Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 Everything's Matter After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain what matter is and to give examples of matter.
2 Properties of Matter After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain what physical properties are and the physical properties of matter.
3 Measuring Temperature After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain what temperature is and how to measure it. If possible get a thermometer and have your student measure the temperature outside at various points in the day.

## Module Guiding Questions:

When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Lesson Title Question

## Module Video Questions:

When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.
