LE.PS1A.c 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.


UE.PS1A.a Matter of any type can be subdivided into particles that are too small to see, but even then the matter still exists and can be detected by other means. A model showing that gases are made from matter particles that are too small to see and are moving freely around in space can explain many observations, including boiling water, the inflation and shape of a balloon and the effects of air on larger particles or objects.

UE.PS1B.a When two or more different substances are mixed, a new substance with different properties may be formed.
