Matter surrounds us. It can take on many forms and change between one phase to the next. In this unit, second graders will be using the practices of scientists and engineers to discover more about matter!
At the completion of their experiment to determine which material absorbed the most water, second graders needed to interpret the data. Data tell a story and can inform a design solution. Second graders constructed graphs and then had to use the data to provide evidence for which material would be the best to use in a bib and which would be the worst. Second graders are truly working on the science and engineering practices of analyzing and interpreting data and arguing from evidence! Way to go second grade!
