## Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 States of Matter After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain the three states of matter and the properties of a solid, a liquid, and a gas.
2 Mass of Solids and Liquids After completing this lesson, explain what mass is and how it measures matter.
3 Volume of Solids and Liquids After completing this lesson, ask your student to explain what volume is and how to measure volume.

## 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

1. What are the states of matter?
Mass of Solids and Liquids
1. What is mass?
Volume of Solids and Liquids
1. What is volume?

## 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.

## Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:

Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:

• What is the main idea?
• What are three things new you learned?
• How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
