Teacher-Facing Resources

Type:Application Exercise

Estimated Time:60 minutes

Grade:5

Score Type:Mixed Graded

Work completed by a student will be graded through a variety of scoring options including participation, student self-assessment and teacher assessment via rubric to provide flexibility with the type of grade sent to the Learning Management System (LMS) gradebook. Student work may include opened-ended questions, correct/incorrect responses, a final product and/or a self-assessment

Available Language: English


Vocabulary: Mixtures, Saturations, Science, Solutions, Spreadsheet Software


Primary Objectives:

  • Student creates spreadsheets to record data.
  • Student creates graphs from spreadsheet data to illustrate research data.
  • Student interprets graphs and summarizes findings.

Secondary Objectives:

  • Student observes and records physical properties of a mixture and solution.
  • Student evaluates and compares the components and properties of a mixture and solution.
  • Student estimates and compares saturation points of a solution.
  • Student writes a conclusion based on discovery.
