What's the Matter? Fifth graders share their knowledge of physical science.

Hillside’s newest “teachers” -- the fifth grade class -- led science lessons on physical and chemical changes of matter with second graders, a subject the younger students are also studying as part of the science curriculum. The grade 5 matter unit culminates with the authentic assessment task to deepen student understanding. Teacher Chris Ebneth tasked the older students with creating the children's books on solids, liquids, and gases. The fifth graders were impressed by the second graders' science knowledge!
