WES 3rd Graders  Learn About Matter and the Scientific Process

In this science unit focused on matter, students will understand how objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of, their properties, and the changes that occur in properties of materials when wet, mixed, heated, frozen, cut, dissolved, blended, or exposed to light. 

Students participated in two activities. In the first activity, students predicted what would happen to two different kinds of candies when placed in hot water. In both experiments, students explained the reasons for their predictions. During the experiments, students documented what took place and how the items changed or reacted. At the end, students wrote a conclusion and explained their reasons for the outcome.
