Summer SAVY Session 3, Day 5 – Matter Mysteries
Day 5: The final day of Matter Mysteries was an exploding success! Students were able to present their individual and group matter investigations. We had so many amazing creative ideas represented, and the children’s enthusiasm and excitement for their chosen investigations proved that their planning efforts paid off. From erupting volcanoes to soda fountain fun, from chemical changes to models of prehistoric creatures, your child’s unique interests were thoroughly investigated and molded into testable theories culminating with a fun project. So much was learned this week, and SO much fun was had by all.
We are confident that our four course objectives were met by all students:
- Students will know the three phases of matter and be able to describe the characteristics/properties of each type.
- Students will be able to demonstrate the movement of molecular particles in various ways representing each of the three phases of matter (solid, liquid, and gas).
- Students will know that matter can change states, and be able to explain what can cause matter to change states.
- Students will gain an understanding of the scientific investigation process as they independently design and carry out an investigation about matter.
Be sure to help your child wrap up this week by asking:
-What was your favorite activity in SAVY?
-Tell me three new things you learned about matter.
