While the teacher explains and discusses notes on matter combinations, students copy notes on a partially finished frame. The notes begin with an overview of matter, pure and mixed, and then continue to discuss elements, compounds, and mixtures. After the notes, students answer 9 review questions on the notes. Examples of elements, compounds, and mixtures are included in the notes. The notes also point out that compounds usually have different properties from the elements that make them up.
