Product Description

Matter is one of my favorite things to teach, but it's also one of the most difficult concepts for students to learn. Things like atoms and molecules can be such abstract concepts, which is why I've developed resources, investigations, and a non-fiction text to make matter and its related concepts accessible for all learners!

While I use this unit in my second grade classroom, it would be suitable for use for first grade enrichment, as well as in third and fourth grades. Please take a look at the preview to see all that is included, as well as see EACH page of the non-fiction text.

In this pack you'll be receiving the following resources:


- Is Air Matter? {air has volume & mass}
- Causes of Melting & Freezing
- Measuring Matter {practice w/ volume & mass}
- Water is a Cycle {observing the water cycle}
* water cycle diagram
* water cycle notes / assessment

- Matter Matters SCOOT {review game}
- Molecules Craftivity {function in each state}
- Schema Chart

- Changing States Flipbook {differentiated}

There's No Place Like Second Grade

Hi, I'm Sarah Plum! I'm a second-grade teacher in Northern Virginia. I teach a high-population of English Language Learners (ELLs), so all of my resources are ELL-friendly and fully-differentiated! I love math, and try to always find ways to create engaging, differentiated materials that are easy for teachers to implement, easy for students to LOVE, and easy for parents to replicate at home!
