What Is Air? (pre-assessment)
Let’s Get Started
This activity should be introduced and summarized as a whole-class discussion. Students will assess how much they know about the properties of air, and will discover that there are many things to learn. They will work individually to complete a pre-assessment worksheet. In addition, students will observe, draw conclusions, and apply prior knowledge to a new situation.
Give each student a copy of the “What Do We Know About Air?” worksheet. Ask students to give their best answers to ALL questions, even if they are uncertain. Ensure them that future class discussions will allow them to correctly answer all questions by the time they finish the unit.
