This unit also contains a teaching PowerPoint on the Structure and Properties of Matter.

Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter
Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties. (2-PS1-1)
• Pancake ingredients classified into solid or liquid.
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions Heating or cooling a substance may cause changes that can be observed. Sometimes these changes are reversible, and sometimes they are not. (2-PS1-4)
• Heating the liquid batter turns it into a solid. Students will form a hypothesis as to whether or not this solid will turn back into a liquid and test their hypothesis. Students will explain their experiments.
