•  Chemistry and Matter
    During this unit, students will learn to:
    1.  observe and measure physical and chemical properties of matter. 
    2.  use physical and chemical properties to identify and classify matter.
    3. compare the properties of solids, liquids and gases.
    4. use a scientific notebook.
    Why is this important?
       We are surrounded by matter.  We need to know how this matter affects us and
    how we can affect matter.  To be able to use matter, we need to know the types
    of matter and the properties of matter.
