Learning Intentions Students will be able to: • understand how materials can be changed by interacting physically with the material (plasticine) [including temperature change]; • understand and use appropriate scientific vocabulary to describe and compare properties of materials; • measure by comparing objects, or by using informal units; • identify and explore information and ideas; • respond to questions, make predictions, and participate in guided investigations; • follow instructions to record (including the option of using digital technologies) and to sort their observations and share them with others.
