Stage 3Learning Plan

I asked students to write down the answers the following 5 questions:
1. What are the three states of matter?
2. Please list 5 examples for each state
3. Please describe the diferences among these three states/how do you tell them apart?
4. Do you think they can change into each other? If so, how do they change?
5. Could you give an example youve seen of matter changing from one state to another?
(What pre-assessments will you use to check students prior knowledge, skill levels, and potential misconceptions?)
(Toward which goal does
learning event build?)


Progress Monitoring
(How will you monitor
students progress toward
acquisition, meaning, and
transfer during lesson
events?) (Formative

Student success at transfer, meaning, and acquisition depends upon their

participation in these
learning events
Lesson 1
Using graduate cylinders to measure the volume of irregular solids
Lesson 2
- Using different liquids to create liquid rainbow in the graduate
cylinders and measure the space that each liquid take up
Lesson 3
Learning the properties and application of fve common gases
Rotating through fve stations to explore the corresponding 5
properties of gases
Lesson 4
- Using cups of hot water and plates with ice to explore the process
of evaporation and condensation
Lesson 5
- Using ice, salt, food coloring, and eye droppers to create
colorful ice sculptures in order to explore the process of melting
