Properties of Matter from Hands-On Science: An Inquiry Approach completely aligns with BC’s New Curriculum for science. Grounded in the Know-Do-Understand model, First Peoples knowledge and perspectives, and student-driven scientific inquiry, this custom-written resource:

  • emphasizes Core Competencies, so students engage in deeper and lifelong learning
  • develops Curricular Competencies as students explore science through hands-on activities
  • fosters a deep understanding of the Big Ideas in science

Using proven Hands-On features, Properties of Matter contains information and materials for both teachers and students including: Curricular Competencies correlation charts; background information on the science topics; complete, easy-to-follow lesson plans; reproducible student materials; and materials lists.

Innovative new elements have been developed specifically for the new curriculum:

  • a multi-age approach
  • a five-part instructional process—Engage, Explore, Expand, Embed, Enhance
  • an emphasis on technology, sustainability, and personalized learning
  • a fully developed assessment plan for summative, formative, and student self-assessment
  • a focus on real-life Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies
  • learning centres that focus on multiple intelligences and universal design for learning (UDL)
  • place-based learning activities, Makerspaces, and Loose Parts

In Properties of Matter students investigate matter. Core Competencies and Curricular Competencies will be addressed while students explore the following Big Ideas:

  • Humans interact with matter every day through familiar materials.
  • Materials can be changed through physical and chemical processes.
  • Matter is useful because of its properties.
