NGSS Grade 2 Structure of Properties and Matter Pancake 3 Lab Unit - Differentiated https://www.tes.com/en-us/teaching-resource/ngss-grade-2-structure-of-properties-and-matter-pancake-3-lab-unit-differentiated-11810620

This NGSS Pancake Unit contains three lab projects – for singles, pairs or groups –

to be conducted over two days. The labs contain student template pages and are differentiated for different aptitude level.

This unit also contains a teaching PowerPoint on the Structure and Properties of Matter.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter
Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. (2-PS1-1)
    Elizabeth Chapin-Pinotti
  • Pancake ingredients classified into solid or liquid.
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions Heating or cooling a substance may cause changes that can be observed. Sometimes these changes are reversible, and sometimes they are not. (2-PS1-4)
Another great Unit on Matter: What Does if Matter is available on my teachersnotebook.com.

Experiments, activities, student templates, observation sheets, snowmen and matter, compare and contrast template, guided reading activity and more! Everything an elementary student needs to know about matter.
  • Common Core State Standards aligned for 2nd and 3rd English Language Arts.
  • Next Generation Science Standards.
2-PS1-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
2-PS1-2 Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose.
2-PS1-3 Make observations to construct an evidence-based account of how an object made of a small set of pieces can be disassembled and made into a new object.
2-PS1-4 Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.
