Objectives:
     The student will be able to:
            • explain that objects are made up of smaller parts
            • identify the physical properties of an object
            • explain that physical properties are not changed when the
              size of the object is reduced
            • state and give examples of the three states of matter

Overview of Content Standards:
     Science 3.3
           The student will investigate and understand that objects are
           made of materials that can be described by their physical
           properties. Key concepts include:
           • objects are made of one or more materials
           • materials are composed parts that are too small to be seen
              without magnification; and
           • physical properties remain the same as the materials reduced
              in size

      Technology:
      C/T 5.2 The student will develop basic technology skills:
           • select and use technology appropriate to the task
           • apply technologies to strategies for problem solving and
              critical thinking

      C/T 5.4 The student will communicate through application software
            • use simple computer graphics and integrate graphics into
               word-processed documents

List of Activities / Tasks:

      1. Interactive Instruction: The teacher will assess students’ knowledge
         of matter – list responses on board
      2. Indirect Instruction: The student will read “What is Matter” in
         textbook p. 94-98
      3. Direct Instruction: The teacher will distribute materials to each
         student to make a science folder
      4. Independent Study Instruction: Students will complete the
         worksheet called Solids, Liquids, and Gases to assess basic
         understanding of the three states of matter
      5. Direct Instruction: The teacher will demonstrate forms of three
         states of matter. Put a wooden block into a plastic bag. Question:
   Does the block change shape? (no) Blow air into the plastic bag
   and hold the end closed. What shape does the gas take? (the
   shape of the bag) Pour the water into the plastic bag. How does the
   water change shape? (changes from shape of glass to shape of the
  bag). Place the bag of water back into the glass. Let the students see
  that the volume has not changed.
6. Experential Instruction: The student will classify the foods they ate
   yesterday as solids, liquids, or gases. The student will design a
   meal that includes at least one solid, one liquid, and one gas.
7. Direct Instruction: The teacher will define the term “physical
   change”
8. Indirect Instruction: The student will read “How Can Matter
   Change?” textbook pages 104 - 106
9. Experential Instruction: The student will, when given a banana,
   clay, and paper, demonstrate ways to make a physical change
10. Independent Study Instruction: Students will complete worksheets
    from the following:
       • What is the Matter?
       • What Have You Learned About Matter?
       • Three States of Matter
       • A Heated Discussion
       • What are the Properties of Matter?
       • What is Matter?

11. Direct Instruction: The teacher will explain that all matter is made
   up of smaller parts that are too small to see without magnification
12 Experential Instruction: The student discover that objects are made
   of small parts and some of these parts are too small to see without
   magnification
       Slice an onion and put a few drops of red dye on it. Using a
      magnifying glass, observe the long, individual onion cells.
       Use a microscope to examine the onion and other objects.
13. Independent Study Instruction: The student will go to computer
   lab and using “Inspiration” construct a graphic organizer listing
   the 3 states of matter and find three picture graphics to illustrate
   each.
14. Experential Instruction: The students (in small groups) will design
   an investigation to determine if physical properties of a material
   will remain the same if the material is reduced in size.
     15 Direct Instruction: The teacher will show a video clip
             “BrainPOP – Science”
             Clip – States of Matter
             Clip – Property Changes
             Clip – Quiz
     Alternative site is UnitedStreaming Blackline masters and quiz
     available also.

     16. Indirect Instruction: The student will use the matter riddle cards to
         review all concepts for a summative assessment.
     17. Summative assessment – test

Assessment / Evaluation:

     Formative:
          • teacher observation
          • direct questioning
          • worksheets

     Summative: Students will be assessed on their ability to:
         • identify that all objects are made up of smaller parts that can
            be seen with magnification
         • list physical properties of solids, liquids, and gases
         • classify objects as solids, liquids, or gases
         • demonstrate that physical properties remain the same if the
            material is reduced in size
