5. 5. By observing and measuring properties ofdifferent objects in this lesson you will find thatobjects in our world have many differentcharacteristics or traits we can describe that willhelp us classify and identify the best materials fordifferent tasks.  Objects can have properties including size,mass, shape, color, temperature, flexibility andthe ability to react with other substances. Weobserve and measure these properties using toolssuch as a meter tape, balances andthermometers.
6. 6. Objective:1.ID properties of objects such as size, mass, shape, color, flexibilityand texture2.Notice that many properties can be observed by using oursenses(not taste) and tools3.Distinguish properties associated with certain materials makingthem best suited for certain tasks Materials Needed:1. Bag of Supplies: Clay, Metal Bolt, Wood Block, Plastic Spoon ,Sponge Brush, WhatzIt?, Rock, Mirror2. Recording Sheets3. Lab Analysis Sheet
7. 7. Procedure:1.Each person must complete the descriptions for each ofthe items in the Supply Bag2.Each member must orally present their description of atleast 2 items for the group to give feedback (8 items –each person chooses 2 to present)3.Once every member has presented, the group must sortthe materials by placing the names in the items in theappropriate area of the Venn Diagrams4.Each person must then answer the analysis questionsbased on their observations and organization ofinformation.
8. 8. Procedure: 1. Each person must complete the descriptions for each of the items in the Supply Bag A. Illustrate and Color Item B. Carefully complete the observations of yourSponge items by filling in required boxes onBrush recording sheets (Word Bank words are only suggestions….use the computers for Rock additional words Modeling Clay Mirror Wood Block Whatzit Whatz Plastic it Spoon Wh atz it Metal Bolt
9. 9. Procedure:1. Sometimes scientist do not have the tools or ability to “see” what’s inside or how to break an object apart. A. For WHATZIT you will need to make indirect observations. B. You must ID any characteristics you can about the object without opening the box. C. You may describe the outside with what your sense and tools can tell you. Whatz it Wh atz it
10. 10. Procedure: 1. Each person must complete the descriptions for each of the items in the Supply Bag A. Illustrate and Color Item B. Carefully complete the observations of yourSponge items by filling in required boxes onBrush recording sheets (Word Bank words are only suggestions….use the computers for Rock additional words Modeling Clay Mirror Wood Block Whatzit Whatz Plastic it Spoon Wh atz it Metal Bolt
11. 11. Homework:1)None unless you owe mesomething.2)Describing Matter is not due untilTuesday. Enjoy your weekend!
