Day 1:

Objective (Focus): Students will review the concepts of melting and freezing and understand the changes in state of matter.

WE WILL: 1. Watch a short video about melting and freezing to activate prior knowledge. 2. Discuss the video and share what we already know about melting and freezing. 3. Complete a word study activity to review key vocabulary related to melting and freezing. 4. Engage in a math stretch activity to practice measuring temperature using a thermometer.

Opening: - Connection: “Yesterday, we learned about the different states of matter. Can anyone remind me what the three states of matter are?” - Bell Ringer: “Think about a time when you saw something melt or freeze. Share your experience with a partner.” - Word Study: Distribute a worksheet with vocabulary words related to melting and freezing. Students will match the words with their definitions.

Direct Instruction: - Explicit Teach: Use a visual aid or demonstration to explain the process of melting and freezing. Discuss the changes in state of matter and the role of temperature. - Guided Practice: Conduct a hands-on activity where students observe and record the changes in state of matter as they heat and cool different substances. - Independent Practice: Provide a worksheet with scenarios where students have to identify whether melting or freezing is occurring.

I WILL: - Close: Ask students to share one thing they learned about melting and freezing today. - Check for Understanding: Collect the completed word study worksheet and review the answers with the class.

Day 2:

Objective (Focus): Students will further explore melting and freezing through hands-on experiments and apply their understanding to real-life situations.

WE WILL: 1. Review the concepts of melting and freezing from the previous day. 2. Conduct a melting and freezing experiment using different substances. 3. Discuss the results of the experiment and relate them to the changes in state of matter. 4. Apply the knowledge of melting and freezing to real-life situations through a group activity.

Opening: - Connection: “Yesterday, we learned about the changes in state of matter during melting and freezing. Can anyone give me an example of a substance that melts or freezes?” - Bell Ringer: “Imagine you have a glass of ice water. What do you think will happen if you leave it outside on a hot summer day?” - Math Stretch: Provide a temperature conversion problem where students have to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit or vice versa.

Direct Instruction: - Explicit Teach: Review the concepts of melting and freezing using examples and visuals. - Guided Practice: Conduct a hands-on experiment where students observe and record the melting and freezing points of different substances. - Independent Practice: Distribute a worksheet with real-life scenarios where students have to identify whether melting or freezing is occurring and explain the reasons behind their choices.

I WILL: - Close: Ask students to share one thing they found interesting or surprising about melting and freezing. - Check for Understanding: Collect the completed worksheet and review the answers with the class.

Worksheets: 1. Worksheet 1: Vocabulary Matching - Students will match the vocabulary words (e.g., melting, freezing, temperature, state of matter) with their definitions.

  1. Worksheet 2: Real-Life Scenarios - Students will read different scenarios (e.g., making ice cream, boiling water) and identify whether melting or freezing is occurring in each situation. They will also explain the reasons behind their choices.
