Grade 2 Module 2
Mater of Materials
Students will learn:
How can we describe materials as different from one another and understand how their properties relate to their use?
Students work through a series of levels and unlock badges to become “Masters of Materials.”
They progress from Junior Researchers, learning to describe, compare, and sort materials, to Professors of Properties, who use what they’ve learned to design and build bridges. They also become engineers by building and testing towers, and discover how the properties of materials can change by making their own crayons.
Only when all five levels are complete will students be able to call themselves Masters.
