Properties Word Angle#03

Are you looking for unique and engaging teacher/parent/caregiver activities and resources for your properties of matter science programming? Here is a word angle puzzle that engages problem solving strategies while supporting vocabulary building students grades 2-3. Supports distance and blended learning, independent and differentiated learning.

Solve The Puzzles
1. review this list of 15 words below the word search grid
2. locate the circled letters (start bubbles)
3. trace the letter paths; paths travel up, down, right, left and most words make one right hand turn; some paths cross
4. track progress by crossing off each word, or using a check mark, to indicate that its letter path is traced

Choice Board Activity Ideas
l. ask 'what if' questions (e.g. What if an object could both sink and float? Explain.)
2. create a scavenger hunt to locate as many items of matter that share the list of properties in this puzzle (vary the type of matter: solid, liquid, gas)
3. create puzzles (crosswords, matching, multiple choice, word searches)

Three states of matter: solids, liquids and gases (plasma is not included here)

Properties of matter include the various characteristics of matter (solid, liquid, gas) such as: size (small, big), weight/mass, volume, boiling & freezing points, color (colors of the rainbow, for example), hard/soft, texture (what matter feels like: gooey, prickly, smooth, rough, crinkly, soft, furry), whether matter sinks or floats, taste (crunchy, sweet, sour, bitter), whether something is magnetic or not, sound (noisy, quiet),
