Describing Matter
Adams, Krista; Feagin, Shannon
Science and Children, v54 n8 p52-57 Apr 2017
This article presents a lesson that was designed to explore the scientific descriptions of matter through both the intensive and extensive properties that students successfully added to their vocabulary. Students' examples demonstrated that there were places where their reasoning about matter faltered as related to how the material is the same throughout. After completing the matter unit, the authors determined where possible to continue discussions on the properties of matter throughout the school year.
