Crook's Silly Science

In Science we will move into the Matter Unit. Students will learn that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used. Students will measure, compare, and contrast physical properties of matter, including size, mass, volume, states (solid, liquid, gas), temperature, magnetism, and the ability to sink or float. We will predict the changes caused by heating and cooling such as ice becoming liquid water and condensation forming on the outside of a glass of ice water. As well as compare and contrast a variety of mixtures and solutions such as rocks in sand, sand in water, or sugar in water.
