SCIENCE LESSON – Physical and Chemical Changes

By:  The Owl Teacher

Grades 3-6

When I taught fifth grade, I just loved the physical and chemical changes unit!  It was so much fun and really engaged my students.  So I have put it together for you!

This unit was so engaging because it is just packed full of hands-on experiments where students really dig into the properties of matter and determine what makes a physical change and what makes a chemical change.

For instance, we melt styrofoam cups:

We also created slime:


We explored the various properties of matter!  We looked closely at the three states – solid, liquid, and gas!

 We talked about a variety of scenerios where students had to determine if something was a physical or chemical change!

Included in this engaging resource are practice sheets and review sheets, answer keys, lesson plans, experimental labs, and much more!  You’ll even find some interactive notebook pieces such as this:
