The focus of this lesson is for students to obtain a better grasp of what matter is and how it changes. The essential questions for the lesson are:
- What is matter?
- How can we describe matter?
- How can matter be changed?
- How can we describe the changes that take place in matter?
As students go through the lab activities, they will have several opportunities to make connections between matter, properties, and changes. They will use an analysis sheet to record their observations of the changes as they are occurring.
