Materials Science: Properties of Matter
This is the second of three modules second grade will complete this year. This module will take place every day during the students' science time from Jan.29th-Feb.27th.
Students will be integrating science with technology, engineering, math, and language arts. They will also be using the Innovator Skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving throughout this module.
Students will investigate and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties, including color, texture, and heat conduction. After analyzing data from materials testing, the students design an insulating cover for an ice pop to prevent melting.
