Choice Board Activity Ideas
l. ask 'what if' questions (e.g. What if the sun's property of generating heat changed? What if the boiling point changed for water?)
2. create a scavenger hunt to locate as many items of matter that share the list of properties in this puzzle (note: matter may share more than one property, so try to expand list to include all words)
3. create puzzles (crosswords, matching, multiple choice)
