Reflection: Lesson Planning Matter and Heat / Irreversible Changes - Section 3: Noodle Observations


The noodles were not quite cool enough to handle and the lemonade was still slushy, so I took out the book, What is the World Made Of? All About Solids, Liquids and Gasses. Students enjoyed the Image result for what is the world made of

text. It helped connect students' lab experiences to previous learning.

I usually have a text on hand that is connected with what the students are learning in case there are a few extra minutes.

Another resource to consider is Brainpop Jr: "Changing States of Matter". This video connects with the first lesson, "Terms of Heat Exchange ..." in this 3 part lesson, but could be viewed today as a review and a way to connect with reversible and irreversible changes.
