4 A great asset
In the description for this resource it says it can be used for elementary school. When using the tool to see what standards it aligns to, it does not mention 3rd grade for NC. I do believe that needs to be updated. The very first video of the food dye is perfect for 3rd graders demonstrating the difference between hot and cold. The application and assessment provided within this resource are very helpful and a great way to see if students understand the concepts being taught. I do believe some of the videos/simulations provided are above 3rd grade level and I can understand from that point of view as to why 3rd grade was not listed for standards to align to. This mainly applies to heating things up, convection and conduction. The simulation for the temperature of molecules is perfect for having students understand friction and giving them a visual to what happens to molecules as the temperature goes up and down.
