Included in this fun set are 23 matter vocabulary cards for students to match. Simply print, laminate, and cut apart the cards for a fun center. My students love trying to match the words to their definitions as quickly and accurately as they can. Print in color or black and white to save ink.
S5P1. Students will verify that an object is the sum of its parts.
a. Demonstrate that the mass of an object is equal to the sum of its parts by manipulating and measuring different objects made of various parts.
b. Investigate how common items have parts that are too small to be seen without magnification.
S5P2. Students will explain the difference between a physical change and a chemical change.
a. Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.
b. Recognize that the changes in state of water (water vapor/steam, liquid, ice) are due to temperature differences and are examples of physical change.
c. Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.
