Properties of Matter Collection

This collection is actually very useful for the topic Properties of Matter. I thought all of the resources included in the collection all built on top of each other and added greatly to the topic. I really enjoyed reading through the different experiments that were provided throughout the collection. I thought those experiments were ones that could easily be done in a normal classroom setting, appropriate for the grade levels stated, were tied in to the topic of Properties of Matter, and are enjoyable for the students to participate in. Also, I thought the Formative Assessment article was a valuable resource to add for teachers. It was a great insight for future teachers to learn how to question students and probe their learning in the classroom to enhance their education. This is also very helpful in measuring the students progress from beginning to end of the lesson and see if they have improved in the overall concept. This way the teacher can know if they have to reteach the lesson or what can be done to go over the lesson to benefit the student.
