School: Delay Middle School, Lewisville, TX
Planned By: Michelle Garcia
Original Author: Michelle Garcia, Lewisville
*** This lesson should be implemented within the highest/last level of Bloom's Taxonomy -Students should be able to analyze, evaluate, and create.

Instructions:
Students will create a video presentation describing physical and chemical properties of matter and its ever-ending changes. Students should use critical and supporting vocabulary throughout the video presentation. The video should not be longer than 10 minutes and should be created for students of your age. Remember to be creative and have fun while recording, editing and publishing your video.

Student Rubric: (Given to the student to guide their learning process)

6 different areas of focus:

1. Students will define physical properties and changes
10pts Completely defines both physical properties and/or it's changes
8pts Mostly defines both physical properties and/or it's changes
5pts Somewhat defines both physical properties and/or it's changes
3pts - Does not define both physical properties and it's changes
2. Students will define chemical properties and changes
10pts Completely defines both chemical properties and/or it's changes
8pts Mostly defines both chemical properties and/or it's changes
5pts Somewhat defines both chemical properties and/or it's changes
3pts - Does not define both chemical properties and it's changes
3. Students will give examples of physical changes
30pts Student completely/accurately give 5 examples of physical changes
20pts Students give 4 out of 5 accurate examples of physical changes
15pts Students give 3 out of 5 accurate examples of physical changes
10pts Students give 1 -2 out of 5 examples of physical changes
4. Students will give examples of chemical changes
30pts Student completely/accurately give 5 examples of chemical changes
20pts Students give 4 out of 5 accurate examples of chemical changes
15pts Students give 3 out of 5 accurate examples of chemical changes
10pts Students give 1 -2 out of 5 examples of chemical changes
5. Students will explain the differences between physical and chemical changes
10pts - Students explain completely the difference with no question
8pts - Students somewhat completely the difference
5pts Students somewhat explains the difference but confusing
3pts Students do not explain the difference
6. Students will create a student quiz at the end of video for audience interaction
10pts Students created 4-5 questions related to the student presentation
8pts- Students created 3 questions related to the student presentation
5pts Students created 1-2 questions related to the student presentation
0pts Students created no quiz






Prior knowledge:

Students should understand that:
Substances are made of matter
Substances formed by chemical changes have new physical and chemical properties
Students should know that:
Physical (density, boiling point, melting point, color, odor, luster, magnetism, ability to form solution, conductivity, malleability) and chemical properties (flammability, ability to rust, production of gas) are used to describe a substance.
A change in energy will cause a change in the state of matter of a substance.
Elements are pure substances that cannot be broken down into other substances by physical or chemical means.
Substances with new properties are formed as a result of a chemical change.
Critical Vocabulary:
INTRO WORDS:
matter/substance
element
compound
metal
non-metal
metalloid
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES:
luster
phase change
malleability
conductivity
magnetism
density
CHEMICAL PROPERTIES:
combustion
corrosion/rust/tarnish
flammability
Supporting Vocabulary

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES:
color
shape
odor
texture
hardness



Cross-Curriculum Ideas
Geography - Discovery physical and chemical changes within our world.
Math - Taking measurements for physical and chemical changes and make scale models.
Reading - Become my educated in furthur research of matter.
Follow-Up
All video's will be reviewed/watched in class for student reflection/discussion.
