    Main Ideas:

    Describing Matter-

    • Properties of matter (solid, liquid and gas)
    • Characteristic Properties (Boiling point, melting point)
    • Changes in matter (physical and chemical changes)
    • Types of Matter (mixtures, pure substances, elements, compounds)
    • Measuring Matter (Mass, weight, volume, density)
    • Particles of matter (atoms, Dalton, molecules)
    • Elements from Earth (gold, copper, iron)
    Labs:
    Calculating Density
    Silly Putty Lab
