What Matters Most!!!
Big Ideas in Properties of Matter
The overall goal is to investigate the make up of the Universe that we all live in. What are the properties that make the Universe go around? The class will investigate the physical stuff, matter, and create an ending project to demonstrate their understanding of one of the unique properties of matter, density and its uses in the real world.
How do you measure matter?
How do you measure the density of matter?
What is the density of water?
How does density apply to your life?
This project will help my students develop 21st century skills by:
Collaborating with peers.
Using the d=m/vol to find density of objects.
Solving problems and making decisions about their experiment.
Density in the Real World!!
Students will work in groups of four to create a Glogster to demonstrate that they understand how the occupation that they are given uses density.
They will also give a brief description of the occupation and what are the requirements for that career path. They will also, demonstrate that they understand how to measure matter and how to calculate density, which is an important property of matter. Finally, they will include a section on what other science skills are needed in their profession.
