Today in class we started our Chemistry unit with defining matter and its three states.
We watched Bill Nye on matter, participated in a phase change demo and reviewed what matter is.
- Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space
- Matter can exist in 5 states, Solid, Liquid, Gas, BE condensates and Plasmas; we will only focus on solid, liquid and gas for 6th grade (check out this link if you are interested on more http://www.chem4kids.com/files/matter_states.html)
No homework tonight!!!
