A great activity to demonstrate several physical (and one chemical) properties of matter. Students will observe several objects for properties such as color, shape, texture, density, state, and malleability.
Main topics: matter, physical properties
Quick and easy to use. I have included the objects I use, but they can easily be replaced by what is on hand.
