STATES OF MATTER - Distinguir entre las propiedades de sólidos, líquidos y gases. - Saber cómo están unidas las partículas según la Teoría Cinética de las Partículas. - Identificar los distintos cambios de estado y relacionarlos con fenómenos naturales y cotidianos. SESIÓN 1: Reconocimiento de sólidos, líquidos y gases de acuerdo con sus propiedades. Se empieza con una lluvia de ideas motivada por una serie de materiales (bloque de madera, arena, zumo de naranja, agua, aire). alumnos deben deducir sus propiedades (si tienen forma y volumen fijos o no, si se pueden comprimir o no...) que recogen en una tabla. A continuación, se reparten por parejas unas fichas donde un estudiante dice una propiedad y el otro debe decir de qué estado se trata. otra tabla. SESIÓN 2: No siempre es fácil clasificar materiales. Se muestra a los alumnos un esquema con diferentes preguntas que al ir contestando les permite llegar a la conclusión de a qué estado pertenece un determinado material. borrar… los cambios de estado. y los gases.

The Science Spot A to Z Teacher Stuff Fifth grade Lesson States of Matter Part 1 | BetterLesson Inquiry Based Instructional Model To intertwine scientific knowledge and practices and to empower students to learn through exploration, it is essential for scientific inquiry to be embedded in science education. While there are many types of inquiry-based models, one model that I've grown to appreciate and use is called the FERA Learning Cycle, developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC): 1. Focus 2. 3. 4. A framework for implementation can be found here. I absolutely love how the Center for Inquiry Science at the Institute for Systems Biology explains that this is "not a locked-step method" but "rather a cyclical process," meaning that some lessons may start off at the focus phase while others may begin at the explore phase. Unit Explanation In this unit, students will begin by exploring the properties of matter. Summary of Lesson Today, I open the lesson by discussing the three states of matter. Next Generation Science Standards 5-PS1-1. 5-PS1-3. Crosscutting Concepts - Support for High School Science Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds Fifth grade Lesson Physical Changes Versus Chemical Changes The Focus of the Investigation: After our foldable is created, it is time to investigate some changes to practice identifying them as physical changes or chemical changes. The students get very excited about some of these activities so it is important to help guide them to help them focus on what is most important, observing the changes that are occurring and watching for one of the indicators listed in the foldable. The Physical and Chemical Change Investigation Sheet that I use for this lesson has students identify properties before and after to help them notice these changes. Investigating in Small Groups: We do the rotations as a class, but each group completes the activities and investigation sheet together. Next, we move to the station 1 activity: Origami. We move on to station 2: Lava Lamps. Station 3 is building a boat out of an 10" x 10" square of aluminum foil. After boats are built, we move on to station 4: Balloon Blow Up. Our final station is station 5: Glue Bouncy Balls.

1000s FREE Primary Teaching Resources & Printables - EYFS, KS1 and KS2 - SparkleBox Eighth grade Lesson Eliciting Student Ideas: What is Heat? What is Temperature? This starts a series of lessons that introduce students to Heat and Temperature. I teach these in the context of a my unit on Changes in Earth's Atmosphere in order to apply the understanding of heat transfer on atmospheric phenomena as opposed to stand alone physical science lessons. This set of lessons gets students thinking about how heat is transferred through conduction, convection, and radiation. You begin with an elicit of student's ideas on heat and temperature followed by engaging them in discussion of their ideas. First up is a lesson from the American Chemical Society, where students complete an activity in which heat is transferred from hot water to metal washers and then from hot metal washers to water. A lab modeling the Greenhouse effect looks at heating of soil and water with and without an "atmosphere" as part of an exploration of heat transfer by radiation.

Find free images online! | Images are an important part of the creative side of any educators’s work. We need to make use of quality image sources that are good, free, and easy to search through. The trick is to know what sources to recommend to students. It’s not just about copyright – its about being practical, and showing students the wonderful world of possibilities beyond Google images or taking anything they find that is not actually in the public domain – a vital point as more students and teachers move into online environments of blogs, wikis and more. Flickr is my top favourite which also has an advanced search option. Flickr Creative Commons compiles images that Flickr users who chosen to offer their work under a Creative Commons license, and you can browse or search through content under each type of license. FlickrCC Attribution Helper – outstanding! FlickrStorm – lets you search photos on Flickr that are made available through a Creative Commons license Compfight – a beautifully simple interface!

States of matter — Science Learning Hub Anything that has mass is made up of matter – an all-encompassing word for atoms and molecules that make up our physical world. We describe this matter as existing in states (sometimes referred to as phases). Most people are familiar with three states of matter – solids, liquids and gases – but there are two more that are less commonly known but just as important – plasmas and Bose-Einstein condensates. Three states of matter Solids, liquids and gases are three states of matter. It is important to understand the particle nature of matter. Solid Gallium crystal Gallium is an uncommon metal that exists in a liquid and solid form. Acknowledgement: Foobar Something is usually described as a solid if it can hold its own shape and is hard to compress (squash). Right now, you are probably sitting on a chair, using a mouse or a keyboard that is resting on a desk – all those things are solids. Liquid In liquids, the molecules have the ability to move around and slide past each other. Gas Plasma
