Investigating Matter: Identifying Properties and States of Matter part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this activity about matter, students investigate the three states of matter by participating in a small group lab. Students will observe, question, and investigate the properties of solids, liquids, and gases.

Investigating Magnetism: What are Magnets and Why Do They Attract or Repel? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this magnetism activity, students investigate why magnets attract certain objects and how the magnets can attract or repel each other by participating in a classroom activity. Students will observe, question, and investigate how the magnets interact with each other and the objects around them.

Investigating Rotation: Why Is There Day and Night? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this rotation activity, students investigate what causes day and night by participating in a classroom activity. Students will observe, question, and investigate how the relationship between the earth and sun causes day and night.

Investigating the Water Cycle: Evaporation part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
In this water cycle activity, students investigate the evaporation process by participating in an outdoor evaporation experiment held on the school grounds. Students will determine where evaporation takes place the fastest and how nature and humans can affect the process. Observations will be done and data is recorded in each student's science notebook so that the process can be discussed and analyzed.
