Reversible and Irreversible Changes Science Station Sort
Teach students about whether heat causes permanent changes with a SORT about Reversible and Irreversible Changes aligned with the Next Generation Science Stations for Second Grade. In this station, the sort cards include an image for students to look at, as well as text for them to read. Students will look over each card to determine if each item underwent a reversible or irreversible change.
What is Included in the Reversible and Irreversible Changes Sort Station
Included in the Sort about the Reversible or Irreversible Changes are:
- Larger table-group color sorting cards
- Smaller cut and paste sort for individual students
- Differentiated questions in short answer, fill-in-the-blank, and multiple-choice formats. Worksheet and task cards are included for some options.
- Answer key
Reversible and Irreversible Changes Sort for Table Groups
There are two ways to do this sort. One way is in table groups where students collaboratively look at the images on the cards and determine which type of change the object underwent: a reversible change or irreversible change.
There are different types of changes that students will learn about in this sort: reversible or irreversible. Students will decide whether heat causes a permanent change in an object or not.
This sort has colorful images that students analyze and decide the type of change that has occurred: reversible or irreversible.
Cut and Paste Science Sort Option
The second way to do the sort is a cut and paste option. Students can do both options: sort color option as a whole group and the cut and paste option individually. Or you can choose to have students do only one option.
The cut and paste option is all in black and white and a worksheet format. After reading the informational passage, students look at the images and then sort them into the correct type of change: reversible or irreversible.
Differentiated Responses to Meet the Needs of All Learners
Like all of our science stations, differentiated responses are available for students to demonstrate their understanding. Below is an example of the Short Answer worksheet. Fill-in-the-blanks and multiple-choice task cards are also available.
