Day 1:

Objective: Students will be able to explain the concepts of melting and freezing.

Bell Ringer: Show the students a picture of an ice cube and ask them to describe what happens when the ice cube is left outside on a hot day. Allow a few students to share their answers.

Direct Instruction (Explicit Teach): 1. Begin by defining the terms “melting” and “freezing” to the students. Explain that melting is when a solid turns into a liquid, and freezing is when a liquid turns into a solid. 2. Show the students a video or a demonstration of an ice cube melting. Discuss what they observe during the process. 3. Provide examples of everyday objects that melt and freeze, such as ice cream melting on a hot day or water freezing into ice cubes in the freezer. 4. Discuss the concept of temperature and how it affects the state of matter. Explain that when something gets warmer, it melts, and when it gets colder, it freezes.

Guided/Independent Practice: 1. Distribute Worksheet 1: “Melting and Freezing” to each student. 2. Instruct the students to complete the worksheet by drawing a line to match the object with its corresponding state of matter (solid, liquid, or gas). 3. Circulate the classroom to provide assistance and check for understanding.

Day 2:

Objective: Students will be able to identify examples of melting and freezing in their daily lives.

Bell Ringer: Show the students a picture of a popsicle and ask them to describe what happens when a popsicle is left outside on a hot day. Allow a few students to share their answers.

Direct Instruction (Explicit Teach): 1. Review the concepts of melting and freezing from the previous day’s lesson. 2. Discuss with the students different scenarios in which they might observe melting and freezing in their daily lives, such as ice cream melting, water freezing into ice cubes, or a puddle of water drying up. 3. Show pictures or provide real-life examples of these scenarios to reinforce the concepts.

Guided/Independent Practice: 1. Distribute Worksheet 2: “Melting and Freezing in Our Lives” to each student. 2. Instruct the students to complete the worksheet by drawing or writing examples of melting and freezing that they have observed in their daily lives. 3. Encourage the students to be creative and think of unique examples. 4. Collect the completed worksheets and review them to assess the students’ understanding.

Note: The worksheets mentioned in the lesson plan are not provided. You can create your own worksheets based on the objectives and concepts discussed in the lesson.
