This Water’s the Matter module has five units of instruction. Clicking on the unit titles will take you to the topic. These units include an interactive PowerPoint presentation, pre- and post-tests in multiple formats for varied delivery methods, note-taking outline, and multiple activities to reinforce and enrich the content of the lessons.
Standards Aligned: Each unit is aligned to the NGSS and TEKS for both middle school science and high school science courses, as appropriate for the lesson content. A document included with each unit provides the standards for that unit.
You may go through the units in any sequence, but we suggest first exploring Unit 1, Measuring Mass. After that, the sequence does not matter.

Measuring Dissolved Oxygen
These modules are designed to be used by middle and high school students. The interactive PowerPoint documents are developed to be student-centered and self- guided. The note-taking outlines go along with the PowerPoint presentations and focus on materials that are required in the NGSS and TEKS standards. The pre- and post- tests are developed to prepare students for the types of questions that they might encounter on standardized tests. There are many higher level questions included in the presentations and the activities that encourage students to critically analyze the content. Full teacher instructions are included in each unit.
