Matter

Science 2.3 – The student will investigate and understand basic properties of solids, liquids, and gases. Key concepts include

a) identification of distinguishing characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases;

b) measurement of the mass and volume of solids and liquids; and

c) changes in phases of matter with the addition or removal of energy.

THREE STATES OF MATTER POWERPOINT:

Students are expected to put together a slideshow with at least one example of each state of matter and a description as to why it belongs in that category.

This activity would be described at redefinition because it allows the students to make a new activity to showcase what they have already learned about the subject.

THREE STATES OF MATTER CUT AND PASTE WORKSHEET:

The students are expected to cut out multiple examples of solids, liquids, and gases and be able to sort them in the correct category

This activity would be described as modification because it is just another way to learn about the three states of matter.

THREE STATES OF MATTER VIDEO FOLLOWED BY A WORKSHEET:

The students are expected to watch a video on the three states of matter and then complete a worksheet about the video.

This activity would be described as augmentation because the video is the substitute for the lesson itself.
