Science 4 Inquiry: Middle School Physical Science Lessons
The 10 lessons in the Science 4 Inquiry collection introduce middle schoolers to Physical Science. Scholars watch videos, design experiments, and play interactive games to understand the elements of physical science. They create a flowchart sorting matter into mixtures and pure substances, work in groups to simulate the ability of waves to travel through solids, liquids, gases, and a vacuum, and complete multiple experiments with colors, smells, and bubbles. Young scientists also explore different types of energy. They match the types of energy and identify when energy transfers from one type to another. In other lessons, young scientists learn about the force of magnetism, the reflection and refraction of light, the change of energy as molecules change phases of matter, and the workings of musical pipes. The lessons are engaging and sure to spark an interest in science.
