August 23-September 20 Physical Properties of Matter

 This first unit of Science includes 5 days of lab safety and using equipment properly.
 
Key Concepts:
 
Concept 1 -Matter has physical properties that can be observed. With the exception of measuring volume, all of the physical properties of size, mass, states of matter, temperature, magnetism, and the ability to sink or float has been explored in grades 2 and 3.
 
Concept 2 -  We can measure physical properties of matter including size, mass, volume, and temperature.
 
Concept 3 - We can compare and contrast matter based on its physical properties, such as states of matter, magnetism, and ability to sink or float.
