Description

Our interactive Solids, Liquids and Gases Lesson Plan demonstrates the difference in how molecules make up solids, liquids, and gases. As an outcome of this lesson, students will be able to list characteristics of solids, liquids, and gases.  The engaging, hands-on water and penny activity demonstrates the attractive bonding properties of water and engages the sensory system while developing concept imagery.

Classroom Procedure Sample Snippet:

  1. Display a penny, a water dropper, and the water and ask students how many drops of water they believe can fit on a penny.
  2. Allow for guesses but do not have a discussion.
  3. Distribute Activity Page, penny, water, and a water dropper to each student
  4. Remind students to write their predictions before they begin the activity, and to follow the instructions
  5. Monitor the students to be sure they are not “pouring” the water out of the dropper. This will happen if they do it incorrectly. The penny should hold more than 20 or 30 drops of water.
  6. Once you recognize all the students have finished, collect the supplies and review their answers.
  7. Ask: What is causing the water drops to “stick” together?
  8. Allow for responses and discussion, leading to- like molecules are attracted to each other.

Common Core State Standards: CCSS.ELA.Science.6.RST., CCSS.ELA.Science.6.RST., CCSS.ELA.Science.4-5.RI., CCSS.ELA.Science.4-5.RI.

Excellent Resource

I am a new teacher so I try to keep my eye out for any resources that might help me build my own lesson plans. I did not have to make any adjustment to this lesson plan because it was complete with very detailed instructions. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a lesson plan on this subject.
