Instructional Ideas

  1. Before teaching an instructional unit about the three states of matter, teachers can have students independently explore this app to build their background knowledge. After exploring the app and before presenting a formal lesson, teachers can conduct a pre-assessment by having students complete a K-W-L about each state of matter or by composing a journal related to what they learned from the app.
  2. The teacher can project the quiz included in this app as a method for review. To do so, students first take the quiz independently, and then the teacher facilitates a class conversation by using each quiz question as a discussion prompt.
  3. After reviewing the content in this app, students can go on a scavenger hunt in which they have to find 10 items in the classroom that each represents a different state of matter. A three-column graphic organizer with headings for each state of matter would further support students in completing the scavenger hunt.
