View Sequence overview

Students will:

  • participate in planning and conducting a fair-test investigation.
  • make predictions about how easy it will be to change the shape of playdough (its malleability).
  • make claims supported by evidence collected during their investigation.


Students will represent their understanding as they:

  • record their fair-test investigation using an investigation planner.
  • record observation in a data table.
  • contribute to class discussions.
