I'm Gonna Pass The STAAR!

Objective

We will classify matter based on physical properties , including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy.


I will sort objects on a t chart after testing for electrical conduction and magnetism.


I will watch video clip concerning classifying matter on physical properties.


I will answer released STAAR questions concerning classifying matter on physical properties.

Electricity & Magnetism

Using the materials on your table, sort the objects on the T Chart for:


Conducts Electricity YES or NO


Magnetic Force YES or NO


FLOAT or SINK

What is the Difference?

Both of these people are participating in a board sport. The man on the left is snowboarding in Norway. The woman on the right is sandboarding in Dubai. Snow and sand are both kinds of matter, but they have different properties. What are some ways snow and sand differ? One difference is the temperature at which they melt. Snow melts at 0°C. In contrast, sand melts at about 1600°C! Ouch, that is really hot! That's probably why you haven't ever seen melted sand. The temperature at which something melts is its melting point. Melting point is just one of many physical properties of matter.
