What is matter? What do we mean by the 'properties of different states of matter"? The investigations in this book, Matter and Materials: Liquids and Solids, provide opportunities for Grade 2 students to explore different kinds of materials by investigatigating their properties, uses, interactions, and changes.
Students will have the opportunity to conduct simple hands -on experiments, design and build their own boat to perform certain tasks and reflect on environmental issues around oil spills. They will consolidate their learning in their Science and technology Styudent Journals. But most of all, they will have fun learning science.
All investigations use easy to find materials that can be brought from home. there is an Assesment task with each activity and an overall Assessment at the end of the Unit in the form fo a culminating activity. throughout the book, you will find other resources listed to support this Unit.
