Lesson Plan

Matter Man:

Students will be able to build a model of a snowman by using different states of matter. They will be able to use their prior knowledge of understanding that almost everything is made of matter. Then, they will use information learned to design and create a "Matter Man" and its environment.

Model Eliciting Activities, MEAs, are open-ended, interdisciplinary problem-solving activities that are meant to reveal students’ thinking about the concepts embedded in realistic situations. Click here to learn more about MEAs and how they can transform your classroom.
