allow them to come up with signs of a chemical reaction on their own! The demonstrations include Elephant's Toothpaste, The Iodine Clock, and Rocket Engine. Your students will be in awe of these reactions!
Big Idea:Students evaluate the effectiveness of a model to represent global ocean and wind currents. Students combine information they gain from videos, demonstrations, and articles in order to find evidence to support their claim.
Big Idea:Students try to find an explanation when the teacher models a new medical innovation by revealing a "bloody" hand print! Students also create a rainbow of bubbles in a test tube, write a mystery message, and more during labs on chemical changes!
Big Idea:Students utilize text strategies to investigate the differences between a chemical and physical change and play a fun group activity that gives students lots of practice at identifying reactions as chemical or physical!
Big Idea:Want to get your students excited about literacy? This lesson provides an exciting context to work on scientific reading, writing, speaking, and designing. Students complete fun labs and discussions with "launching" tennis balls and ruler flip races!
Physical Properties: Molecular Arrangement and Phase Changes
Big Idea:These lessons have text strategies, writing instruction, discussion techniques, and science content! Students blow up a bag with butane, make water boil at 50 degrees, and make water freeze instantaneously as they explore physical properties!
