Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Models of Matter Blended Unit Blueprint

Description: 

This is a blueprint for a blended unit on matter for 4th grade. It incorporates f2f labs and discussion, reading of texts, and online resources such as video clips, review games in Socrative and Kahoot, and lots of use of Google apps. There are options for differentiation worked into the unit to use as needed. It is a work in progress and has not had a trial run yet. It is adapted from the Roots of Reading, Seeds of Science Unit (you would need the resources from this curriculum to use this unit), focusing only on the parts that match our GLCEs for Science in 4th grade:
• Compare and Contrast the states of matter (solid, liquid, gas).
• Explain how matter can change from one state to another by heating or cooling.

Learning Targets: 
Compare and Contrast the states of matter (solid, liquid, gas).
Explain how matter can change from one state to another by heating or cooling.
