Grades 9–12. This refill kit provides the consumable materials for the Inquiries in Science®: Understanding Properties of Matter Kit (item #251200).



This item will ship on or about 8/3/21
Grades 9–12.
  • Investigate intensive and extensive properties
  • Explore differences between chemical and physical changes
  • Classify samples as elements, compounds, and mixtures
Students study the classification of matter, intensive and extensive properties, and chemical and physical properties and changes. As a final activity, students use their knowledge to design and conduct an experiment based on the relationship between intensive and extensive properties, focusing specifically on density.

Kit includes lab supplies (samples of elements, compounds, and mixtures as well as materials to perform several experiments demonstrating physical and chemical changes—enough for at least 30 students working in groups of 3) plus teacher's manual.

Kit Refill replenishes consumed materials.

Inquiries in Science Series

Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.

Improve Student Achievement

Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

  • Consider a real-world question or problem
  • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
  • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
  • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).
