Grade 2: Matter Mysteries (2-PS1-2)


This unit was developed for a second grade class in Chico, CA. To study matter and its interactions, students explored materials, their properties, and what materials are best used for an intended purpose. With the use of Mystery Science videos, exploration, experimentation, and presentations, students gained a better understanding of materials and their properties and which materials are best to use for an intended purpose. Students were able to make an initial claim before the lesson began and revise their claim after the lesson was taught.
