Grades 6–10. In the unit Exploring the Properties of Matter, students investigate basic properties of matter and the use of these properties to distinguish 1 substance from another. Students begin by examining physical properties and then turn to the characteristic properties of density; boiling, melting, and freezing points; rates of thermal expansion; and solubility. They determine that these properties are independent of amount and, taken together, can be used to identify an unknown substance.
